Every Fall we do a play! We try to get as many students who audition into the production as possible. We also need students to be on the costume crew, set building crew, props crew, Stage Managers, Make up crew, possible running crew, and booth crew for sound and lighting. The technical end of the shows is student-run.

Centennial High School One-Act

DSC_2786

One-Act is in December/January and possibly into February of the school year and is a 30-minute play that students rehearse and perform.

They travel to perform with other schools at competitions where judge's evaluations determine if they will move on to the next competition. If they don’t, then the season ends there.

Weekly advancement at the competition can go through the second week of February if they make it all the way to the state tournament.

High School Speech

The speech team at the high school is not part of the theatre program and operates independently from the theatre program.

However; the speech and theatre programs are very supportive and encouraging of each other and work together to make sure any student conflicts with theatre and speech are accommodated.
