UIL One-Act Play Clinic

Sixteenth Annual U.I.L. One-Act Play Workshop/Clinic

 

One-Act Play Directors:

We are pleased to bring two of the most sought after clinicians in the state, Luis Munoz and Jim Mammarella!  Jim has judged State on numerous occasions, and Luis…well…he is the State Theatre Director of UIL!!  Both are highly sought after every year to respond at clinics throughout the State!  Please keep in mind: Jim is judging Reg. II 3A and Reg. II Area I 5A.  Please make sure you do not request Jim if you may see him in your competition schedule.

Once again, we have three options for you to choose at our One-Act Play Clinic. 

Option #1:

We are offering the same type of clinic that we have had in the past 16 years.  You would receive a critique from both a UIL Adjudicator from SJCC (Richard Turner, Brian Hamlin, or Jay Thomas, which ever you request) and an experienced Contest Manager (Curt Meyer or Jay Thomas).  This will take place on Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday, March 4, 5 or 6.  The setup is different than options #2 or #3:

  1. You will have 50 minutes for make up.
  2. You will have 50 minutes to load in and rehearse.
  3. You will have 50 minutes to set-up, perform, and strike.
  4. You will have a 50 minute critique from an adjudicator and a contest manager.
  5. The cost will be $250.

Option #2:

This option will offer a critique from Luis, Jim or Jerry Ivins, which ever you request, and will take place on Friday and Saturday, March 7 or 8.  Specifics:

  1. You will have 30 minutes to load into a holding room (note: this option does not have a rehearsal period)
  2. You will have one hour to bring your set to the stage, set-up, perform, and strike to your bus.
  3. You will have a 50 minute critique from one of these two professionals.
  4. The cost will be $300.

Option #3:

This option will offer a joint critique from Luis and either Jim or Jerry, and will take place on Thursday, Friday and Saturday, March 6, 7 or 8, but on a very limited basis.  Specifics:

  1. You will have 50 minutes to load in and rehearse. 
  2. You will have one hour to bring your set to the stage, set-up, perform, and strike to your bus.
  3. You will have a 50 minute critique from BOTH of these two professionals.
  4. The cost will be $600.

All of these options will take place right before the first zone contests may begin.  The date may fall on your Spring Break, but what better time to focus on One Act!  No other distractions.  The benefits of attending a workshop are obvious, but permit me to list a few:

  1. Allow new actors a chance to travel, perform and be evaluated in a   non-competitive environment.
  2. Receive suggestions for your play right before the actual One-Act Play competition takes place.
  3. Discuss possible elements of your play that may cause One-Act disqualification with an experienced Contest Manager.
  4. Perform on the stage that will host 5 Region III contests: 5A Areas (I, II, and III), Regional 5-A, and Regional 4-A.

Requests are already coming in, and this will fill-up quickly.  To secure your spot, you must pay by Oct. 18.  After this date, slots will be opened back up for other schools.  Use the enclosed invoice to send your check and reserve your spot.  If mailing, make sure all envelopes are addressed to “Attn: Dr. Jerry Ivins”, and sent to the invoice address, ONLY.  Hope to hear from you soon.
