Frequently Asked Questions
Who can be involved in One Song/How can I be involved in One Song?
One Song is open to any and all high school students in the local area. If you are interested in being involved, shoot us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also like us on Facebook for updates on upcoming One Song events, or talk to a member of our Board of Directors.
Is One Song completely student-run?
Yes. One Song is managed by a Board of Directors, made up of local high school students, and all of the production and acting roles for each show are filled by students.
Who determines the Board of Directors?
Each Board of Directors is determined by the previous Board. In the spring of each year, One Song takes applications for new Board members. Applicants fill out and submit written applications to the Board. If selected, applicants then have an interview. The Board then picks the applicants they feel are most suited for the next year's Board. Once on Board, you remain there until you graduate, or are voted off.
If I'm not on the Board, can I still be a part of One Song?
Yes! The Board of Directors is in charge of the general management of the company, but One Song is more than just the Board of Directors. We encourage company members who are interested to take up an active role in One Song. If you are interested in Stage Managing, Assistant Directing, designing the set or lights, helping with costumes, or anything else, let us know and we'll do our best to make it happen. We would also love to hear any ideas or suggestions you have for One Song as a company and community, so don't hesitate to give us (constructive) feedback.
What is the Summer Show?
Each Summer, One Song puts on one show directed by a non-board member. Anyone is welcome to apply. You do not need to have any previous One Song experience. The summer show is also open to college students, or other non-high school-aged people. All you need is a show, and a completed application.
What is the Feb 48?
Feb 48 is an annual one-act festival produced by One Song Productions. Feb 48 takes place over one weekend (48 hours) in February, during which time participants write, rehearse, and perform a series of one-act plays. Participating students are divided into groups, each containing a director, a stage manager, writers, and actors. All groups are then given a prompt, from which the writers create a script for their group. From there, the groups will rehearse until Sunday night, when the groups come together to perform their plays.
