    Changing EI on the same film would be difficult if not impossible to develop proprerly I think. Personally I would just go with the fastest EI I think I might need. Also, I wouldn't take any chances on slow film. My personal choice would be Delta 3200 exposed at say 1600 for the whole evening.
    Good luck!

    That is called grain. It is supposed to be there.

    In a local opera company, I used to see a guy on stage taking photographs. He had 2 big advantages: (1) he worked as an extra (spear carrier) and (2) he was one of the producers. He had a third advantage that he could afford a Leica with an F 1.0 lens (with the pun name, "queen of the night").

    One suggestion I haven't seen is this--Can you go to bigger film? Would medium format allow for less grainy images? You might have to rent some gear to get fast lenses.

    Thank you all for your suggestions. The show was yesterday and all is done. I shot pretty much for 12 hours straight, that's how long the rehearsals went with around 200 performers of all ages. 10am - 10pm!!! I'll keep you posted.

    And you don't have anything developed and printed yet?! Sheesh. (lol)

    Long day, but I'll bet you had lots of fun with it, Nicole. And, I'm sure I'm not the only one anxious to see your results.

    Hi everyone, I got my photos back from the lab and I'm wrapped!!! I'll post a couple of shots soon. Thank you very much for you're input, it made my life easier.
    I actually used my Nikon D70 digi for some 'test' shots to compare. When I loaded them onto my computer I was horrified - and terrified that my film shots would turn out the same!!! Needless to say, film is far superior.
