What should I bring to a workshop?

Staying hydrated and fueled is important to keep your energy up throughout the day, so make sure you drink lots of water and eat. For all workshops, bringing a pen and paper is always good for note taking. Some workshops also request specific items, such as props, skirts, and zils. So please check the workshop description for details.

What should I wear to the workshops?

For workshops, you should wear clothing that allows you to move. Some participants go simple and wear comfy workout clothes; others pull out the stops and wear. It is up to you! For the evening Gala shows, nice clothes are always appreciated. Perhaps wear something that you bought at the ABDC?
