HOSTS

Looking to book a show? Contact Show Director Matt Finken.

Our production team is here to help with your upcoming show! To help you plan a flawless production, follow these guidelines:

  • 10-15 Performers:
    Shows must be kept under 2 hours in length. Saturday shows have 24 slots in the line-up (including raffles/auctions). Sunday shows have 30 slots. 

  • Promotion: 
    We will create the promotional graphics for your show. Please send t
    he title/theme of your show to Marketing Director Shannon Barry through Facebook Messenger. We like to post the Facebook event on our page at least 6 weeks prior to the show date.

  • Set Design:
    It’s never too early to start planning your set! The Max has a selection of Mylar in various colors available for use in your set design, but also be thinking about what props or table decorations you can incorporate. I
    t is your responsibility to create and install the design during rehearsal the day of show (Noon to 1PM). A spectacular and creative design sets the stage for what the audience can expect. Really try to create a theater-quality design that draws on the theme and makes the audience realize they are about to see a spectacular show: suspend props above the stage or set them around the steps, drape Mylar in interesting configurations, decorate tabletops – the possibilities are endless. If you need help with ideas, Show Director Matt Finken is available for consultation (tips are appreciated).
