Contest One-Act Venues

Assignment of space is based on: (a). scenery needs and (b). size of cast/crew. We only have so many time slots available in the various spaces, so schools should have the flexibility to assemble scenery on stage for smaller venues.

During your homeroom/prep time, a UWW liaison will meet with you to discuss specific needs. Be prepared at this time to start the cueing process to utilize staff and equipment to the fullest, but do not go to the control booth prior to your set up time since another school will be using the booth. Your liaison will ensure you get to stage and will be on-hand to answer all questions pertaining to technical needs during your set-up time.
