Outdoor Performance Options for Spring 2021

Hello and thanks for stopping by. 

 

The uncertainty of the pandemic have left venues wondering if they should host live performances. Many have  eliminated them altogether and have switched to virtual options. Unfortunately though, my shows are ill suited for virtual performance. And along with the technology glitches of Zoom and Google and lack of space to perform in my house, I decided to continue to do what I do best: LIVE PERFORMANCE. Only through this medium, could I continue to give my audiences a high quality show that they will love. 

 

Recently, I was put to the test, when I was hired to perform outdoors for two separate events. Both of them were next to one or more busy streets and the space was limited. The audiences brought their own lawn chairs, wore masks and socially kept distant. I brought everything I needed to present my show.  It worked out surprisingly well and the audiences enjoyed themselves immensely despite not having the usual amenities.  They really appreciated the opportunity to get outside and enjoy a live performer. With the long winter in front of us and no end to the pandemic, audiences will be longing for live entertainment in the spring. If this is something that you want to consider, keep reading. 

 

What do I need from you?

  • A suitable performance area. It can be grassy or hardtop (asphalt or cement). Dirt is OK but not gravel. 
  • Electrical outlet (if lighting is needed) 
  • Table if requested
  • The audience!

What I will provide?

  • A show (see below for available shows)
  • Props and staging.
