One-Act Play Workshops

April 13th, 2024

9AM - 4PM | Open to students, performers, and the general public this year!

Our Second Annual Southern Colorado One-Act Competition is set to take place on April 13th, 2024! Along with the competition and performances, this year we will also be offering theater workshops open to students, performers, and the general public for $10! Curriculum levels are geared toward high school ages. Tickets for non-performers to watch the performances are also available for $5 at the door and gains you admission to all 8 performances for the day (you may exit and re-enter). 

The purpose of the Southern Colorado One-Act Competition is to foster appreciation of good theatre, satisfy the competitive, artistic spirit with friendly rivalry among schools, and allow students to learn to lose or win graciously. Our intention is to raise the quality of theater for High School students throughout Southern Colorado. We also recognize that this type of exposure can increase the appreciation of theater in our students' lives. 

This event will be held in the Arts Center Theater and the Jackson Conference Center on April 13th. Schools who are performing and also paid the additional workshop fee, can enroll their students here at no extra cost using a promo code provided to you by Rosina Sonntag or the Arts Center. Participants, both performing and non-performing, are welcome to enroll in 2 workshops in the block of time opposite to their competition time. If you need help enrolling your students, please reach out to us at ashton@sdc-arts.org.
