ONE ACT 

One Act is a competitive event for high schools across Wisconsin.  Each participating school must prepare and present a fully-staged play of no longer than 40 minutes.  The plays are presented at District and Sectional competitions.  Those who the judges advance to the final level are invited to take part in the Wisconsin High School Theatre Festival held at a UW university each year in November.  During the two-day competition, each qualifying school then performs for a panel of three judges who decide on the quality of the production and whether any extra honors will be awarded.

North Theatre has been awarded the top honor of Critic’s Choice at the Wisconsin High School Theatre Festival every year since 1999, the only school to accomplish such a feat in the history of the festival.
