Stage and Lighting Requirements:
Stage:
Stage area should be clear of centralized items that restrict movement of performers, or that restrict
audience member's view of the stage area. This includes but is not limited to the presence of columns,
plants, speakers, banners, vending tables, children, small furry creatures, puppet shows, etc.
The stage should be elevated and should have minimum dimensions of 20 feet wide by 15 feet deep. The
performance area should be centered and as far down stage as possible.
Outdoor stages must be protected from the elements (e.g. must be covered in case of rain or direct hot sun).
There must be a private artist-only restroom located near the stage.
Lighting:
At a minimum the performance area should be well lit, with a general wash over the entire stage. A variety
of colored lights is strongly preferred. Should existing lighting be insufficient for event, lighting from a
third party should be rented.
