RULES OF FULL-LENGTH PLAY FESTIVAL (cont.)
The Adjudicator’s decisions in respect of marks and awards will be final.
In the event of a performance being cancelled, withdrawn or postponed, two-thirds of the Adjudicator’s fee will be payable by the society concerned, unless 28 days’ notice has been given to the Festival Organiser. Entry fees are normally non-refundable.
8 Each competing society must forward one copy of their entry, in the version to be performed, directly to the Adjudicator no less than three weeks before the date of performance.
9 The awards to be presented are listed at the appendix to these Rules. These remain the property of Bromley Theatre Guild and must be returned to the Festival Organiser before the commencement of the following years’ Festival.
The winners of individual awards will each be presented with a certificate and a replica trophy or shield. Certificates will also be presented to two runners-up for each individual award.
10 The Adjudicators’ contact details will be provided to each competing society, who should make arrangements directly with the adjudicator for travel directions, reception and provision of refreshment if required.
The adjudicator must be provided with a small table and reading light for use during the performance, with an unrestricted central view of the stage.
An officer of the Bromley Theatre Guild will attend each adjudicated performance and two seats should be made available, adjacent or close to the Adjudicator’s seat, for his or her use.
Societies should include in their programme the fact that the play is entered in the Bromley Theatre Guild Full-length Play Festival and the Adjudicator’s name and qualifications.
11 Applications for an adjudication date, whether the play has been decided upon or not, should be made to the Festival Organiser as early as possible, but in any case not later than the 31st January.
12 No alteration or amendment to these Rules may be made except at a General Meeting of the Bromley Theatre Guild.
