What you should come with:
- Stage clothing – you WILL be performing. It’s summer, so keep that in mind.
- Your induction prepared – for those students without an induction, we’ll provide one for you to memorize or have an experienced hypnotist to assist you on stage
- A pre-show monologue/talk. This is how you open the show. Again, we’ll provide a script to students needing one.
- If you have questions about your stage gear (microphone, MP3 or music player, small mixer, etc.) BRING IT WITH YOU! We’ll give you tech advice on how to make your stuff work with fairs.
- If you’d like your own video on your own camera, bring that with you as well (with your tripod)
