From this document the lawyer's write, direct, and cross-examinations as well as opening and closing statements.

Students may also participate behind the scenes on set building, painting, design, operating lights and sound, costuming, hair, makeup, props, directing, stage managing, publicity, and playing in the orchestra.

    The One-Act Play is a unique theatre experience in that the show competes with other schools across the state. Rehearsals take place after school for six weeks and must follow a very specific set of rules for production. The show can be, at most, 35-minutes long and is disqualified from competition if it goes over. The set not only has to be transportable but must also fit into a 10'x10' square. Subsection competition is against five other schools and is critiqued by three judges who determine which three shows will advance to sections. The winner of the section tournament advances to state (the school that takes 2nd place at sections is the alternate for the state competition).
