- Ever dream of performing LIVE on stage in Las Vegas?
- Ever think of adding some footage to your demo reel of you wowing a crowd at a real Las Vegas venue?
- How cool would it be to have video footage of your act "On Stage in Vegas"?
Turn that dream into reality with "On Stage In Vegas", a weekend intensive workshop which culminates with YOU starring in a variety show on a real Las Vegas stage with a live audience. You'll have an opportunity to get video footage along with a show program and promotional poster of the event highlighting YOU as a featured performer!
This unique event will be held May 17, 18 and 19 2013 in the Entertainment Capital of the World at a totally unique, stunning and absolutely gorgeous private theater with an enthusiastic live audience just waiting to give you the cheers and applause you deserve for your act.
This program is designed for performers who already have a stage worthy act. While we will provide some critique and coaching on stage presence, sound, lights, audience interaction, improv, etc; this is not a workshop to learn your craft. It's an experience where you'll get to showcase a 10-12 minute segment of your act on a stage in front of a live audience in Las Vegas.
THIS PROGRAM IS NOT a shortcut to fame and fortune. It's not a place where you're likely to be "discovered" by agents or talent buyers (although we probably have some in the audience, but no guarantees). It's not a "get rich quick" or 'big break" opportunity.
THIS PROGRAM IS an experience. A chance to come to Las Vegas, the Entertainment Capital of the World and experience the excitement of being part of a variety show. A chance to be video taped performing with other variety performers in a super cool theater environment. An opportunity to meet one or more Las Vegas headliner entertainers, see their show and have insider access to what creating a show such as theirs is all about. It's a chance to experience real Las Vegas Show Business, up close and personal!
Mark your calendars and plan on joining this exciting event with other variety performers from around the world.
This will be an intimate group of entertainers who are ready to boost their career to the next level. Space is limited to 6 participants. First come, first served. Until we get the registration site up and running, please drop us an e-mail to express your interest in participating in the next event.
We look forward to seeing YOU On Stage In Vegas!
Details are still being worked out, but as of December 21, 2012, here's what we've got planned so far:
Friday May 17, 1 PM - Meet with participants at the theater and have each participant do a run through of their act. We'll go through sound, lighting and staging requirements to make sure the performer has all they need to put on a solid act and be prepared to get some killer video footage the night of the show.
In the evening, we'll attend a Las Vegas show where we'll meet with the star performer(s) back stage before or after the performance. We'll look at specific aspects of their show and have a round table discussion of the show afterwards.
Saturday May 18 - We'll meet at the theater for a lecture by a Las Vegas performer who will discuss things such as stage presence, audience interaction and management, the importance of sound, lights and staging. We'll do a second rehearsal of the participants acts and provide additional feedback as well as firm up the staging, sound and light cues required by each act. We'll visit another show, meet with the star performer and do another round table discussion after their show.
Sunday May 19 - We'll meet back at the theater for a final dress rehearsal and provide an opportunity for the videographer to understand the dynamics of each participants act so they can get the best shots possible. In the evening, we'll bring in an adult audience who is ready to be entertained. We will provide a professional MC to host the show and go "On With The Show" at 7 PM.
Cost for the weekend On Stage In Vegas experience will be $747. We'll begin accepting applications and deposits around December 26. The class will be limited to 6 participants. (If we have more than 6 participants, we'll split the group into two and have both a matinee show as well as an evening show. We want no more than 6 performers in each show to provide the optimal opportunity for both the performers and the audience.)
Here's a photo of the stage of the theater. For those who are serious about joining us, I'll provide more photos and videos from the theater so you can see the quality of the venue.
Here's the description of the venue provided by the theater owner:
The Cube Theater is the private VIP showcase theater of World-Champion Show Pianist, Ryan Ahern. Available by invitation only, the Cube Theater is NOT a commercial theater. All Guests must be personally notified and invited to attend an event here. Events include private musical concerts, HD movie presentations, Sports and Media special events like UFC and Boxing pay-per-view, Super Bowl, Grammy Awards, Oscars, and other special presentations and screenings.
The Cube Theater can accomodate up to 60+ people in plush leather home theater style stadium seating. Each chair has overstuffed armrests, drink holders, and foot ottoman. There are also 4 full size Italian Leather sofas and love seats for those who prefer an even more relaxed viewing experience.
The Cube theater contains the latest in Blu-Ray Cinema Quality HD projection and digital surround sound. The full size theater movie screen provides the ultimate VIP movie watching experience.
The live music performance aspect of the theater boasts Ryan's 9' Concert Baldwin Grand Piano, a custom 10 piece Yamaha Rock Tour masters drum set, Guitars, Amps, two 24 channel snakes, as well as Sophisticated lighting, lasers, blacklights, strobes, disco ball, and fog machines. Famous artists prefer to rehearse here in Ryan's gated, private facility because the location is hidden, secure, and armed security patrol 24/7. There is no other theater in Las Vegas that can offer the private exclusivity and annonymity as does the Cube Theater.
The Cube Theater also has the Ryan Ahern merchandise counter which is a self contained gift shop that can be used as a bar or buffet area, if needed, complete with popcorn cart, sno-cone cart, and cotton candy cart.
Courtyard area can easily handle over 70 people seated for dinner service, and nearly twice that many in a standing cocktail reception style party. There is a fully built in concession bar in the courtyard for drink service and a full size commercial prep kitchen for catering.
Backstage facilities and restrooms complete this underground speakeasy style hidden gem in the middle of Las Vegas. Designed by Ryan Ahern, it is a theater going experience that is simply hard to beat.
"I hope you enjoy coming over to my little theater,
its been a wonderful experiencing building it and
hosting some memorable events for all of my
friends, family, and fans. We'll see you at the next one!"
