Keep in mind that your storage space is limited.  Schools should arrive at least 30 minutes before scheduled rehearsal.  Give yourself travel time but if you arrive too early, you may have to wait on your bus awhile. Please note C&CR Section 1033 (c) (2) (E) internal communication system.  If you do not wish to use the house system, then you must declare your communication system as part of the basic set and allow all companies to use it.

Performance Order

Performance order was determined by blind draw.  A, B, C shows are determined alphabetically by show title, excluding articles.  Shows beginning with numbers are alphabetized by the first letter of the number word (3 = three, first letter T).  All shows run on the hour and start at 1:00 p.m.

  1. Area 1 C
  2. Area 2 B
  3. Area 2 C
  4. Area 1 B
  5. Area 1 A
  6. Area 2 A

Please tell your audiences to arrive early for your performance.

Admission is $5.

Companies wishing to record light cues must bring a flash drive. 

UIL Set

The UIL OAP unit set. Standard door and window unit is available but if you need a French door you will need to bring that with you.

Performance

The casts are reminded not to re-enter the auditorium in makeup or costume after the performance. Remind your students, too, that access to the auditorium while a play is in progress will be strictly limited. Finally, ask your students to be quiet in the hallways, in the lobby, and backstage because sound travels easily.

Awards and Critiques

The announcement of advancing plays, the presentation of awards, and the oral critique will follow the last performance as soon as the judges are ready.
