Competition Changes

I just got word from the State Thespian Board that there are some significant changes coming up to competitions.

  • the States registration fee will increase to $130/person next year. It will be frozen at that level for the next two years.

  • each troupe used to be able to bring up to 3 Performance Superiors and 5 Tech Superiors to States. That rule has been reduced to 6 Superiors per troupe (of any combination of Tech/Performance). This makes advancing to States more competitive than ever!

  • all Tech events have been reduced from 15 minutes to 10 minutes each. No word on how that time will be broken down yet in terms of presentation/feedback.

  • the Ensemble Acting event has been reduced from 8 minutes to 5 minutes.

  • the Group Musical event has been reduced from 8 minutes to 5 minutes.

  • the Monologue event has been reduced from 5 minutes to 3 minutes. This is a big change! It was changed to make it meet the industry standard of monologue auditions of 1-1/2 minutes apiece.

We'll discuss all of these changes at our first Thespian homeroom meeting next week!
