2. Mail the following:


a) A copy of your "One-Act Play and Scenery Approval Request Form 2017-18."


b) The complete published play which specifically and clearly indicates  
     i) The exact portions of the total script to be used. This includes dialogue and action. (Highlighted in Yellow)
     ii) Deletion of all dialogue and business not to be used. Make it clear that you are cutting but light enough that a reader can look at the material that has been eliminated. (Strike-through in pen) 
     iii) Deletion of all language and action that violates the "Standards Rule." (Strike-through in pen) 
     iv) Deletion of scenery that might restrict approval. Make it clear that you are cutting but light enough that a reader can look at the material that has been eliminated. (Strike-through in pen)

c) A 30.00 payment made out to "UT-Austin/ UIL"

NOTE: If you are doing the play in its entirety, with no cuts, YOU MUST include a note with your submission with this information. Sending a completely unmarked script and no note will mean that your play is returned to you unread.
