Best Scores ...
no Troupe 6172 Thespian has ever earned this
score in this event.
Mime Showcase (2001-2007) From 2001-07, only Critics' Choices at Districts advanced to States. These pantomimes were showcased at the Tampa Bay Performing Arts Center, but were not scored at the States level.
Best Scores ... Ever!
|Sponsor's #1 Advice I've seen a lot of Critics' Choices in Pantomime and they're more challenging than you think. If I had to pick ONE particular facet above the others it would be: musical accompaniment. Simply put, pantomimes without music just don't go to the Mime Showcase. Start with a concept, make a music choice - and then build your performance WITH the music. It sounds weird, but this is the closest Thespian competitions come to pure Dance. If you've had my class - use EVERYTHING we've learned. And come up with a story which can really only be told using mime - one where sound is not appropriate, as opposed to one where you're just 'playing charades.'||
"Don't EVER Put off making the Music
piece, it simply will not flow correctly. Never Ever Ever Ever make ANY
changes the Night before competition. The judges will pick out the slightest
errors with your sync to the music. Also have your list of scenes finished
before the music is, then go and make the music sync your script and BLAMMO
you will have at least an excellent- worthy piece."
-- Alex Reuille ('10) "Have music accompaniment. Rehearse, rehearse, rehearse! Have more of a concept than a story line. Time it. Energy! Exaggeration (so the concept is easily understood). Have music. Remember to bring a CD player to competitions for your music. Be prepared when it is your time to compete. Have music! Have CONFIDENCE!" -- Rabecca Delestowicz ('04) If you are a Thespian who has competed in this event, please send your advice to Mr. Gaudet to be included on this page!
