GRADE 8 STUDENTS PERFORMED ONE-ACT PLAY ON JULIUS CAESAR
A one- act play is a play that has only one act as distinct from plays that occur over several acts.
One act play may consist of one or more scenes. In recent years the 10-minute play has emerged as a popular subgenre of the one-act play.
One-act plays were written and staged throughout the 18th and 19th centuries as “The Curtain Raises” or “The After Pieces”.
Grade 8 students performed one-act play on Julius Caesar chapter from their Literature Reader course book. As one-act play requires no elaborate setting and costumes to be staged in school, students practiced the dialogue and intonation and performed confidently.
One-act play helped to improve students’ public speaking as talking and performing in front of audiences. The students were put in a team environment when everyone mattered and had a part. It helped them to build a teamwork mentally. They participated actively and enjoyed the activity.
