It is 7am on the morning of the Festival…

… online ticket sales have closed.

… volunteers and crew are scheduled for their shifts.

… t-shirts, prizes for the Festival raffle and some quick draws for the Gala Show have arrived.

… vendors have selected their wares and are either loading up their vehicles, or are already underway.

… lights, sound equipment, chairs and other requirements have been rented.

… performers are rehearsed, ready to do their walk-throughs ahead of the big shows.

… workshop leaders have planned their sessions and practiced the skills they will share.


It feels like that magical moment, when the lights have gone down and a hush falls over the audience, just as the curtain is about to rise.


We cannot wait to bring you the best year MadSkillz has produced yet!


See you soon,


MadSkillz 2016 Crew
