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!
Mable Peabody’s Beauty Parlor and Chainsaw Repair
1125 E University Dr, Denton, TX 76209
Please be aware that this is a 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.
- 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.
- There is no CD player in the venue, so do not bring one!
- 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’ll have a silly pop quiz question about this performer agreement (for example, we might say “what’s the rule about smoking in the dressing room?” or “what should you do with your tips?”).
- 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.
- Payout will happen after the cast photo.
- 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 approximately one foot off the floor, and has a mirror wall behind it.
- You can step into the audience for interactions, but please use the stage as your primary performance space.
- Keep floor work to a minimum to ensure people in the back can see.
- If you need a chair or stool for your act, please bring your own, or contact the stage manager to discuss options if you are traveling. We cannot promise a safe performance chair will be available.
- If you enter from the dressing room, please be sure someone closes the curtain behind you.
- Do not enter or exit through the curtain while someone is onstage.
- If you plan to enter from the sides or back, please notify the stage manager.
- Please do not do liquid pours on the stage unless you’ve explicitly worked it out with the producer.
- If you have extras in your act, make sure you get approval from the producer prior to the show.
- Absolutely no fire is allowed on stage, anytime, ever.
- 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
- Cast and crew ONLY!! Makeup artists, dressers, etc., must be out of the dressing room by 9pm. If you have an extra, please discuss their dressing room needs with the producer prior to show night.
- Please be mindful of how much space you are taking up. Keep your belongings contained and share counters and mirrors.
- Please do not smoke or vape in the dressing room. It’s distracting, invasive to the small space, and damaging to costumes.
- Absolutely do not go in or out while an act is in progress. Please wait until the break between acts.
- The curtain must remain closed, even between numbers. You may peep out to watch performers, but please do it very discreetly.
- Please limit your liquids inside the dressing room. If you have a drink, keep a close eye on it so it doesn’t spill or drip.
- Please try to be quiet while backstage, unless you’re cheering for a performer or interacting with the host.
- Please limit aerosol sprays while backstage.
- The dressing room must be clean when you leave. Take all of your trash with you, and place 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!
