? ? ?Doug Parker, KHS Theatre Director and host, is excited about the event but has hosted more than once. He encourages the public to attend. It is a free event but has rules that are strictly enforced. ?The participants have worked hard on their production and get one chance before one judge. The plays are closely timed and it means disqualification if the time limit is exceeded. Stages are designed for quick set-up and take-down and the stage crews are on a time schedule also. It must move like clockwork. Audience rules are also closely followed. The plays are not designed for small children. Electronic devices should be silenced turning the each play. Recording devices, cameras, food, and drink are not allowed inside the auditorium. The use of cameras or recording devices of any type is strictly forbidden and is a violation of international copyright law. And a big blunder is trying to come in late even by a minute. Latecomers will be seated only during the pause between shows. It may seem like a lot of rules but the way Mr. Parker feels, it is common courtesy and showing respect to the students on stage.
