We had mixed results from the competition on Saturday, December 15, 2007. I'm proud of each of you for competing and for the progress you've made. Sometimes, though, other student competitors are also making progress, so your standings don't improve and even sink.

Here's how we did:

Mime: Jimmy & Victor--1st place
Solo Musical: Anna--1st place; Mariel--3rd place
Duet acting: Anna & Mariel--3rd place.

I have your ribbons, but haven't yet received the written evaluations. We can review those when I get them, and use them to do better next time.

Victor and Mariel have each crossed over the threshold line for being a Thespian (10 troupe points). Yay! Jimmy is making progress (and gets another point for watching SCROOGE!). With participation in the final two competitions, I think the goal will be reached and all of you will be inducted into the Junior Thespian troupe (a prerequisite for attending the ITS Festival in Lincoln, if you win at the competitions).

NEXT COMPETITION: February 2, 2008 at 1:30 PM at MHS.

37. Next Thespian Competition & other news

The next Thespian Competition is set for 12/15/2007 at 1:30 PM at MHS, room D 101. Each of you should be rehearsing your competition piece(s). I'll try to schedule a meeting this week for a practice session.

In the meantime, try to come see SCROOGE, the musical. You will get one troupe point just for watching. If you want to do this cheaply, I can get you Thespian tickets for just $7.00. These are "standing room" only, and seats if the production is not sold out. You will get the dessert selection, which is what the ticket pays for!

SCROOGE is on stage each evening Tues.-Thursday 12/11--12/13 at 7 PM at P.I.C., and on Sunday 12/16 at 3 PM.

If you want the cheapest way to see the show, and help out as well, you can come to a charity production of SCROOGE on Friday 12/14 at KAGMAN Community Center, 7 PM. Cost is a canned food donation which will be given to Karidat.

Congratulations to all of the middle school student thespians who joined the MCS Theatre Club's production of THE NIGHTMARE BEFORE CHRISTMAS

I managed to get a few photos when you were on stage. My apologies that these aren't great. My apologies especially to Victoria and Lourence, because my photos of you didn't come out at all, and all I have are a few of the group shots.

You can see more photos of the entire production on my personal blog Saipanwriter.
