Guidelines for Manhattan Rep's Lip Sync Contest
All Lip Sync presentations must be 4 minutes or less, and of course, OFF BOOK.
Each performer, if they wish can bring in up to 4 dancers.
Costumes are allowed and encouraged, but no Feathers or Glitter are allowed for Feathers and Glitter make a mess of the theatre.
No Stage blood allowed for any reason.
No thrown ashes or dust.
No smoke machines or dry ice is allowed. We are a small venue - the audience will choke.
No thrown or dropped water or liquids of any kind. (Sorry Flashdance fans!)
Manhattan Rep reserves the right to strike any potentially dangerous props from your presentation if we feel there is danger for the audience. (Stage Swords, knives, umbrellas, rifles, wire hangers, pool cues, etc etc.)
All participants must treat fellow participants and management with respect and kindness. On stage Divas in this context are fine, but disrespectful off -stage Divas will be politely asked to leave, and their non-refundable commitment fee will not be returned.
Once registered, there are no refunds of the Non-Refundable commitment fee for any reason.
