Young Artist Showcase deadlines soon

(Continued)

Instead of judges traveling to various recitals, the format has changed. “This year I have asked the dancers to prepare an individual dance to perform in front of the judges.” Each entrant will be assigned a time after completing the application.

“We have a great local pool of qualified judges,” according to the coordinator. Info: prattbonnie@hotmail.com.

Drama

Students who are in school plays or a summer Prairie Fire Children’s Theatre production are automatically eligible for judging and do not need to sign up for evaluation. “A student can win only one award per school year,” notes coordinator Lois Schrott.

Awards are given based on the average number of points received from both judges. “This is not like the Oscars where someone always wins a Best Actor trophy. Sometimes no one receives a trophy in a given play.” Students who are judged should “be prepared for constructive criticism, which is given to help you improve your acting skills.”

The dozen or so judges come from Batesville, Greensburg, Columbus, Aurora and Cincinnati, and have a wide variety of expertise: “Some have directed shows for high schools in other areas. Some have experience directing or acting in community theater groups. Some have a major or minor in theater from their college years. Others are professional theater folks.” Schrott welcomes more names of qualified judges: schrlo@yahoo.com or 812-689-5494.

Music

The signup deadline is March 14. There are four categories: vocal, piano, instrumental and original composition. Students may enter more than one category.

Joann Call, who co-coordinates music honors with Kathy Fangman, advises entrants, “Please be serious in your rehearsal for this performance. Come well prepared. If possible, it is best to have a live accompanist.”

The April 23-24 judging will take place at each school. “All of our judges are professional musicians and/or music teachers. Most of them come from the Musical Arts Center in Cincinnati.” She reports, “The past few years we have had so many vocal entrants that we have hired separate judges for the middle and high school divisions. It is a challenge to create a schedule that rotates the various judges from school to school throughout the day, and works around the schedules of the students, music teachers and accompanists.”
