National Individual Events Showcase
The National Individual Events Showcase (NIES) is intended to be an educational program that offers Festival delegates whose troupes do not bring a show to Festival the opportunity (using the audition approach) to receive constructive feedback on prepared theatrical material and technical designs. The goal for participating students is to find their talents, strengths, and weaknesses and to grow as theatre artists. The auditions culminate in the selection of a performance showcase cast of outstanding entries.
Up to twelve selected participants will perform their selections on the main stage on Saturday morning, June 29th. Participants will also be selected from the technical events to participate in the showcase by having their designs prominently displayed in the theatre lobby. Outstanding films will be shown during the showcase.
Because the showcase will be cast with representatives of the highest quality performances, not all categories may be represented.
