The Individual Events are intended to be an educational program that offers Conference delegates the opportunity to receive constructive feedback on prepared theatrical material. The goal for participating students is to find their talent, strengths, and weaknesses and to grow as a theatre artist.
In order to participate in the Individual Events each entrant must:
IE registration will be accepted online on a first-come, first-served basis until November 22nd. Names of performance pieces must be included as part of the registration process. Incomplete applications will not be accepted until all requirements are met. Incomplete applications include:
PLEASE NOTE: The entire Festival registration will be held up for processing due to incomplete Individual Events applications. If all the above information has not been provided by November 3rd, the IE registration is considered VOID and NO REFUND WILL BE PROVIDED.
All categories are also national categories. Students who receive a superior rating at state level will be eligible to compete at Festival. All superior ratings may also be asked to perform/display their entry at Missouri Arts Education Day in Jefferson City.
*The State of Missouri will allow an entrant in Costume Construction to construct any costume of his or her choosing for rating at the state level. However, if the student wishes to enter the Costume Construction IE for the National Conference, he or she MUST FOLLOW THE NATIONAL GUIDELINES for the Missouri conference IEs. The National Guidelines give specific patterns from which to choose. If you have any questions about this rule, please email Theresa Nigus at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Individual Events Scheduling:
1. Delegates may attend any Individual Event session as audience members. Seats will be available on a first come, first-served basis. Audience members MUST remain in the room the entire workshop session. Audience members are required to remain quiet throughout the session out of respect for the performers and judges.
2. The performance areas will be classroom venues, not stages, and may be carpeted.
3. Any musical category performers MUST bring music on a CD. Ipods or other MP3 players are acceptable for the IE, but if your performance is chosen for the IE Showcase, you MUST have a CD.
