NSHS Spring Talent Show 2013

Talent-show-imageNSHS Theatre is working together with our Leadership class to put on our Spring Talent Show, scheduled to perform on Thursday, April 11th  @ 7:00 pm! If you are a performer who yearns for an audience, or a techie who wants to work backstage, here’s what you need to know:

Before the Big Show

  • Sign up in the Little Theatre [room 911] or in Leadership [845] and get your contract by Monday, April 8th.
  • This show performs on Thursday, April 11th from 7:00 – 10:00 pm in the large gym. Think: many, many fans.
  • You must attend the technical rehearsal* on, Wednesday, April 10th  from 6 – 8 pm. [Meet in the theatre.]
  • You must arrive by 5:30 on Thursday, April 11th on  the day of the show.

Performer FYI

  • Please know your act. If you aren’t performance-ready, we will ask you to come back next year. [Yes, we are doing this twice a year!] You want to be as polished as you possibly can be—we want you to be comfortable up there!
  • Since this is a family show, please make certain your show is age-appropriate. Rillingale has the final say on all acts.
  • Bring all materials you need to perform your act for both the technical rehearsal* as well as the show.
  • If you are performing to a song, please bring it to the theatre on a USB or a CD by Tuesday, April 9th.
  • Presale tickets for this event are $4 and will be available @ the Leadership room [845] and @ the Little Theatre [911] at lunch starting Tuesday, April 9th. Tickets at the door will be $5.

Your Big Night

  • When you arrive on Wednesday & Thursday, please sign in with your stage manager. If you don’t sign in, you don’t exist.
  • Your stage manager is Kaylie.  What she says goes. “Yes ma’am,” followed by her instruction is what you will need to do whenever she asks you to do something.
  • Your stage manager is the person who will make sure you look super onstage as she calls the cues and runs the show.
  • If you have questions or concerns, see your stage manager first and then Rillingale.
  • Please don’t bring valuables to the performance—we just can’t be responsible for them.
  • Once the house is open, i.e. the audience is seated in the large gym, you cannot go onstage in view of the audience.

Tech FYI

  • Please be sure to wear at least a black shirt, if not black pants and shoes. Techies always wear black—it’s a ninja thing.
  • Techies never run onstage. Techies saunter.
  • Techies solve all problems with style and low voices.
  • Performers respect techies. Techies respect actors.
  • Techies should have a mini-flashlight, access to spike and duct tape, and an adjustable wrench on them at all times.

*The purpose of our technical rehearsal is to set sound levels, establish the performance order of the show, and to make sure all performers are ready.

So what’s your act? What do you plan to do for the Spring Talent Show?
