Special Notices:

  1. Please practice prepared items to fit within the time limit. The adjudicator has the right to deduct marks or stop the performance if it has run over the specified time.

  3. Please announce the title and author of any prepared item with the following exceptions: speeches; religious readings where you are required to state the book, chapter and verses; mimes, improvisations, monologues, and group dramas where the announcer will require information in order to give you an introduction.

d) Points will be awarded as follows: 70+ - Participation; 80+ - Eligible for Highly Commended; 85+ - Eligible for places.  An “adjudication only” will be given if a competitor requires multiple prompts or does not complete the performance.

  1. Please register at the venue before the beginning of the session you are performing in. A clear copy of prepared items should be submitted for adjudication. Be aware that photocopies will be destroyed.
  2. Any sets used in group dramas or monologues must be placed on the stage by the competitor/s and one other person only. Don’t forget to strike (clear away) your set at the end.
