•Think about your strengths as a performer. How are you going to create the Wow Factor? Will it be on the strength of your delivery? the performance you give? the costume you select? the props you either use or artfully display? the level of preparation you put int? or some combination of all of these? 

•Get feedback from friends and colleagues in this class and elsewhere. It’s always good to hear what other people have to say about a piece of writing or a performance of some kind.
