I would like to formally invite any sophomore or junior to audition for the 2019 One Act Competition Class.
The goal of this class is to select, design, mount and perform a one-act play using both actors and technicians. This class will emphasize production work on a forty-minute play that will be entered into the Wisconsin High School Theatre Festival. Students will audition for a One Act show that the class will compete in the WHSFA competition. The whole trimester is taken over with building the set, rehearsing and gathering costumes for the competition, performing for other classes and then finally competing.
This is also an extra-curricular course, as rehearsals will run after school. Students also compete over the course of 3 weekends, which are mandatory for the acceptance into this course.
For the memorized monologue, if you already have one memorized, use it! Don’t keep on memorizing monologues, have three or four under your hat at all times so you can audition for anything at any time!!

Before you sign up I need you to think long and hard about your dedication. Do you really want to act in the One Act production? How willing are you to be in the class? Give up a class that is conflicting with One Act? Stay after school to work on a scene? Come to weekend rehearsals? What are you willing to give up for One Act? If you aren’t willing to give something up for this class, I have to question why you would want to part-take in such a grueling class.
