Fourteenth Annual Theaterfest: Thursday, April 20, 2017
Valparaiso University German faculty and students invite you to participate in the Fourteenth Annual Theaterfest, where your students can showcase their theatrical and German skills, meet German students from other high schools, and have a glimpse into what university-level German students are like.
Awards will be given in two categories (assuming there are entries in both categories): intermediate students (German II - III) and advanced students (German IV - V).
When: Thursday, April 20, 2017, 9 am - 1 pm (arrival beginning at 8:15 am; event starts at 9:00 am)
What: Drama competition: 10 - 15 minute dramatic scenes memorized and presented in German. Scenes might be adaptations or excerpts from well-known plays in the German repertoire, short plays written specifically for language learners, or even original works composed by the students and / or instructor.
Where: Valparaiso University: in the Center for the Arts. [NOTE: This year we will likely be on the main stage.]
Who: High School students of German from northwest Indiana schools. One school may enter up to three performances in the competition.
Why: Let's show our students that they aren't alone in their study and use of German. There is a whole community learning and using German every day! This event addresses all five "Cs" and all of the standards!
