One Acts

Competitive One Act Festival

What is One Act Festival?

It is a drama competition where schools vie for a chance to advance to Saskatchewan Drama Association’s Provincial One Act Festival.  All plays are less than 60 minutes long and are judged by both Front of House and Back Stage adjudicators.  Acting and the technical aspects are evaluated using a marking system.  Each play receives feedback in a production workshop with the adjudicators.  The play with the highest marks goes on to compete at the Provincial Festival at the University of Regina in May. 

 When and Where is One Act Festival?

The regional festival happens in early spring and is held in the Centennial Auditorium at AE Peacock Collegiate. Provincial Festival happens the first week in May at the University of Regina. 

 Why Should a Student Participate in One Acts?

Besides being SO MUCH FUN…

  •  It’s a unique way to serve & glorify God by using the abilities He gives each of us and to minister to our peers in other schools.
  •  It’s a great way of learning how to do drama in a professional way.
  • To see other great high school productions and get to know students from around the province.

 Who Can be Involved?

Drama festival is primarily designed for high school students.  Cornerstone students in grades 7-12 are welcome to audition and/or join the technical crew. Occasionally we invite younger students to be in the cast depending on the needs of the play.
