District XIV Competitions 2007
Troupe 6172

competing against 14 schools in Pasco, Hernando, and Polk Counties

Wes Ford ('07) & Stephen Hopkins ('07)
Duet Acting, "Zoo Story"
Wes and Stephen took a very challenging play with serious, adult themes and made it work through strong character commitment and solid motivation work.  They are our troupe's second Duet Acting Critics' Choice in a row!
Irene Mincuzzi ('08)
Publicity Design, "Titus Andronicus"
Irene used a unified theme, solid research, and a variety of approaches to marketing a Shakespeare play to High School students.  This may also mark the first time a poster using the thematic selling point of "Cannibalism" made it to the top!


Note : I am allowed to pick one, and only one,
Excellent to advance to States.
We were bewildered to find quite a few scenes earned an Excellent score instead of a Superior.  There were some events where the judges simply judged there were NO SUPERIORS at all, by ANY troupe.
Kelsey Loynaz ('08) & Jessica Olarte ('08)
Duet Acting, "Anything For You"
The judges loved the comedy, timing, and clear characters of this scene, and left simple things to clean up, like: "wait a second at the end of the scene"; "avoid over-articulating" (too much diction!!); and "project in the most quiet moments."  I am confident that we will be able to address these issues easily, and have a successful scene at States.
