GAPPS Standards: (A league official or their appointee can disqualify a play for a violation)

Recognizing that all we do should honor God, special care should be taken in all selections for content, language, characters, costumes, and gestures. Penalties may be incurred for violations at the discretion of the judges and GAPPS officials.

Specific areas of concern: 


  • No graphic or lewd gestures towards other actors and/or the audience. 
  • No profanity should be used at all during ANY performance. 
  • No vulgar humor ever, and  please watch/minimize “low humor”
  • Please be especially vigilant for dialogue that takes the Lord’s name in vain by using it in a flippant or exclamatory manner (ex. “Oh my God!”, “OMG!”). If such wording exists in the script you are using, please replace it with a more appropriate substitute. Directors, if you have scenes involving non-scripted/improvised reactions from performers, please work with them in your practices to make sure they are not using this type of language in their reactions. Any instances in a performance will, at minimum, result in a warning at the Region level and a penalty at the State level.


Please complete the cast list form and bring it with you to your Region competition.
