Event Description:

Using a combination of Prose, Poetry, and Drama, students construct a program using at least two out of the three genres.  With a spotlight on argumentation and performative range, Program Oral Interpretation focuses on a student’s ability to combine multiple genres of literature centered around a single theme.  Competitors are expected to portray multiple characters.  No props or costumes may be used except for the manuscript.  Performances also include an introduction written by the student to contextualize the performance and state the titles and authors used in the program. Time limit: ten minute maximum with 30 second grace period
