Denote one as primary and the other as secondary. The primary number will be included in the lottery. The secondary number will be put on the waitlist.

Lottery selection: We will use the lottery method to select performers for the show.

NO GLITTER at all: 

Ensure that no glitter is in or on your costume, makeup, hair, props, accessories, shoes, lotion, or any other part. This means ZERO GLITTER regardless if you believe it does not shed. If you have any questions about your costume, please reach out to the planning committee at least two weeks in advance of the show. If your costume, etc., does not meet these requirements, you will need to switch to another costume or you cannot perform.
