The Round Rock ISD Middle School Mock UIL One-Act Play Contest is a competition where schools present a 40 minute performance and are adjudicated by a UIL Theatre Adjudicator. The contest is held on a single day and open to the public and follows all guidelines for the University Interscholastic League (UIL).  This first year, we are running the contest as a Mock event and are not registered with UIL as an official event with recorded rankings. We divide our district into two zones with awards being given in each zone. Zone 1 conducted a contest in Festival format on Saturday, March 25, 2017 at C.D. Fulkes Middle School Auditorium.  The adjudicator awards individual acting awards as well as ranking each production presented.  Awards presented in each zone at the Contest include; Best Actor, Best Actress, All Star Cast, Honorable Mention All Star Cast and Outstanding Technician/All Star Crew Award.  After the awards are announced the Judge gives an oral critique to each of the schools. Because of the wide participation and diversity of plays produced certain guidelines and a UIL assessment rubric have been adopted by the district’s middle school theatre program. These guidelines are in place to ensure safety, allow for equity, satisfy legal standards, and make the running of the contest practical.
