 SUPERIORS / GOING TO STATES
 
CRITICS' CHOICE / SUPERIOR
Lauren Bates ('09) & Rosie DeAngelo ('09)
Pantomime, "Acrophobia"
Fluid, balanced motion, good timing, strong facial expressions and a well-developed storyline earned Lauren and Rosie the Critics' Choice award in Pantomime.  They are also the only Pantomime act in two years to earn a "Superior" in District 14.
 
CRITICS' CHOICE/
DISTRICT REPRESENTATIVE SUPERIOR
Lauren Vanhelden ('09)
Playwriting, "Paper Butterfly"
Lauren's timely social piece had clearly defined characters and was described as "thorough, original and surprisingly informed while existing in its own world."  Lauren's play advances as a "District Representative" meaning it does not count against our limited Performance or Tech IE slot total.
 
CRITICS' CHOICE/
DISTRICT REPRESENTATIVE SUPERIOR
Mark Vicciardo ('09)
Playwriting, "This Ring"
Mark's authentic dialogue and believable story points made this bittersweet romance win over the judges' hearts.   Mark's play advances as a "District Representative" meaning it does not count against our limited Performance or Tech IE slot total.
 
SUPERIOR
Cara Dozier ('09) & Chanel Letourneau ('10)
Duet Acting, "The Next Mrs. Jacob Anderson"
This realistic drama earned "straight superiors" from each of the three judges who found strong character development, and declared it "a joy to watch."
 
Garry Cohen ('11) & Kasey Tanner ('11)
Duet Acting, "Beyond Therapy"
This absurdly overdramatic comedy earned "straight superiors" from each of the three judges, who loved Kasey and Garry's timing, energy, and teamwork.
 
Lindsay Hail ('10)
Monologues, "The American Dream" & "Ashes to Ashes"
Lindsay earned "straight superiors" from each of the three judges with her wildly contrasting monologues.  They loved her character choices, believability, and focus.
 
Lauren Bates ('09)
Publicity Design, "The Crucible"
Lauren's attention to detail, concept, and organizational skills and strong judges' praise earned her another shot at Publicity Design in tech theater competition at States this year.
 
Bradley Morris ('09) & Karly Muzik ('09)
Duet Acting, "Ferris Wheel"
Bradley and Karly were both very close to earning straight Superiors from the judges, and every one of their criteria were marked on the "Strong" side of their scoring sheets.  The judges fell in love with Karly and Bradley's on-stage chemistry and "great character, staging and blocking from the start to the end."
 

 EXCELLENT / GOING TO STATES

Note : I am allowed to pick one, and only one,
"Excellent" Tech event to advance to States.
 
ADVANCING TO STATES / EXCELLENT
Lauren Vanhelden ('09)
Costume Construction, "The Crucible"
The judges had only nice things to say about Lauren's costume concept, design, research and presentation, while mentioning some easily changed seaming and an attention to durability.  Our own Elizabeth Proctor will get another shot at building her costume at States this April.
 
 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.
 
PS - I am very frustrated that I can not send more Superiors to States;  truly you've all earned a shot at it.
