District One Acts is a competition where schools all over District 10 present one act plays to a panel of judges. The schools compete
for a rating of Poor, Fair, Good, Excellent, and hopefully Superior, and the judges pick two overall to compete at State competition later
in the year. Normally, students from the Advanced Drama participate in One Acts while other members of 2564 attend.
District Individual Events is a competition where students put together a piece such as a monologues, group musicals, or costume designs
where they are presented to judges for a rating of Poor, Fair, Good, Excellent, and hopefully superior. The judges pick the best of the day
for each event to be Critic's Choice, where the student or students are then eligible to be the district representative at State level (where
they will then perform at Opening Ceremonies in front of thousands!) We are allowed, normally, 6 events in each category at District level.
We choose five acting events and three tech events to compete at States later on.
The State Thespian Festival is a highlight of each year, and represents the pinnacle of theatre competition for our students.
In order to attend, students must go to both the District X One-Act and Individual Event festivals, and participate in at least
one of those. Students who compete in these local-level competitions and score well may be eligible to compete at the state level.
State Thespian Festival
March 20-24 in Tampa, Florida
States was an extremely fun an exciting experience this year. 2564 did exceptionally well with 5 excellents and 4 superiors. Eliana Meyerwitz won Critic's Choice for Student Direction with her scene from The Children's Hour. Congratulations to all of our outstanding thespians who performed at States this year, and the Florida State Thespians Team for putting on The Greatest Festival on Earth!

and States) It's a good idea to keep this one bookmarked. Click for specific event information and guidelines.
