Please see Rhonda St. Romain in the Theatre Arts office between 12:30pm and 2pm on Friday to make a request for a change.  CHANGES ARE NOT GUARANTEED AND ARE ACCEPTED AT THE DISCRETION OF FESTIVAL STAFF.

Please do everything possible to minimize requests for changes.

  • Be sure your students do not have other plans that conflict with competition (SAT’s, Doctor appointments, etc.).
  • Help your students prepare the piece registered so title changes are not needed.
  • Proof your registration carefully to be sure every student is included and titles are correct.

If a change cannot be accommodated, students may perform for Evaluation only and receive feedback from the judges, but they will not be ranked for competition.
