A Performing Arts Showcase

 

Milford Performs - A Performing Arts Showcase is a Milford Community TV program that gives Milford-area performing artists opportunities to display and discuss their arts and interests.  The performers come from the fields of music, dance, theater, comedy, and any other visual and audio media. 

For five seasons from 2013 to 2018, two or three performers - individuals, groups, troupes, and instructors - were given a stage on which to perform in each show.  Milford Performs was a prerecorded showcase program, so we wanted to give our performers every opportunity to show the Milford community their best performances.  If any performer asked for a retake or two - or ten - to get a song, dance, or line just right - no problem!  We included only the best take in our showcase.

Each Milford Performs episode runs 30 minutes and is still broadcast four times a week for four weeks on Milford TV - Comcast Channel 8 and Verizon Channel 38.  Additionally, performances are posted to the Milford Performs YouTube channel, and each performer on our show received a complimentary DVD of their show.  Milford TV's studio has all new equipment including control room equipment, monitors, and sound equipment, with more arriving every month.

Each episode of Milford Performs was publicized on Milford TV and other local media outlets, plus emails, handbills, the Milford Performs Facebook page, and this Milford Performs website.  We wanted people to see your best on Milford TV!

WHERE DID THE PERFORMERS ON MILFORD PERFORMS COME FROM?

The performing artists on Milford Performs usually came from Milford and the surrounding towns of Hopkinton, Bellingham, Upton, Mendon, and Medway, although many were from outside this area.  Artists included instructors and studio owners from Milford-area schools, studios, clubs, or troupes were invited regardless of residency.  If, like Milford Performs, you and/or your group were nominated for a WMRC My 101.3 FM Local Music Award, you were local enough be to be on our show, too! 

WHO COULD BE ON MILFORD PERFORMS?

Maybe - YOU!  We looked for talent of all ages, school age through seasoned adult.  Have you spent many hours making yourself the best performing artist you can be, be you a musician, dancer, actor, comedian, juggler, magician?  Are you considering applying for college to major in a performing art?  Do you want to show current and potential students how expert you are in what you do?  How about a longtime member of a local band that needs more exposure?  Milford Performs wants to give you a chance to be heard, seen, and appreciated!

If you know your stuff, let us know.  Milford Performs could be the start of something bigger, how you recruit new students to your studio, the next step on your road to the top, or just that opportunity to make a professionally recorded and edited DVD of your act to send to your parents to show that all those nights and dollars spent on lessons did not go to waste.  Whatever your reason, know that you will be among friends when you come into the Milford Community Media Center to be on Milford Performs.

HOW MUCH DOES IT COST TO BE ON MILFORD PERFORMS?

NOTHING!  You also get paid nothing - but the DVD of your show is free.  Milford TV is a not-for-profit organization run for the benefit of its Milford viewing audience, so the programs are produced by volunteers, like the hosts of Milford Performs (check our Hosts page above).
