Region 14 Drama
2019 — Delta High School, UT/US
Classical scenes from plays may involve 2 or 3 participants. The time limit for classical scenes from plays is 3 to 6 minutes. Classical scenes are to be taken from plays published prior to 1900. Adaptations published after 1900 will not qualify (for example, Jean Anouilh’s Antigone). Direct translations from the original text are allowed. Vaudeville, television or student written skits and sketches are not considered plays. Hand properties, costuming, etc. may be used but are not required. Scenic backgrounds and large props should not be used. Scenes must be memorized and full attention given to characterization with special emphasis on the interaction between characters. If any narration is used, it must be included in the time limit. If a piece of material is in question of meeting requirements, it must be brought to the classification representative for a ruling before the region meet. All Classical Scenes must provide a Source Submission (play title, author and publishing company) to the meet director (ie. Region or State Representative) before competing. This is to ensure that all scenes are from published plays.
