Due:

DTASC Showcase Performance Date Preference  in Google Classroom

DTASC Showcase Performance Date Preference

Adults & students can all have a vote for their preferences on the date for the showcase. I will be emailing this out to your adults at home. As you know, most of the students in the Advanced Theatre Class will be competing in the DTASC festival this fall. The festival will be virtual due to COVID, and will be done by video submission (due by October 24th) with a virtual award ceremony on Sunday November 16th. My plan is to stay as true to the nature of theatre as possible and do a showcase performance by the students the week of October 19th-20th. I plan to use the recording of that performance/presentation for their submission to the festival, unless students ask to re-record. Please vote below on your preferred date and time for the showcase performance.

Due:

DTASC Script Research in Google Classroom

DTASC Script Research

Start digging through my treasure trove of scripts for some that stand out to you as a potential one to use for your DTASC category. They are separated by division and genre. I also included a link for finding Classical Monologues for those doing the Audition Monologue category!

(Technical Theatre & Musical Categories are the exception. Musical, you likely will pick something that is NOT in this folder, because rights are different for a musical number and we easily have access to purchasing music. So Sky is (almost) the limit! Start brainstorming some ideas for numbers you could perform with your amount of people. Technical Theatre, the production you base your projects off of can be in this folder or can be your own selection. If you need scripts purchased, you need to talk to me first!)

Be sure to fill out the attached Google Form, listing the TOP THREE (3) TEXTS (MONOLOGUES/SCENES/SONGS/PLAYS) you are interested in performing or creating your tech designs for at the DTASC festival. If you are competing in both technical theatre and performance categories, fill out the form twice, once for each category.

RESEARCH must be completed by CLASS time FRIDAY (Giving you the PAWS day to complete the task as well and am open TO YOU ALL if you need help sorting through texts). You should come to class ready to discuss your top selections. Google Form must be completed by the END of the day FRIDAY.
