One Act Play Festival

The yearly festival asks students to choose or write a play that all takes place in one act. We have modelled our process after the National Theatre School Drama Festival that provides “an opportunity for students to discover the complex and rewarding work of creating theatre”. Using the NTS model, productions need to be between 15 and 50 minutes in length and showcase the work of students. Like NTS, our festival also provides opportunities to strengthen an openness to collaboration, professionalism. self-motivation/ability to motivate others, the ability to delegate tasks well, listening and communication skills and imagination.

Auditions happen at the end of September/early October and the performance date is the beginning of December. We welcome students from all grades, and all levels of experience, to act, direct, stage manage, head crews for props, set, costumes, lighting and sound. It's a fantastic opportunity to develop new friendships, leadership and creative thinking. Be sure to get involved in any way you would like! Sign ups and additional information are located outside Room 123.
