UIL One Act Play Directors, Contests and COVID-19

UIL One Act Play Directors,

As we continue to monitor the rapidly changing status of COVID-19 (Coronavirus) and how it is impacting students and their activities we have the following updates regarding the remaining UIL One act Play Contests for the 2019-2020 school year.

All UIL events scheduled March 16-29 are to be suspended. Rehearsals and practices during the time of suspension may be held with approval from the local school district. Beginning on March 30th events may resume with the considerations that follow. Any changes to these dates will be communicated as they become available. 

One-Act Play

Note: Sunday competitions are allowed.

  • One-Act Play District/Bi-District certification deadline, originally scheduled March 26, has been extended to April 7.
  • One-Act Play Area certification deadline, originally scheduled for April 4, has been extended to April 14.

We ask that schools and local District Executive Committees work collaboratively and reasonably with one another in rescheduling district and bi-district one-act play. Area one-act play will be scheduled based on host site availability and will be communicated via the UIL website.

 

Regional Academic, Speech and One-Act Play

Academic Regional Meets are still scheduled for April 17-18 and One-Act Play Regional dates remain April 15-18. Current sites are subject to change.

 

District Competition 

Scheduling your district competitions remain at your local administration’s discretion. We ask that schools and local District Executive Committees work collaboratively and reasonably with one another in rescheduling district competitions, as well as bi-district one-act play. Area one-act play will be scheduled based on host site availability.

 

Our office will work with contest managers and contest sites to reschedule as school districts allow. One Act Play directors,  please have your contest managers update the State theatre director, Paula Rodriguez, prodriguez@uiltexas.org with any changes in contest dates and locations. If you have immediate concerns, do not hesitate to call (512) 471-4517.

We appreciate your cooperation and all that you do for UIL member schools.

Thank you,

Paula Rodriguez
