Here is some info for those performing in the festival
.4) Performer Pass Upgrades
... are available for purchase. You'll get free entry into two shows (not including Uncle's Brother) with your standard badge. This entrance is on a wait-list availability, and can only be used if there is room after everyone else is seated. You also have the option of upgrading your pass so that you can see all of the shows or all of the shows except Uncle's Brother. This means you can make a reservation request at any show and provided the show is not sold out already, you will have will-call tickets reserved for you. Please email to our box office manager, Matt,if you're having trouble with the system. [ box AT outofboundscomedy DOT com ]
PLEASE NOTE: Because there are no reservations for ColdTowne Theater and Velveeta Room shows, we unfortunately cannot guarantee entry to these shows.
You can also pay cash and upgrade your pass when you pick up your packet and badges, but buying it online is way easier for us and you.
Performers will be able to register from 5-9pm each day of the festival by going to the Hideout classroom to pick up their badges, t-shirt, and welcome packets. They can enter through the front of the building before 7pm generally and through the rear of the building after 7pm generally.
1) Hideout Performer Entrance
We are going to try a new system this year where performers enter in the alley behind the Hideout and are sent to the upstairs for upstairs shows and remain downstairs for downstairs shows. This will not go into effect each night until probly 30 minutes before the start of the first show each night. Before then, performers can use any entrance.
The deadline for making a reservation at The Hilton Garden Inn has passed. Sorry, sucker.
Reserve by the deadline or you risk not getting in at all.

5) Tickets and Workshops
5) All-Star Maestro
Sign up with Roy for a chance to maybe play in our 2011 All-Star Maestro show. Maestro is a short form pseudo competitive improv show where every player is fighting to stay in the show as the audience scores each scene they are in. Always a blast at OOB and we want to get a wide variety of players, so do muck in. email Roy: roy ART janik DORT org

7) MUCHO Importante
One last note about your show, we are very strict about time as the schedule is super tight. Please refer to an earlier email if you don’t know how long your set is. We will black you out and it will be awkward for you if you go long. A note to sketch troupes: Please travel light and be prepared for your tech rehearsal with a cue script (we will schedule these as the festival gets closer.) Also, be advised, we will black you out if you run long.
7.1) Pre-Order Out of Print
Out of Print is the inaugural edition of the Out of Bounds Literary Magazine, of which many of you have contributed works. It's a beautiful little compendium of funny and enlightening written comedy. It features work from Greg Proops and a couple guys named Jon, as well as many others not named Jon. There is also a limited run of just 100 and we'll be selling them to the public at shows, so the only way to guarantee you'll get one is to pre-order it. You can do this from the Tickets page, linked above.
