Ok, better late than never.

So here's the way this is going down:
Bardic night's theme this year is "Night at the Theater". This means that fancy dress is encouraged (think 'feast garb') and there will be fabulous prizes awarded for audience members who go the extra mile; such as 'most spectacular hat', and 'fanciest getup' etc. As last year, audience participation is encouraged and rewarded.

There will only be three judges this year, and I only currently have one slot available for that position, so if you are interested, let me know asap via pm. Give me a reason you should get the honored judging position. Keep in mind that the judges will be saying their respective pieces in between performances, so be prepared to please (or displease) the crowd.

Performances will be limited to two and a half minutes in length from the moment you begin. There will be a timekeeper in the back of the crowd with a flashlight which will be flashed at you at the two minute mark as a thirty second warning, then flashed again at 2:20. WRAP IT UP. I recommend practicing your act once or twice beforehand with a stopwatch to make sure you meet this time frame. Once your time is up, you will be politely escorted off stage (hopefully with some sweet Oscars-esque 'play them off music')

Performances of any type will be accepted and are encouraged; however, please keep in mind that this show will be going on before the kiddies bedtime, so anything that delves too much beyond PG-13 will also be quickly escorted offstage. On that note, a reminder to parents, while I want this to be kid-friendly as possible, there will most likely end up being a few adult-themed jokes told during the course of the evening, so use your personal discretion on when earmuffs need to be enforced, and when bedtime should be established. AGAIN though, PG-13 everyone.

On to types of acts. I would like a variety show, and I know the talent is out there. Medieval is not required, but if you feel that will get the crowd's favor, by all means go for it. Judges will be taking crowd reaction into their scoring. Dance, singing, instrumental, comedy, lore, epic tales, nothing is off limits aside from time and the aforementioned family-friendly nature of the show. I know this is for banner points, but more than anything I want this to be entertaining and fun for everyone involved. So bring your 'A' game.

I am going to have a limited number of slots for performances, so get with your units and realms and banner groups, and come up with an entry. I will be accepting entries from now until Bardic night, or until slots fill up. So earlier entries will be treated favorably. However, in the interest of fairness with this being for banner points, any first entries from groups going for the banner may take a slot from second or third entries from other groups. All parties involved will be informed prior to the show if that case arises, and I expect everyone to be adults and allow fair competition without throwing a hissy fit. Any entries that are unaffiliated with any banner group will not be bumped.

OK, pretty sure that's everything. Any questions can be asked in this thread.

ANY ENTRIES PRIOR TO CHAOS WARS SHOULD BE SENT TO ME VIA PM. PLEASE INCLUDE WHAT GROUP YOU WILL BE ENTERING FOR (THIS CAN BE CHANGED AT ANY POINT PRIOR TO THE START OF THE SHOW). PLEASE ALSO INCLUDE A SHORT DESCRIPTION OF THE ACT SO I CAN PUT YOU IN THE LINEUP A PLACE THAT WILL BEST ATTRACT THE ATTENTION OF THE CROWD.

Thank you,
Juicer
