Information for Prospective performers
Due to limited time and popularity the Stage Manager cannot guarantee a slot to all aspiring open stage performers so it is best to arrive well before a concert starts to be in the running for a slot. The Stage Manager may give preference to acts that did not appear the previous month. Time is limited to 8 minutes total stage time and all performances are un-plugged, that is no mics or amps. Acts pay normal admission and need to have good audience rapport and ability in order to add value to a concert.
If a support act is scheduled they are generally allocated 25 minutes. Supports acts are paid a set fee and we can help sell your CDs and promote your act.
