Students will have the opportunity to work in all aspects of the production of a 40-minute play. During the production of the play they will be able:

  1. to satisfy the competitive, artistic spirit with friendly rivalry among schools, emphasizing high quality performance in this creative art;
  2. to foster appreciation of good acting, good directing and good drama;
  3. to promote interest in that art form most readily usable in leisure time during adult life;
  4. to learn to lose or win graciously, accepting in good sportsmanship the judge's decision and criticism with a view to improve future productions; and
  5. to increase the number of schools that have adopted theatre arts as an academic subject in school curricula.

Schools will produce a play in accordance to the rules and regulations in the current One-Act Play Handbook and Section 1033 and Section 1034, with the following exceptions:

  1. All deadlines and schedules are to be determined by the district executive committee.
  2. Enrollment and Title Entry Cards are not required for junior high schools and will not be available from the League office.

For contest managers, a new Guide for One Act Play Contest Managers is now available. See the Academic Study Materials Order Form.
