In the Middle School Level, the group presents a One Act Play. The contest does not identify a "best play" from those participating, but judges each play by a standard with each school receiving a rating based on that standard. The critic judge provides positive suggestions to assist the students in continued participation in theater.
Each school or group with students in grades 6 through 8 may register 1 play in the Middle School Level of the festival.
The focus at the High School Level is dramatic interpretation. Each school or group may register 3 entries in each Division at the High School Level - Monologues and Duologues.
