Mechanics:
– First come, first serve. Registration starts at 7pm.
– A priority slot is equivalent to 1 performance, not a per-head count. 1 slot can be performed solo, in a duet or even three, four, or five.
– Songs + Scenes: A duration of 5 minutes is the maximum for each song. 3 minutes maximum time is given to monologues, dialogues and scenes, while 1 minute for scenes leading to a song. If the scene exceeds the maximum time, the performance will take up two slots.
– No Music Sheet, No Mic. This is not Glee. You can’t just say “hit it” and expect the pianist to know the song.
– If your song has been sang already, it’s still okay to sing the same song. In case you throw a fit because your song has been sung, bring extra sheets.
– Sing-All-You-Can! You won’t be paying for an additional slot to sing another song or two! All you need is get in the room and to the stage! Additional slot registration will be open at 10:30pm to give priority to those who have not taken the stage.
