One-Act Showcase Nomination

WHSFA is piloting a different approach to the showcase for the 2018. Instead of full-length productions/musicals, the WHSTF will select 5 one-act schools — selected from among WHSFA sections — to present their one-act Thursday evening. During these times, no other one-acts would be scheduled, to maximize viewing of these shows. Festivals in even-numbered years always have much larger turnout, so this would allow maximizing of scheduling, particularly on a smaller campus like Viterbo University. You may nominate your own school, or a colleague’s, to present during a showcase slot. Schools will be selected based on past performance and excellence as described in their nominations, with alternates identified, should selected schools not advance their one-acts to the State Festival.
