  • Welcome to the Houston ISD OAP Website

    The purposes of the One-Act Play contest are to foster an appreciation of good theatre, satisfy the competitive, artistic spirit with friendly rivalry among schools, learn to lose or win graciously, promote interest in theatre during adult life and increase the number of schools which have adopted theatre arts as an academic subject in school curricula.

    Each school performs a short play. The plays are adjudicated and advancing schools are announced and individual awards are given. Schools receive an evaluation form and an oral critique.

    Inquiry regarding dates, location and program specific information should be directed to our office.
