Oddmall May or May Not Have Talent! What the goose is that?
Here’s a sweet new thing we’re trying out for the very first time at Oddmall: Emporium of the Weird! It’s a talent show. You know, where people come up on stage and show off their interesting human tricks and their various superpowers.
Who is invited to participate?
Everybody. Every single person on Earth is welcome to come up on stage and do their thang. Doesn’t matter how old, how tall, or how allergic to goats. There are no restrictions.
Are there any restrictions?
A few. First off, performers actually have to be present at Oddmall during the allotted time. No phoning it in. Second, no acts that feature racist, homophobic, misogynistic or otherwise evil overtones or undertones will be allowed on stage. Third, performers must supply any associated props, instruments, or similar devices needed for their act. We will have microphones and a sound system, but everything else is out of our hands. Fourth, for obvious reasons, forbidden are things that are illegal or overly dangerous (no open flame or live carnivorous monstrosities, please).
When and where?
The thing happens at about 3:30pm on Saturday May 5 (directly following the Oddmall Costume Contest). It will be on the main Oddmall stage, which is in the large rotunda directly to the left when you walk into the Knight Center. You can’t miss it even if you try. It’s right there in your face.
I may or may not have talent. How can I get involved?
If you want to participate all you have to do is show up at the spot at 3:30pm on Saturday May 5 (directly after the costume contest). Bring any props or instruments or whatever with you and find a seat in the audience. We’ll be calling for volunteers from the rabble to come up on stage. There is no need to preregister, but if you want to let us know what to expect please submit the following form (which, I stress, is optional. If you don’t fill out the form you can still participate. Of course, we appreciate if you do fill out the form because it, as I said, gives us an idea of what to expect):
Is it free?
Yes. It is free.
Will there be prizes?
Of course there will be prizes. I don’t know what they’ll be yet, but there will indeed be prizes. Grand prize is THE PEOPLE’S OVATION AND FAME FOREVER and also probably something else.
I have questions.
Cool. Send Andy and email.
