When: Monday, July 10th at 6:30 p.m.
Where: Jane B. Holmes Public Library in Helena, AL
Who: Persons from ages 7-21. Contestants will be grouped as follows: 7-10 year olds, 11-14 year olds, 15-21 year olds.
How: Come dressed as your favorite character from the hit movie, Napoleon Dynamite and be ready to perform a “skit”. Your skit MAY NOT BE LONGER THAN 30 SECONDS, and should be original/creative, depicting a situation that would fit into that character’s persona, but IS NOT a scene from the movie. For example: Do show Pedro being interested in Summer Wheatley, but don’t reproduce his “build her a cake or something” scene. Or, maybe have Uncle Rico living his life if his “time machine” actually worked and he “took State”.
PRE-REGISTRATION IS REQUIRED! Call 664-8308, or come by the library at 230 Tucker Road, Helena, AL. Registration closes on July 8th at 2:00 p.m. Please note…this event will be cancelled if there’s a lack of interest/registration. So, tell all your friends!
Contestants will be judged by the following criteria:
1. Costume/Physical Appearance (how closely you resemble your chosen character)
2. Live/Vocal Performance (how well you imitate your chosen character’s voice & mannerisms)
3. Skit Originality (something new and creative with your character).
In the event of a tie, contestants will perform his/her skit again, and the audience will select the winner by applause. The “Grand Prize” winner will be selected by the judges from the three age group winners. Judges’ scores/opinions are final with no do-overs or appeal. Good Luck!
Prizes: A surprise! Let’s just say, they’ll be Sweet! Yessssssssssssssss.
