What time should performers get to the Heider Center?
Performers should plan to arrive 15 to 30 minutes prior to the start of the (assigned) show time. This time will be used for receiving your recital T-shirt at the registration table, changing into the recital shirt (if desired), and finding your seat.  To ensure safety and assure we are able to transition timely between shows, we ask that all performers remain off the stage prior to the start of the show.  Our staff move in many different directions before the show so we kindly ask that you do not arrive more than 30 minutes before the assigned show time as we will not be prepared to help you.  

How will I know when it’s time to perform?
We have an emcee for each show and we will be announcing who is “on deck” and who is “in the hole.”  We also have color coordinated areas of the stage for where to go when it’s time to perform.  We have a printed program that also offers a visual line-up of the show.

Is the stage handicap accessible?
Yes! There are ramps on either side of the stage that all clients will use to get on and off of the stage. Entrances and exits to the Heider Center are also handicap accessible.

What do performers need to wear?
Performers are welcome to wear whatever is most comfortable. Most of our performers wear their recital T-shirt that they receive on the day of the show. You are welcome to change in the bathrooms before the show if your child wants to wear their new T-shirt.

How much does the recital T-Shirt cost?
T-shirts are free to performers who attend the recital.  This is our THANK YOU for making this event an important part of your year with LIH!  We will be selling any shirts that are not picked up by performers at the recital.

How do I purchase additional T-Shirts?
What if the performer gets stage fright? If you have concerns regarding the person’s ability to perform or confidence in getting on stage please know this… this is exactly what the LIH recital is for!  There is no need to have additional anxiety or concern about “how will he/she do?”, “will he/she get on stage?”, etc.  We are trained to work through these various changing needs.  This is what makes our recital so powerful, special, and unique.  The audience understands that this is a HUGE event and SUCCESS for all of our performers, whether they have performed in the past five shows or if this is their first performance with us.

Can I take pictures/video during the performances?
Certainly! Please take pictures and videos of your performances. We will also have a “photo booth” station in the lobby for you to take pictures with your family and/or staff.
