You’ve got tunes, we’ve got stages and audiences with ears. Do you tickle those keys like a rock star? Do you sing like a siren, driving sailors to crush themselves upon rocky shores? Sound makes you ground, music is your main jam.

**Deadline: June 1**

Are you in the circus, a burlesque dancer? Do you bring flavor to the sh’soup by roving with giant mushroom costumes? Do you want to create a miniature puppet performance that surprises passersby in the Enchanted Forest zone?

**Deadline: June 1**

You made a 42 foot tall puppet of a dust mite that breaths fire and glows only when approached with open eyes. You made a stop motion FILM about the life of a stone. You invented a monolithic musical instrument from old bike frames and brake cables!

**Open now! Rolling deadline: June 15**
