Event Description:

Programs should be manuscript-based literature united by author or theme, including at least two out of three genres (prose, poetry, and/or drama) substantially different in content, author, and/or original source. Performance must have at least two out of the three genres (prose, poetry, and drama). All pieces utilized must be mentioned in the introduction. The program should create a compelling performance centered around a theme or idea, using narrative, story, and/or characterization.

Allows for movement and exaggeration—often by popping or snapping quickly and simply between characters—to build complete scenes, as well as the assumption of more than one persona to establish interaction, relationships, and a full theme. Even if the piece is memorized, the competitor should occasionally reference the script as if reading.

Scripted; script can be used as a prop. Outside of grace period cannot be first.
