One Act Play

Wrenshall One Act Play

This is a Minnesota High School League (MSHSL) sponsored activity/competition that is also presented to the school and community. 

Any student in Grades 7-12 is eligible to participate. The MSHSL One Act competition allows students the opportunity to improve their skills, see dramatic presentations by other schools, and perform before a critical audience. Students perform a one act play, either a play written as a one act or a cut version of a full length play that is viewed by a panel of judges and other students. The best play from each competition advances to the next level culminating in the state championship. The size of the cast is flexible and props and staging are to be kept to a minimum.

The Minnesota State High School League State One Act Play Festival does not involve direct competition. Judges rate the plays according to specific criteria, including pace, blocking, costuming, and projection of the play’s meaning. Each production is limited to 10 minutes of stage preparation and 35 minutes of actual performance.
