One Acts

Our Annual One-Act New Play Festival

Our annual One-Act Student New Play Festival presents short plays written, directed, acted, and designed by students. It's one of the most fun and popular events of the season and a great way to get involved in the Theatre  Program with a lesser time commitment than one of our mainstage productions! See below for the many ways to get involved.
