Community Engagement

Activities. Make a themed night out of it – Country and Western Theme –this can be a big success and a good way to get good numbers to the show. Venue would sometimes have a themed menu (both food & drink eg. Buffalo wings, American whisky specials) for the night, deck it out with hay bales, with fancy dress prizes advertised including best Johnny Cash lookalike. Show involves a lot of audience participation – good to promote this side of the show – guest singers are selected from audience, audience has a sing off against different sides of the room.
