Olle Owl Middle School Invitational

2022 — NSDA Campus, TX/US

Topics for Duet Improvisation and Impromptu Speaking

Performers should choose one topic and submit a recorded performance by 8:00 pm on Tuesday, February 22. To be fair, we will drop any entries in these events that do not submit a video by the 8:00 pm deadline. Do not wait until the last minute to submit your entries.

The time limit for both events is 5 minutes plus 30 seconds grace. Please make sure that each performer's video does not exceed 5 minutes and 30 seconds.

Students should not include their prep time in their recording. This recording will be used for all rounds of the tournament.
