Ote'a Entrance for Boys
1. Blow Pu 3x from Monk Seal Area (boys are close together, elbow to elbow).
2. Blow Pu 1x in front of the VIP Table (boys are close together, elbow to elbow) - Split in half to go onto stage.
3. Blow Pu 1x at stage (normal staging).
This will be 5x blows total.
Fire Knife Catcher
All Male LC's need to assign a FK catcher for each show. Do not allow the KL staff to take our catcher's place. Please write it on the board!
Fire Knife Dancers
The quality of our show also depends of the consistency of our fire knife routine. As a FKD, you represent Malu Productions and it is important to execute consistently. Past show notes explain that the tower wasn't because a FKD was not feeling well. This is not acceptable. If you are unable to perform according to the show's standards, please find a sub. There are other FKDs that want the work.
Poi Ball Crashers
Sent a green bag labeled "poi ball crashers" on Friday. Please keep this bag in the storage after use. Girls who crash during show need to stay after the show to practice. The dancer will need to get it at least 4x straight without crashing before leaving.
Lei Pua Needle Accountability
After every pre-show, the person working this station needs to make sure EVERY needle is accounted for, regardless if the needle is damaged or broken. This is essential for the safety of our guests, KL Staff, and Malu Cast Members. If one is lost, search the ground for it and all around the station, to make sure it is not sticking up out of the ground. Malu Admins will only send new ones if the old ones are accounted for and returned.
The 2 Male Dancers assigned to do Photo will assist spotlight person in moving benches right when pre-show is done - they have been forgetting to help with this. Benches go in middle/center of the stage.
Photographers to arrange/place guests
Our performers should not be the ones to arrange or place the guests for photos. This takes too much time. Their supervisors have confirmed that it's the Photographers job to do this.
We do not encourage or accept any tips at our lu'aus. Please let the guests know. If there is a tip that a guest insists we take, it is divided up between your specific groups (Ex: FKD, Female Dancer, Male Dancer).
Last Man/Pick Up
We will begin designating pick-up areas, similar to HK seating chart, but until then, LC assigns each dancer.
OSM is now in charge of turning off house lights at the start of the show. House lights are located at the side of stage - ask Victor to show you. This allows for a more timely cue of the start of show, and ensures only Malu staff/cast are backstage. No one else should be backstage, including any KL staff.
