Stage Sketch Plan

 

A Stage sketch plan helps the organisers to set out the stage to suit your ensemble or band. Whether you have a large orchestra or a tiny trio, it helps the MYMF stage crew enormously to have a copy of your stage sketch plan to arrange the stage to suit your needs quickly and efficiently. 

 

Please download the MYMF sketch plan proforma here, fill it out and hand to the Ensembles Registrar with your music when you arrive for your Ensembles Day performance.

Why does the Registrar need your music title and composer a week before you perform?

The Registrar needs this time to process this information and add to the Festival's

  • 4 - 5 running sheets

  • Blank Adjudicator reports

  • Compere's script.

 

The blank Adjudicator's Reports are placed in numbered manila folders and then into the section's plastic document box. This all takes considerable time for the volunteer Registrars.

 

So, out of respect for your Registrar, please go to Stardom and update your title and composer no later than a week before you perform.

 

Presenting your music title and composer on the day holds up the Registrar and the other performers waiting to register as the changes have to be hand-written onto the printed running sheets, adjudicator reports and compere's script.  It is far quicker and easier for you to do this on-line in Stardom beforehand, isn't it?
