In first half of the class, students prepare a one act
play for entry in the Vermont Drama Festival in March where exciting theater is presented by students from other schools throughout the state. One Act students study the principles of acting, from character analysis to improvisation. They also gain a working knowledge of the technical aspects of theater. The second half of the class is dedicated to playwriting. Students will study several published plays, and then draft, revise, and polish a ten-minute play. Up to eight plays will be selected for TA’s annual Ten-Minute Play Festival.

Note: Students may elect One Act Play Competition and Playwriting for either Arts or English credit.
