Presentation Rules

In the spirit of fairness, time limits for scene and monologue presentations are strictly enforced.

  • Monologue presentations shall be filmed using a single camera, without editing, though the final take may be freely chosen by the instructor. Ten monologues may be submitted by each school and each may be no longer than two minutes.

  • Scene presentations shall also be filmed using a single camera, without editing, and the final take may be freely chosen by the instructor. Only two scenes may be presented by each school and can be no longer than eight minutes each. Scenes may include up to 15 students.

  • Design presentations shall consist of a 10-minute presentation period during which participants may present a 3D model or drawing of a set, costume, lighting or make-up design for The Tempest. Participants should be prepared with a written portion of their presentation (does not need to be memorized) and be able to answer questions with clarity. Following their presentation, two judges will ask questions regarding the design.

  • Important: Focus your attention on the text of your scene, monologue, or play, rather than the "bells and whistles."
