THIS IS HOW THE ROGUE WORKS...
The 2002 Rogue Performance Festival will take place in 2 venues housed in one location - The Sanctuary (Joe Williams Center) on the corner of Calaveras & N streets in Fresno,California. The venues are called THE MAINSTAGE and THE ROGUE CAFE respectively. Each venue offers a variety of performances guaranteed to titillate the senses, intellect and taste. Click on the EVENT SCHEDULE or the PERFORMERS button to the top left of your screen to find out who is performing where and when. Then turn up ON TIME, pay the LOW admission price... and enjoy. The fun is to bounce between venues and watch as many shows as possible! With a maximum charge of $5 per show on the MAINSTAGE and $3 per show at the ROGUE CAFE... how can you go wrong!!!
RULES OF THE ROGUE (and tips for the audience)
1. ALL PERFORMANCES WILL BEGIN ON TIME. Late-comers will NOT be allowed into the venues once a performance has begun. NO EXCEPTIONS!! (audience tip: Please arrive early. The performers have worked hard on their pieces and it is RUDE, INCONSIDERATE and very PROVINCIAL to show disrespect for their efforts... it breaks concentration and affects a performance drastically! Ticket sales for each performance will begin 30 minutes before showtime! Which brings us to our next rule...)
2. ALL TICKET SALES ARE FINAL. No Refunds, no exchanges, and no excuses. (audience tip: Please arrive early. Ticket prices are cheap and 100% of the box-office sales go to the artists and performers.)
3. ALL PERFORMANCES ARE GENERAL ADMISSION SEATING. (audience tip: Please arrive early. This way you can get the best seats in the house.)
4. ONE MORE TIME!
NO LATE SEATING out of respect for other patrons and the performers.
NO LATE SEATING at ANY Rogue show, in ANY venue, for ANY reason, not even with a ticket.
NO LATE SEATING no matter who you are or how hard you tried to be on time.
(audience tip: Please
