Variety Show.
--------------------­-------------------
The Rainfurrrest Variety Show is your chance to take the stage and
entertain your fellow furs at our annual event on the main stage.
Fursuit performances, comedy, musical acts, magic ... Bring it! Please
keep your act tasteful for an evening open audience, equivalent to a
PG-13 film rating level or milder, and under six minutes.

There will be a mandatory audition-rehearsal on Saturday at 9:30 AM in
which we will review your act, costumes, and sound files, order the acts
for performance, and work with you to make the most of your act on the
RF stage. This will be your chance to smooth out any difficulties, find
your blocking marks on the stage, and learn our backstage procedures.

If you don't want to perform, but would like to help out as a stage
hand, fursuit handler, or greeter/usher, we'd love to hear from you as well.

For more information on how to sign up, email [address removed] or
visit ConOps before the rehearsal to sign up.

Art Show and Art Jam Announcement.

For those folks participating in Art Jam, If you draw some art you want
to display, RainFurrest will be providing two Art Show panels to Art Jam
for people to display their work on. It's a great way to get your name
out there, and your art displayed if you have not participated in an
artshow before! The pieces must be displayed NFS (Not for Sale) and
participation is limited to those who are participating in Art Jam.

For those who simply wish to have their own panels in Art Show, you are
in luck! We still have panels available for sale! Only for the low price
of $15. For more details or how to sign up, please visit

be without a campfire? Join us around the fire pit near the pool on
Thursday night. Bring your guitar, drums, banjo and harmonica and let's
sing to the high September moon! For the songwriters among us, this is a
great time to showcase your talents, and share some of the songs you
have written! Camp counselor Bob will be there with some song books to
help the rest of us along! Please visit our events page
https://www.rainfu...­ for more information.
