SUPERIORS / GOING
('09), Andrew Garces ('08) & Karly Muzik ('09)
Acting, "The Tarantino Variation"
characters, outstanding comic timing, and smart scene composition made
this scene a judges' favorite! Plus, Andrew really had to pee.
They are the winners of our troupe's FIFTH Critics' Choice award in a
Design, "Real Women Have Curves"
Lauren won over
the judges with her sharp promotional ideas, focused presentation, and
strong sense of promotional appeal. Lauren's Publicity Design was
a finalist for the overall Technical Direction Critics' Choice award.
"Epic Proportions" & "Look Back in Anger"
straight Superiors from the judges, who found her monologues to be very
credible (high judge's praise!), hilarious, and very sharply contrasted
- highlighting an effective acting range.
"Only in New York" from "Thoroughly Modern Millie"
The judges had
strong marks for Miranda's performance, finding both a consistent vocal
performance and a believable character. Her warm and professional
performance is wonderful to watch!
('08) & Jessica Olarte ('08)
It's hard to
believe that Kelsey & Jessica hated this play at first - it's turned
into such a mature, subtle, and enjoyable piece. Two of the judges
had virtually nothing negative to say - and really liked the play's
creative staging and use of dramatic timing.
Chorus Line" & "Our Town"
liked Lauren's clear and vocally brilliant performances. They also
remarked on her "excellent natural quality" and strong levels of energy
EXCELLENT / GOING TO STATESNote : I am allowed to pick one, and only one, "Excellent" Tech event to advance to States. ADVANCING TO STATES / EXCELLENT Karly Muzik ('09) Costume Construction, "Steel Pier" While the judges may have been a little rough in their vocal feedback, on paper their feedback is laced with great compliments about Karly's sewing skill, great costume drawings, and attention to interior detail as well as the obvious exterior. With just a costume collage renovation, and a period silhouette alteration, I feel confident that this is a piece that can do very well at States.
|SUPERIORS We are only allowed to send 5 Superiors in Performance, 3 in Tech, as well as any declared District Representatives. These events earned the highest possible overall score of "Superior" but were not chosen to advance to States. To those of you who are not advancing, I am very, very sorry. You are to be congratulated on your great work.

You can go to States even if you didn't "advance" - and no matter what your score was. There will be fun workshops to go to, tons of events to see, and a great time to be had! Make sure you don't pass up this fantastic opportunity! If you are marked as "Going to States" and would like to accept this offer, you will be required to continue to work on your piece, and to attend regular workshops to address all of the judges' concerns, and to work on anything you might want to improve in your piece. The goal will be to shape yourself up for a Superior at States - which is much, much harder to come by. Be sure you are ready to put in the work before you say "Yes." I will hold you to your commitment!IMPORTANT! IMPORTANT! IMPORTANT! IMPORTANT! IMPORTANT!
