ADDITIONAL SPEECH AND DRAMA CONDITIONS

1. The Stage Manager will be in complete charge of stage area.

2. Companies will be allowed 10 mins. for setting up their stage and 5 mins. for striking.

3. Groups will be responsible for the provision, safe keeping and removal of their own equipment, properties, costumes, etc.

4. Groups are urged to have their own stage manager, who will be responsible for all cues i.e. lighting, sound and curtain.

5. Groups are requested to use a group name NOT competitor names.

6. Scripture readings must be from the Revised Standard Version. Copies of selections will be forwarded to competitors. 

7. In “Own selection” recitations one poem only should be performed.

8. No music or sound effects to be used in mime solos.

9. Stage plan and lighting lists will be available and will be forwarded to competitors upon request.

10.  MULTIPLE SCHOOL ENTRIES. When entering competitors, teachers should always try to use the students’ names.  If this is not possible (as in Time Warp, groups etc.) teams should be named by school (e.g. SBSC) and a letter or name (e.g. A,B,C or dolphins).  The use of numbers causes confusion in the minds of students and volunteers as they do not correspond with the program numbers. 

11.  Original Poetry
   a) Competitor is not required to recite poem.
   b)  Competitors may only enter one poem in each class.
   c)  The subject matter to be own choice and the poem to consist of not more than 48 lines. 
   d) Poems must be on A4 paper and forwarded to the Committee by the 23rd August 2021.

12.  Time Warp/Space Jump. The first team member creates a scene for 30 seconds. A bell is rung and this actor freezes. The second team member enters and initiates a new scene. The two team members present this new scene for 30 seconds, when a second bell is rung. A third actor enters and another scene is performed for 30 seconds, when a third bell signals the actors to freeze. The last team member enters and all actors present another scene for 60 seconds duration, and freeze on the fourth bell. The fourth team member leaves the stage and the remaining three actors resume the scene for 30 seconds from the point at which they froze prior to the entry of the fourth actor. On the fifth bell the third actor exits and the remaining two actors resume their scene at its point of departure for 30 seconds, when a sixth bell rings, and the second actor leaves the stage. The remaining actor resumes the initial scene for 30 seconds and freezes when a bell indicates the conclusion of the performance.

13.  A copy of any set piece in speech classes will be supplied on application.

14.  Stage Door Registration.  Teachers are required to provide a list of all competitors to the stage door attendant on arrival. Competitors must sign in and out on this form each time they report backstage. The stage door attendant is in full control of all noise levels and movement in backstage area.

15.  All teachers must wear a badge clearly displaying their name and school to enable them free admission. All parent help will be required to purchase a ticket from the ticket box upon arrival.

16.  Props and Scenery.  Props are defined as an item used in a performance that competitors can bring on stage by THEMSELVES. Examples of these are a bunch of flowers, a teddy bear or basket etc. The STAGE MANAGER may place table and/or chairs on stage if required. Parents and teachers are not allowed to assist with any prop. All props must be removed from the venue immediately after use.

NO FREESTANDING SCENERY IS ALLOWED
