ONE ACT FESTIVAL
The OAF is an opportunity for new playwrights to showcase their work. Each spring, six original one-act plays are selected from submissions and then performed. Prizes are awarded to top judges’ choice as well as the audience favorite. The One Act Festival can also serve as an introduction to theatre for those new to acting or directing.
