Default Performing Arts Bimonthly Theme

Hello Fellow Simmers!

MTS is proud to announce that we are bringing back themes! As of June 1, 2017 we are starting a series of new themes, each lasting for 2 months.
There will be a special extended one that lasts over the holidays however, only to begin anew in January of next year.

After much heated debate (actually we took a poll) we decided on Performing Arts for the first one. Of course, the gigantic banner up above is probably a good clue which one won

Build a theater, create an instrument, make a costume, be creative in a multitude of ways! We look forward to seeing what the community comes up with
Be sure to put #themeperformingarts in your hash tags though, and mention that any uploads are part of the new theme so we don't miss any!

As usual, contributors will receive a shiny new Achievement Sticker for their collections
7 users say thanks for this. (Who?)

*Wonders about maybe finishing up the theatre from my university campus and posting that to get in on this contest / get feedback from the larger community on the styles I'm using for that project...

This is wonderful news! I was just getting into creating and participating in these when they were pulled and was so bummed. Humongous thanks, mods and site staff, for bringing back themes! As a creator I enjoy how they inspire projects I might not otherwise have planned, and as a downloader I love the great goodies they bring! Cheers, and thanks again! (^_^)

Does a TV studio qualify as a venue for the performing of an art?

Great, I'll get right on it.

As an aspiring singer/Broadway actress myself, this excites the hell out of me! Can't wait to get started!
#15 Old 14th Jun 2017 at 3:23 PM
Oooh. Someone please do a woodwind instrument! You'd win for sure, at least for me. Lol.

♫ Keeping this here until EA gives us a proper playable woodwind/brass instrument ♫

Yes, this is so cool! And a great opportunity for me to finally finish the Kabuki theater I started building AGES ago! :D

I believe in the "Thanks" button and its amazing powers !!!

I know I won't be able to contribute anything (because I'm not good at making things) but its good to see themes again.

Especially if there's a theme you like, and a content creator you like decides to make new CC based around it. Like that one time the monthly theme was Chuck Norris. Obviously I'll have to pitch in with ideas:

- the future (in a Into The Future sort of way)
- the past (in a 70s, 80s & 90s Stuff sort of way)
- Chuck Norris's colleagues (in an 80s action movie sort of way, and I'd pitch in the building from Die Hard)

These themes not only inspire creativity, but teamwork too! @gdayars and I (justJones) have started a mod team because of it :P

Oh a whole 2 months? Awesome, I'll actually have time to make something after getting a new laptop, yes!

Of course I'll have to figure out what to make, plus see how busy my social life is. :P

Why do I have a badly done MS Paint spiral as my profile pic you ask? Well you see I have nothing better to put there than a thing I quickly made during a grade 10 business class.

I'm building a venue that includes space for performing, but where performing is not the focus of it all - a large park with a bandstand to be exact. Would that fall under the theme or not?

Am not sure. It would depend on what percentage of the lot was theme based probably
