Open Stage Performances (Thursday-Sunday)

   


Thursday through Sunday

November 17-20, 2:00-3:00
Performances are in the Jawaahir Studio Sun Room. Free.

These four Open Stage performances are open to all who wish to perform (or watch), whether or not you participate in the Festival in any other way!

The performance slots are filled on a first-come basis. You will need to register in advance by emailing Angela. All performance slots are 5 minutes maximum. (There are still slots open.)

Show order is determined by our Stage Manager, who will assist you backstage and pick up any props you may leave behind. Be prepared with your CD and costume, and feel free to enjoy the rest of the show before and after your performance! We welcome all styles: soloists, duets, groups, and musicians! We have a large dressing area for women, with bathrooms and mirrors. Men have a small dressing space nearby.
