|District XIV Competitions 2007 Troupe 6172|
competing against 14 schools in Pasco, Hernando, and Polk Counties
SUPERIORS / GOING
Wes Ford ('07)
& Stephen Hopkins ('07)
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!
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!
EXCELLENT / GOING TO STATESNote : 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. ADVANCING TO STATES / EXCELLENT 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.
