About the One-Act Play Competition:
In the UIL one-act play competition, similarly-sized Texas schools present an 18- to 40-minute play usually adjudicated by a panel of three judges or a single judge.
Students advance through four possible levels of competition: district, bi-district, region and state. At each level, the judge awards individual acting honors and selects two productions to advance.
