All Festival participants—including teachers and adult chaperones—are expected to stay the entire day at the theatre and to be a spirited audience for all performances. Each Festival day begins at about 8:00 a.m. and concludes at about 3:30 p.m.

This event lasts all day. We expect that for this one day, students will make other arrangements concerning jobs, rehearsals, sports practices, etc., in order to remain for the entire Festival. If this requirement proves impossible for any of your cast members, please indicate so on your registration form.

Each attendee should bring a bag lunch which does NOT require refrigeration. Water and soda (along with miscellaneous snacks) will be available for purchase at the Theatre. There is no time to leave the building for lunch.

After the awards ceremony, the commentators will offer critiques to interested casts. Commentaries are optional, and you don’t have to decide until the last moment if you would like the commentators to give your cast 5-10 minutes of concentrated feedback. Casts staying to hear their own critique will stay to hear the critiques of all—and the whole cast must stay.
