Greetings and welcome! We thank you for being a part of our performing family. Please read through everything presented here, and if you have questions, do not hesitate to ask.
You will receive a group message via Facebook the weekend before the show that will include the names of your stage crew and any updates on the show. Please keep up with us on Facebook and Instagram, and tag the show in your photos and updates!
122 N Locust, Denton
Please be aware that this is a non-smoking venue.
Glitterbomb is an anti-racist, anti-sexist, anti-transphobic queer show. While we do allow raunchy, boundary-pushing, outlandish performances that critique and poke fun at social issues, we do not allow expression of oppressive themes or cultural appropriation. If you are not sure if your act would be a fit for our stage, please don’t hesitate to talk with the producer.
- Music must be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org in MP3 format by noon on the Tuesday before your show. Do NOT send a link to a song – we do not stream music online during shows.
- Headshot/photos should be uploaded to our Performer Photo File. You should have a folder already, but if you don’t, please make one for yourself.
- Please include the show theme, and your performer name in the subject line and specify requests for sound cues and order of songs if you’re doing more than one act.
- Do not bring music on CD!
- During the week leading up to the performance, you are required to post a photo with a teaser of your act(s) in the glitterbombdenton facebook group.
- You are required to promote the show through your own Facebook page, Instagram, or other social media platform(s).
Show Day Requirements
- Call time is 9 pm. Please be sure you’ve signed in with the stage manager NO LATER THAN 9:15. When you do, please note the exact time you’re signing in, not your arrival time.
- You will receive a drink ticket when you sign in. If you sign in later than 9:15 (even if you’re in the venue) you will not get a drink ticket. Please be sure you tip your bartender when you use your drink ticket.
- Meet with your stage manager to go over your setup and breakdown.
- Meet with your host to discuss your intro and content warnings.
- The show will start at 10:15 and curtain call is at midnight. You are required to be present throughout the whole show, and be in the cast photo at the end.
- Visit the production booth after the cast photo to sign for your payout and specify which method of payment you want. Payment methods are: paypal, venmo, or check.
- After the show, please interact with the audience, take selfies, etc. It really helps to build our community and ensures that they’ll come back in the future.
- Keep an eye out for audience members with a silver star sticker – those are first timers, so please welcome them and thank them for coming.
- The stage is 3’3″ high and is carpeted.
- You cannot leave the stage into the audience (there are no stairs).
- When you enter from the dressing room, please be sure someone closes the curtain behind you.
- Absolutely no liquid pours or liquid mess on the stage. If you have some other type of mess (confetti, cake, etc.) you must have prior approval and provide your own tarp if necessary.
- Absolutely no loose glitter. Confetti is fine if it can be reasonably cleaned up.
- Absolutely no fire. As much as we would love to have fire performers, we are under very strict instructions from the venue (due to legal/insurance issues) and cannot have fire on our stage.
- If you have extras in your act, make sure you get approval from the producer prior to the show.
- When you exit, do not pick up your belongings. The stage crew will bring your tips and stripper droppings to you backstage.
Dressing Room Requirements
- The dressing room is TINY so please only be in there if you need to be.
- Bring a robe or something to wear when you’re walking around so you don’t reveal your costume prior to your number.
- Cast and crew ONLY!! If you have an extra, please discuss their dressing room needs with the producer prior to show night. Due to the smaller dressing room at our new venue, we will be enforcing this very firmly.
- Please be mindful of how much space you are taking up. Do not bring large bags or containers. Keep your belongings contained and share counters and mirrors.
- Please be quiet while backstage.
- Please limit aerosol sprays while backstage.
- The dressing room area must be clean when you leave. Take all of your trash with you, and take glassware outside the dressing area.
- Props and costumes left behind after the show cannot be protected and may be thrown away by the bar.
- Please take your tips to the bar and trade them in for larger bills. This allows more people to get ones, so they can tip you again! Everyone makes more money when you trade in your tips!
