Each entry score is based on a maximum of 100 points.
The adjudicators will provide written comments about the performance and an onstage clinic. For groups and individuals that choose not to be ranked, we offer a “comments only and clinic only" option. The adjudication sheets will not reflect any numerical scoring.
1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th place will be awarded in each category and sub-category.
To be eligible for Sweepstakes, schools and academies must enter a minimum of three (3) categories. One of the required categories must be either the Ensemble or Musical Revue.
For Sweepstakes scoring, MTCA will use a school or academy’s top three averaged scores. Each Sweepstakes score is based on a maximum of 300 points.
See Director's Guide for all scoring details and additional awards.
Example: ABC School entered the following and scored:
Ensemble – judges’ averaged score of 92
Musical Revue – judges’ averaged score of 89
One Solo – judges’ averaged score of 75
One Set Design – judge’s score of 93
The top three scores (92+89+93) would be added together for a total score of 274.
