“Students will have the opportunity to work in all aspects of the production of a 40-minute play. During the production of the play they will be able to satisfy the competitive, artistic spirit with friendly rivalry among schools, emphasizing high quality performance in this creative art; to foster appreciation of good acting, good directing and good drama; to promote interest in that art form most readily usable in leisure time during adult life; to learn to lose or win graciously, accepting in good sportsmanship the judge's decision and criticism with a view to improve future productions; and to increase the number of schools that have adopted theatre arts as an academic subject in school curricula.” Retrieved from
