Welcome to the KC
You're here. Hooray!
No, seriously, you're about to have a pretty cool day.
Why? Because this show is gonna rock.
Never been to a show? Don’t freak out. Here’s everything you need to know.
How to look like you know what you're doing before the show begins...
Thank the ushers. These people are here to give you programs, show you to your seat, and answer questions for you. Some days, they answer the same question, over and over again, but they will make you feel like it is the first time. Be sure to thank them.
You: Where is my seat?
Usher: You’re sitting in it.You: Thank you.
Throw away your gum. No, don’t hide it in your cheek. Are you a chipmunk?
Go use the restroom. Before the show. Or during intermission. Or maybe during the show, but only if it’s a total emergency, and even then you must be super quiet.
Read your program. This tells you who’s in the show you’re about to see. Sometimes you can guess which are real names and which are stage names:
Probably real names: Steve Williams, Jim Gallagher, Alice Smith
Probably stage names: Colonel Awesome, Mercury von Dynamo, ¡brittani!
Turn off your cell phone. So sorry, but vibrate doesn’t count. Off, off, off.
Look cool during the performance...
