Forms Explained


Use this as a roadmap to getting all the paperwork in on time and to the right person.


In order for students and adults to participate in festival, they must become a member of the NHETG. First, fill out the form, and then bring both the form and payment to your regional.


This form needs to be completed by every student attending festival. No student will be admitted to festival as a participant without a completed form, including the parent signature for permission to treat. There are no exceptions to this rule, so it is vital that this form get filled out. Directors may bring these forms with them on the day of the festival. Please have them alphabetized before submitting them to the registration table.


Get this form signed by your school principal and send it to the board member indicated on the form and/or the checklist. This indicates that you have secured the royalties, and your principal has approved the content of your show.


This form has been added to the Festival Registration Form. The link for the Registration Form will be emailed to participating directors after the January meeting.

The NHETG does not play the role of censor when it comes to content. (We, of course, ask that you do not perform content at festival that you would not be willing to perform at your school. ) Instead, the purpose of this form is simply meant to prepare any students for material that they may find disturbing. For example, your play may deal with the death of a character. If a student audience member has just suffered a loss of someone close to them, the teacher of that student, upon reading the notification, may elect to have that student sit out of the show.


This is a Google Form and an invitation will be emailed to participating directors. It provides the host with any necessary information about your students needs in the way of allergies, or other medical issues.


Your regional and state hosts will be creating a program for the festival audience. In order to do this, you as the participating school will need to create a program page and e-mail it to them. Below we have templates that you can adapt to your show, both for programs that are full sized 8.5" x 11" and programs that are the smaller 5.5" x 8.5" booklets. Download the appropriate file and edit with a word processor like MS Word. Google Docs does not allow for right justified dot leader tabs.
