What is it?
The one-act play is a play production contest, and is part of the Nebraska School Activities Association (NSAA). We prepare and rehearse a 30-minute play, & then perform at a District contest with 7 other schools during the first week in December. The play is judged in the areas of acting, staging, set, & light design. We also perform at least one public show in Alliance for the community, family and friends.
The PURPOSE of one-act is to learn the art of theatre: to cooperate as a group to create and bring to life a story or an artistic experience before a live audience. We also have fun, play theatre games, learn different skills and aspects of theatre production, develop confidence, and make friends! (NOTE: One-act is an NSAA sanctioned activity, and students MUST remain academically eligible to participate.)
How to get involved
Come and see Mrs. Green in Room 204 after school! She will give you all the information you need to get involved! You must participate in a fun, low-stress audition to be considered for a role onstage. However, you do not need to audition to help with lights, sound, props, or set work. Auditions are usually held during the second week in September. The daily announcements will always have information regarding what/where/when for the one-act play. Also, Mrs. Green is always available after school to help and answer questions.
When are rehearsals?
Rehearsals begin in mid-September, and are held every Monday & Tuesday evening from 6:50 – 8:30 pm, and every Thursday from 4:00 - 5:30 pm. We have lots of fun! Join us!
