About the Competition

Description of the Competition

The ‘Stories on Stage’ Drama Competition is open to secondary schools in Hong Kong adopting the CDC English Language Education Key Learning Area Curriculum Guide (Primary 1 – Secondary 6) (2017).

The competition has two parts:

  • script writing (adapted from a short story)
  • drama (performed on stage)

The short stories selected for the competition cover a range of genres and themes. Schools may opt for a short story in the school-based curriculum on the condition that it meets the requirements for the competition, e.g. the short story must be fictional, age-appropriate, adaptable for a staged performance, and should have at least three characters.

Schools may enter up to two teams in the competition. Each team must have three to eight students and must submit a separate entry form. The two teams can adapt the same short story or different short stories.

Student Roles

Each team must have writers and actors. The numbers of writers and actors and their roles are defined as follows:

  • Writers: Two to four students in the team will collaborate on writing a drama script based on the short story selected for the competition.
  • Actors: Three to eight students will perform the story on stage on the day of the competition. (Writers may also be actors.)

Note: The total number of team members must not exceed eight.
