One Acts

Our One-Act New Play Festival

Our One-Act New Play Festival is on hiatus for 2018-19, but should be back the season after. The 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.
