State Drama Tournament
Adjudicator Mission Statement
Instruction is the primary focus of high school theatre participation. It is a learning process that encourages student involvement in all aspects of theatre. Students participating in the Wyoming theatre arts need to receive balanced criticism. Critiques should be honest, but also motivate the students to progress. Judges should deliver positive/constructive criticism that encourages high school students' continued involvement and growth in theatre. Judges' remarks should reflect possible solutions for students' choices that are deemed ineffective.

A NOTE FROM LCCC
As promised, here are the links to our new Facebook and twitter pages for communications from and about State Drama. Subscribe, follow, like, whatever you're supposed to do, and encourage your students to do the same.
All privacy settings are set to maximum. All language and content filters are set to maximum. As of now, I am the sole administrator of these pages. A student deputy of mine may be given admin privileges in the future. Nothing that shouldn't be on should get on, and if it does, it won't be there for long.
I do hope this a way to have two-way, open and real-time communication and information services. Check back to these sites regularly as they fill with content.
