After a cruel summer, we’re thrilled to present the 2023 Eras Tournament hosted at historic Little Rock Central High School October 27 and 28, 2023.

The Little Rock Classic Eras Tournament is a qualifier for the Arkansas State Championship and anticipates being a qualifier to the Tournament of Champions in Dramatic Interpretation, Humorous Interpretation, Duo Interpretation, Original Oratory, Informative Speaking, POI, Extemporaneous Speaking, Poetry, and Prose.

We cordially invite you to start your team’s season reputation off with a bang. We want this year’s Little Rock Classic to be so much fun, so we are offering some exciting opportunities to shimmer throughout the weekend, including Taylor Swift Dramatic Song Lyric Interpretation, an Eras Tour Costume Contest, a Tournament Bestie Bracelet making table, and lots of other fun surprises for you and your students throughout the weekend.

We will again offer pre-ordered meals in addition to live concessions and top-notch adult hospitality! Don’t miss your chance to get some Cornelia Street Tacos, Ever’Smores, This is Why We Can’t Have Nice Wings, and more!

Please read our tournament information carefully. Guests to our unique site are to adhere to all policies and expectations outlined in this document to ensure that we have a fun and equitable weekend.

We will again award the Khyree Allison Award for Debate Excellence presented to a senior debate competitor who actively participates in debate competition and who contributes to their program positively through mentorship and example. Please see the Allison Award tab for the nomination process.

To make a long story short, this year’s Little Rock Classic will be lots of lavender, lots of haze, and celebration of our activity and community. So get ready for it because it’s going to hit different.
