One-Act Play

2024 One Act Play Showcase: Jan. 18, 2024 at Chaska High School (7pm)

Each year, Chanhassen High School offers students an intense experience for participation in the intimate experience of the one act play. A smaller cast and crew (due to rule limitations by the competition guidelines) means that students are more fully involved in the creation and technical aspects of the production. Entering both the MSHSL One-Act Play contest (beginning at the sub-section level and striving to advance to the State Festival) as well as the State Thespian Festival showcase, students in the one act are typically afforded a challenging theatrical journey investigating myriad dramatic genres, playwrights, and stylistic interpretations.

Join us at 7:00 pm on January 18 at Chaska High School for our annual District 112 One Act Play Showcase. This evening of theater includes performances by both Chanhassen High School and Chaska High School.

Shows done in the spring are open to all students, grades 9 through 12, and is the final production before the Spring Induction ceremony for the Thespian Society Troupe 7789. These plays offer students the opportunity to explore and refine their interest in the dramatic arts.

Thespian Troupe 7789

As part of the International Thespian Society, Chanhassen Troupe 7789 is an honors organization that offers students who are passionate about theater an opportunity to spend time with like-minded peers from across the state, country, and world. Besides activities throughout the year for fun and fundraising, the troupe attends the annual State Conference every January where students have two full days of workshops led by professionals from every discipline of the performing arts. Students can also participate in the Thespys (individual events competitions), competing not only for scholarships, but the opportunity to represent Minnesota at the International Festival in June. The ITF is a week-long theatre extravaganza that is non-stop drama, as well as non-stop fun! In past years, Chan students have achieved Superior ratings in both the Thespys and the One Act Play Showcase.
