Instructions on Putting on A Show
Shows are absolutely fun to watch as much as to perform in it. Looking at all
the acts in one program, the stunned audience applauds them loudly afterwards.
There's nothing like a presentation that gladdened billions of viewers worldwide
of all ages. But, what is a show and how do you make it?
Whenever I hear the word "show," I mean a theatrical show, so-called because
it's presented at a theater. Displays of that type are neither limited to
Broadway musicals nor magic acts; it can be virtually anything ranging from
famliy-oriented revues to adults' spectacles. Shows are shown not only in
community venues, but they're seen in theme parks, ballrooms, reception centers
of hotels (if it's a wedding or other formal occasion of that type), and
football fields. The joy of performers displaying a dazzling array of numbers
leaves an audience begging for more.
If you are raring to put on a show, count your blessings; it's rigorous labor,
but it's going to be exciting. First of all, you'll need a theater, preferably
twelve feet by ten feet. If you cannot find a theater in your local community,
ask your inhabitants in your neighborhood (parents sometimes included) to assist
you in building one. If it's a very special event regarding formal clothing, you
would ask them if they could make the presentation in a hotel or other ballroom.
Everybody knows that a show needs performers, so hire students from local
schools (or colleges) who have talent and do something to dazzle the eyes who
see them. If money pulls your leg, tell your friends who love to do their
talents to perform, especially your adult neighbors!
Next, sew some eye-catching costumes to astonish your toughest critics viewing
it. If your show includes dancers, either ballet or whatever dance form that's
usually performed on stage, mend one in which they can move freely in. Then,
tell someone to do the props and backdrops (use lighting if it's dark, shady, or
indoors) if feasible. An optional thing to do is to videotape the whole program,
making it a colossal keepsake. Subsequently, use music in the show to make it
much more effective. You can bring a stereo, CD player, cassette tapes, CD's, or
have performers BYOM (bring your own music). If they play a particular
instrument, whether brass, woodwind, or string, that's fine! Then, arrange the
seating for the viewers (use more seats if there's a large capacity). Also,
print tickets and advertise; people can't wait to pay admission for talented
amateurs (or performers)! The process is followed by the rehearsal of the acts,
to ensure perfection. Finally, the magic begins on opening night!
In conclusion, what magical thing is presented on the center stage? If you
guessed a show, it actually is! They created worldwide acclaim of entertainment
that attracted billions. Fine concerts, On-and off-Broadway musicals, and others
dazzled them in living talent. If you wanted a public display of talent, let's
put on a show!
