>since, thousands of glbt people and allies have celebrated national coming
>out day in schools, churches and businesses nationwide through workshops,
>speak-outs, rallies and other events aimed at showing the public that glbt
>people are everywhere. hrc's national coming out project supports these
>events by providing event ideas, materials and themes.
>          "we have long recognized the power of public figures to inspire and
>influence the general public," said candace gingrich, hrc's national coming
>out project manager. "this year, we are especially excited by the great
>number of respected artists who have lent their names to our efforts. all of
>them are tremendous role models for gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender
>americans, showing that you can live an out, open and successful life."
>         among the other celebrities who have supported hrc's national coming
>out project in the past are: olympic champion diver greg louganis and actors
>mitchell anderson, amanda bearse and dan butler. betty degeneres, author and

girls mailing list at netspace.org.]

all the concerts at the fair are free with admission, which is $5. there
will be limited number of reserved seats available for $10 each beginning
april 22 at www.ocfair.com or the fair box office.

more info here:
http://www.ocfair.com/ocfec/aboutthefair/pressreleases/03-28-02.htm

as far as the actual theater, i've never seen a show at the fair, so i'm
not sure about specifics. one press release says the capacity is 8,500. i'm
looking at the aerial photo of the fairgrounds, and i think my girl scout
troop's annual campout uses the theater space. if it the same theater, the
stage is open air, and in really bad shape (creaky floorboards that feel
like they're going to give). there's a small concrete area below and in
front of the stage (where i presume the reserved seats would be -- i'd
estimate room for 100 seats, maybe less) and behind that is a large, flat
grass field. i'll check on that, but i'm pretty sure that's where they hold
the concerts.
