The cosplay plays give the opportunity to a group of people to present a more complex performance on stage. If you and 3-4 or more of your friends want to perform a play which is above 3 minutes of stage time, this is the place for you.
What are cosplay plays and how are they different from the group participations in the review?
You can participate in the review with a group of several people as well, but there the time is limited to 3 minutes maximum. There is no opportunity for more complicated performances with a lot of props and choreography. There is not enough time for a proper script as well.
That’s why we have the cosplay plays which provide up to 10 minutes of time for you to present your performance. The plays are good for scripts with a lot of acts, as well as lots of prop and longer stages. The plays are held separately from the review and will be performed on Sunday.
And here you can see a group performing a play - separately from the review.
You are 2, 3, 4 or more people and you want to perform together within 3 minutes time and your play is more simplistic, then you can stop reading right about now. You can apply for the cosplay review instead. The rules can be found here.
You are group of 3, 4 or more people that wants to participate with a more complex script, props and time up to 10 minutes : please continue reading!
