Speech, Drama & Mime

Rules

The provisional dates for this section are 28th February & 1st March.

Please check your programme for confirmation.

NOTE - Credit will be given for choice of repertoire, presentation, dress and deportment, including a bow at the end of the performance.  No Costume allowed, unless specified.

Again for 2018, in the solo speech classes, 4016 - 4036 only, competitors should be entered for the class appropriate to their school year. Please ensure that the child's date of birth is included in their details on the entry form.

For Own Choice pieces, suitability of content and language must be considered with regard to age group. The suitability of material is decided at the Adjudicator's discretion

and must not contain profane or offensive words. "Adult" or offensive material is not acceptable and Adjudicators are advised to take this into account when marking. They also have authority to stop any performance at their discretion. This would lead to automatic disqualification.

Several test pieces, as indicated, have been taken from anthologies which have been named in the syllabus in an abbreviated form. A copy of these test pieces will be available for inspection at the Hastings and Bexhill branches of the East Sussex County Library. All speech classes, including those for prose speaking, should be learnt.

The Hastings Festival has entered into an agreement with the Authors' Licensing and Collecting Society. This means that performers do not have to seek permission for any poetry, prose or solo dramatic items* performed to a time limit of 10 minutes.

Performers and teachers will be delighted to know that their participation in this festival means authors will be directly reimbursed as a consequence of their works being performed at this festival.

Duologues and group dramatic activity are not covered by this agreement and copyright for these items should be sought by performers at the time of entry.

*Dramatic Items must be announced with title and author at the time of performance to qualify for copyright indemnity, and the performer must not change the words or gender of the character.

All performers in group work must be within the age range.

All classes are for boys and girls, except where stated.

All performers are asked to bow at the conclusion of their piece.

The Stage is 10m wide and 4m deep. Tabs are situated 2/3rds from the front of the stage and should be operated by the entrant. Lighting is a basic wash.

There is no need, however, for players to feel onfined to the stage area, or necessarily behind the tabs when "off-stage"during a scene. Other areas of the Hall may also be used, such as the aisles and alcoves at the back. On request, it is possible to rearrange seating to modify the performance area(s), so that, for example, presentations could be made "in the round".
