Drama Festival

One Act Plays and Dramatic Interpretations

Festival Support is provided by Tyler Civic Theatre.
To REGISTER STUDENTS beginning October 18, click here for the General Info page and scroll to the Register Students section. You can also access a document, How to Register Students on that page.

The Drama Festival is for Middle and High School students interested in the fine arts and is designed to give these students a positive theater experience that fosters participation in, commitment to and appreciate of quality theater. It encourages students to appreciate that theater is a collaborative art form in which each student can recognize the value of an individual's contribution to the ensemble.

At the Middle School Level, the group presents a One Act Play. The contest does not identify a "best play" from those participating, but each play is judged against a standard, and each school receives 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, Duologues, Musical Theater Solos, and Musical Theater Ensemble
