Performers will present stories of high character and ethics, which includes but is not limited to:

-Sharing real and non-exaggerated accounts of stories of which they were an active participant.

-Treating all those involved in the story with respect and dignity; the unearthing of employment, friends and family secrets will not be accepted.

-Approach the genre of storytelling and the performance with integrity.

-Restraining from including material that violates the law or compromises an individual moral, personal and legal status. 

-Representing oneself as a responsible Dakota neighbor by including profanity or “mature audience only” material. 

-Being a good global citizen by refraining from marginalizing any individual regardless of their race, creed, economic background, nationality, sexual orientation or self-identified gender. Plains Spoken People has a Zero Tolerance Policy toward bullying, discrimination, and any type of harassment. 

 

 

2 Ways

1. Click on the icon below to record an abbreviated version of the story.  Please loud and clear! You have 2 minutes.

Or

2. Submit your synopsis in writing. You have 250 words!

 

We do not want an “idea” of what you are thinking; please submit the beginning – middle – end of the actual tale. Also, we want to hear your style and tone. Ask yourself these 2 questions: Why is this important to you?  Why will it be “a hit” with a South Dakota audience?  You have two minutes to cast, snag and reel us in!
