The UIL One-Act Play District contest is today, March 4th at Whitehouse High School. Members of the Panther Players will compete at the Whitehouse high school auditorium at 2 p.m..
Those competing in Lufkin’s district are the following schools: Whitehouse, Tyler, Jacksonville, Nacogdoches and Huntsville.
They will perform the play “Rabbit Hole” by David Lindsay-Abaire.
UIL One-Act Play contest is where similarly sized schools present an 18–40-minute play with 7 minutes to set up and tear down the scenic pieces for the play and will be adjudicated by a panel of three judges. The contest is held on a single day and is open to the public. There are six possible levels of competition: Zone, District, Bi-District, Area, Region, and State. At each level of competition, a judge awards individual acting awards and selects three productions to advance to the next level of competition up to the Regional Level, where only two will advance to the State Level. After the awards are announced, a Judge gives an oral critique to each school.
Good luck to our students!
