How To Plan For A Talent Show Fundraiser

You’re going to want to have an area where performances can happen. This area will require the right amount of seats for the expected attendance. It’s best if you use meeting halls or other intimate areas. It’s especially recommended if you don’t have equipment for audio that amplifies the volume of the performers. When you find your venue, find a date around two months in advance. Evenings on a weekday are what you should go for when deciding a date.

If you’re going to be using a performance area that is massive, you should have at least a PA system, along with a microphone and speakers. That is so that the performers won’t have to be shouting. If the venue doesn’t have a small stage, you should set one up if you can. They are cheap and help with directing the focus of the audience. You shouldn’t forget about the stage lights so that people can see the performers.

When you’re considering how the room will be laid out, think about the chairs and tables. You can arrange your seating in a variety of ways. Be creative, and it won’t be a challenge. Make sure to remember that the focus is on letting the performers being seen. Speaking of performers, think about how you’re going to get them to attend your talent show. You have to know how to be an excellent advertiser. A bit more than a month before the talent show, you should be posting fliers around for it. The fliers can both be an advertisement for performers and for people who want to watch. Ensure that it has the information on time and date the talent show is, as well as who the funds go to and the fundraising goal.

Prepare your performers at least a week before the talent show. If they aren’t prepared by then, it’ll raise the risk of a mistake or an issue coming up later on when the talent show is happening. Make sure that the performances aren’t inappropriate. Collect each of your performers’ contact information, as well as how they prefer to be contacted. Then when you get the lineup of your talent show ready, inform the performs of the schedule of the show. You’ll also need to get the process of collecting money for your fundraising, organised.

What Happens On The Night Of The Talent Show

When it’s time for the talent show to happen, you’ll need two people or more helping out. One person will have to be collecting the tickets or donations when people enter the venue. The other person can be the event’s MC. They’ll be the ones giving introductions for the performers when they get onto and off the stage. Ensure that you thank people for going to your show and those who donated their money, equipment and time.
