  1. There isn't a link for makeup design nor sound guidelines.

  2. Thaaaaaaaaaannnk you for this blog! With the FLThespian website down, I've had to direct all my adjudicators to your page for the rules and critique sheets. (Where's Makeup, though???)

    1. You're welcome :). I've added Makeup and Sound. Please note that most of these rule sheets are SUPER old (like 2010 old), and adjustments may have been made since then.
