Acting Competition Team

Fridays 5:15-5:45 pm

 

This time is set aside to work on competition acting scenes. Any student enrolled in an acting class is eligible to compete in an acting scene during the competition season. Students may compete in the following categories:

  • Monologue (one actor)

  • Duet/Trio (two or three actors)

  • Ensemble (four or more actors)

Once the competing groups are determined, we will develop a rotating rehearsal schedule for each Friday session to prepare for the competitions. Actors will be informed in advance of rehearsal sessions. There is no cost for this session. The only obligation is committing to attending all acting competitions, adhering to the performance and rehearsal schedule, and paying for any necessary props and costumes.
