will get a hard copy to sign before your first public
When I am scheduling a
show (other than a class party or recital),
please let me know if you have a previously
scheduled performance date within 2 weeks before or
after ours. This may affect whether you can
participate in my show.
If you're scheduled in
our show, please leave the 2 weeks before and after
the show date free of other performance and
rehearsal commitments. (Exceptions may be made if you're
performing the same number in both shows).
Allowing two weeks before a PRISM
show gives you at least that time for rehearing; and
two weeks afterwards gives you time to rehearse for
your other (non-PRISM) commitment.
The following guidelines apply to all
BEFORE THE SHOW:
Do not call Anthea on the
day of the show except for emergencies. Find out about costuming, makeup,
hair, performance details, etc. BEFORE the show
responsible for knowing the show location, how to
get there, and the location phone number or Anthea's
Soloists must turn in
their music when requested, by mp3, or on a new,
high-quality CD in a case, with no other music on
it; labeled with your name and the dance you're
doing. Also prepare a back-up copy and bring it with
you to the show.
If your Solo dance or
costume is not ready for Dress Rehearsal (if
called), or if you do not participate fully in the
D.R. (except through prior arrangement with me) you
will not be in the show.
Performers must arrive at
least 45 minutes before a performance.
Practice your dance
numbers before the show date, not backstage
at the show.
Please do not wear
costumes to or from a show or rehearsal unless
AT THE SHOW:
Please bring a cover-up
to wear over your costume if you need to go out of
the dressing room.
Please do not bring your
friends or family backstage or into the dressing
Underwear (bra and
panties) must be worn under all costumes.
If you're wearing a
borrowed costume, please use antiperspirant, and try
not to eat, drink, or smoke in costume.
Do NOT sew on or make any
permanent alterations to a borrowed costume.
No videotaping, unless by
prior arrangement with me.
AFTER THE SHOW:
Return all borrowed
costumes to me at the end of the show (unless by
prior arrangement with me) on the same hangers or in
the same bags if applicable. If you do take it home, please air
it out but DO NOT WASH IT.
Every performer helps to
set up and take down after each show.
