*Please note that we will select Finalists AND Semi-Finalists at Prelims. Semi-Final students will be ineligible to compete for the NY trip, but will rehearse and perform a montage of their monologues during Finals on 2/28. There will be two four-hour Saturday rehearsals for semi-finalists between 1/27-2/23. All semi-finalists will be required to attend both rehearsals. Failure to attend will result in their inability to participate in the competition. Specific dates for these rehearsals have yet to be decided, but likely to be based on student availability.

**Please note that for prelims, students won’t be needed the whole time. They will be assigned a time slot between noon-6pm on either 1/19 OR 1/20. We do our best to accommodate the preferences of each student, but cannot guarantee that every student will get their desired day and time slot.

***Finals: 2/28 3:30pm-10pm
Competition begins at 7:30pm. Finalists are expected to arrive between 3:30-4pm. Winners will be announced at the end of the program (around 10pm).
