One Act Play, a division of Literary, is a play that takes place in one act or scene, as opposed to plays that take place over multiple acts. Students participate in auditions for parts in the play. Whether a student is selected for a major or minor roll or as a member of the makeup, wardrobe or stage crew, each person is important to the success of the final product. Before heading off to the Region competition, the cast will perform for the home crowd at an annual Dessert Theatre. Then, cast and crew head to region competition and hopefully on to state competition. Students who participate in one-act gain confidence in public speaking, stage presence, and teamwork these are all life skills which contribute to the self-worth of an individual.
