Funny v. Serious
Okay, so, my group and I are doing a serious skit, and we want to know how judges will react to it. On one hand, it'll be unexpected, since very few people do serious skits, so that could help us stand out from everyone else, but on the other hand, since they're expecting funny, I'm worried that coming in with something serious, especially since it's Hetalia and historically based (I did do copious amounts of research about the time period we're covering, the summer before the fall of the Berlin wall), we might stand out to the judges, but not in a good way. Opinions? Suggestions?
For this specific skit, what we're doing is a dance fight scene thing that I choreographed to Russia's character song, Winter. The skit starts with Hungary and Prussia running away, then Russia coming up from behind and kidnapping Prussia. The MC script is "The year is 1989, the summer before the fall of the Berlin wall. Like many of her citizens, Prussia has been trying to escape to Austria through Hungary. However, Russia hates to share his toys. He will kill this border off to Prussia as well, even of she must loose her life in the process. The Pasta Republic presents "Zima-Winter."
