What started out as a simple, visual aid for students of “What To Wear” verses “What Not To Wear” to the 2015 Junior Theater Festival in Atlanta this January, led to a very fun day full of creative photo shoots and laughter between Parkway Playhouse Junior directors and students. This was the perfect way to wrap up an amazing year at Parkway Playhouse Junior before we took our annual holiday break.
We hope you enjoy these photos as much as we enjoyed taking them! ~Mary Katherine Smith-Gall (Director of Education)
Dos and Don’ts On What To Wear
Do wear all black pants, all black, flat, comfortable shoes, and either your production t-shirt (for adjudication) or your official Junior Theater Festival t-shirt (all times except adjudication).
Don’t wear a banana suit, your pajamas, a bathing suit, a sequined cowboy hat and boa, a silky red dress, a mini skirt with high heels, neon orange shorts… basically anything other than what is stated above in the Do Wear section.
Dos and Don’ts for Hair and Face
Dos and Don’ts On Being An Audience Member
Do sit properly in your seat, smile, laugh when appropriate, applaud at the end of the performance, and take the opportunity to learn from others and enjoy their performance.
Don’t take “selfies”, put on makeup, talk on the phone, give thumbs down, cross arms and glare at performers, sleep, or engage in any other rude behavior during performances.
Dos and Don’ts on Making New Friends
Do encourage others and tell them things you enjoyed from their performance and greet in an appropriate manner.
Don’t glare at new friends, show new friends how you pick your nose, or give new friends big sloppy kisses.
Dos and Don’ts for Reacting to the Adjudicators’ Feedback
Do listen carefully and learn as much as you can from their useful tips and advice.
Don’t throw a temper tantrum, cross your arms rudely and roll your eyes, take “selfies”, text your BFF, or engage in any other rude behavior.
Dos and Don’ts for Supporting Your Fellow Castmates
Do give high fives, warm hugs (with permission), thumbs up, and words of encouragement.
Don’t criticize or say things that may make them uncomfortable, leave them out of the group, or put them in headlocks.
We are SOOOOO excited for JTF ’15!
Thank you for another amazing year at Parkway Playhouse Junior! See you in 2015!
