Performers’ Festival is this Saturday!

We are so looking forward to seeing you all at the 2014 Performers’ Festival on Saturday morning at Oakwood Village Auditorium on Mineral Point Road.  The show will start promptly at 9:00.

Park in the underground parking ramp.  When you enter Oakwood from Mineral Point Rd, veer left.  At the second garage door that is labeled Heritage parking is the underground parking.  Pull up to the door.  On your left is an intercom.  You can push the red button and tell the receptionist when they answer that you are with the 4H Performers Festival being held in the Center for the Arts/Auditorium.  Follow the signs to the auditorium.  You can use the elevator and carts in the parking ramp to move items easily into the Auditorium.

Oakwood Map

You may arrive by 8:15 AM to get set up.  There is not a lot of room back stage, but groups can set up in the back hallway, as long as they are supervised by an adult.  We expect youth to watch as many performances as possible–it’s a lot of fun to have an audience!  Please be respectful of the performers as you enter and exit the auditorium.

Remember that there is no food or drink in the auditorium!  We must be cleaned up and out of the space by 11:30, so please be mindful of cleaning up as you go along.

This is going to be a great festival!  Make sure to invite friends, family, and your 4H club!!

See you on Saturday!
