Values 

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.

Stage Info

  • The stage is 3’3″ high and is carpeted.
  • You can leave the stage into the audience, there are stairs on stage left.
  • 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 with permission 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 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.

  • Our stage crew reserves the right to move your belongings if they disrupt reasonable access to the dressing room.
  • Props and costumes left behind after the show cannot be protected and may be thrown away by the bar.
