One-Act Showcase Nomination

WHSFA is piloting a different approach to the showcase for the 2018. Instead of full-length productions/musicals, the WHSTF would select 4-5 one-act schools — selected from among WHSFA sections — to present their one-act during showcase time slots. During these times, no other one-acts would be scheduled, to optimize viewing of these shows.

Festivals in even-numbered years always have much larger turnout, so this would allow optimizing of scheduling, particularly on a smaller campus like Viterbo University.Use this form to 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. Once schools are selected, they will be asked about showcase scheduling preference, should they advance to the state festival with their one-act.
