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.
