FALL Performance Guidelines

  1. All performances should be 4-H appropriate and must have been specifically prepared by 4-H members/leaders. No specific theme is required.
  2. Performances will not be categorized by age or grade of participants. For FALL Performers Festival: Because the acts are not being evaluated, 4-H members may invite friends to perform with them. All acts must have at least one 4-H member involved.   Participants may include Cloverbuds.
  3.  Time Limit: Maximum of 10 minutes for individuals and 15 minutes for groups. This time limit includes set up and take down. Please limit performances to 2 songs.
  4. A play may be an already existing play, a play adapted to the club, a play written by members of the club, or an original pantomime.  Puppets and marionettes may also be used.
  5. Each group is responsible for setting up and taking down its own props. Any mess made must be cleaned up before leaving the stage area and before the next act.
  6. As a courtesy to other performers, participants are encouraged to support other groups by being a part of the audience. Clubs are encouraged to promote the Festival to total club membership and local community.
  7. Please do not exit or enter during a performance.



  1. To have a group activity which will be fun and involve all or as many club members as possible in a cooperative venture.  Working together on a production builds friendships and helps a club become more closely knit.
  2. To develop imagination and stimulate creative instinct.
  3. To increase self-confidence of participants.
