Welcome to the Festival Main Stage Adjudication Training. It is required that all adjudicators go through regular training. Whether you are a veteran adjudicator or someone new to the process, thank you for investing your time to be part of this important service we provide our member schools and students. 

 In the first half of this course you will watch five training videos. After each of the first four there is a short quiz or discussion prompt.  You must complete each section to move on to the next portion of the training.  When you finish the 5th Video section of the training you will be asked to download an adjudication form and then view and score the first 40 minutes of a production of "She Stoops to Conquer".  You will submit your completed form to Theatre Educator Pro, using the upload function in the last section of the course. (If you cannot open a Microsoft Word document, download the .pdf version of this form from the handout tab).

To be an adjudicator, you need to have a strong knowledge of all the aspects involved with putting on a quality show. Adjudicators are expected to be knowledgeable about directing, acting and the technical aspects of a production. Being an adjudicator is an important and time-consuming job. You need to be able to commit the time to attend a show if judging in person, and the hours involved afterwards when you will be completing the adjudication form.

We thank you for your interest in being a show adjudicator. We could not do this without you.

If you have any questions, please email events@schooltheatre.org

 

Thanks,

Festival Main Stage Adjudication Committee

Make 1 discussion post to continue. In 25- 50 words, what are your initial observations and feedback after watching CHILDREN's HOUR? This is not intended to be a finished, flushed out comment response, but more along the lines of what you might say to a fellow adjudicator after just watching the show. These thoughts may address any of the adjudication categories, multiple categories or an overall observation. Click "Enter the Discussion" below to add a post.
