Maine High School One-Acts

March 7, 2019

Opportunity in communities across the state

This weekend, March 8 and 9, in nine high schools across Maine students will be putting on their best performances as part of the Maine Drama Festival. It’s a great opportunity to support students in the arts, specifically drama, and a wonderful chance to enrich your lives by viewing several short plays in one location. Not to mention, it’s Maine, it’s winter, it’s March – what a great way to spend a weekend!

Below shows you which schools are performing where and the order of the performances. If you click on the image you’ll be able to see it at a larger scale. In blue are the schools performing on Friday night and in salmon are the schools performing on Saturday.

Students are scored by three judges on all kinds of categories including by not limited to: Ensemble Acting, Set Design, Scenic Art, Set Construction, Lighting Design, Sound Design, Special Effects, Prop Design/Construction, Costume Design/Construction, Make-up, Choreography, Stage Combat, Overall Technical Excellence, Original Music by a Student, Student Direction, Student-Written Script. You can imagine after practicing for several weeks, hundreds of students are ready and excited!
