As a Photographer's Mate, the first lesson they taught us about were the properties of light. The flash from a camera cannot travel greater than 10 feet... which is why it astonishes me to see people using flash cameras during shows.

Not only does a flash distract everyone and blind the performers (and whatever unfortunate persons happen to be looking in that direction), it's useless. You've got to be right up on them for the light to fall upon your subjects and make a difference, and if you're that close, you don't need a flash at all!

Setting the camera at the proper ISO and f/stop, and using the correct speed of film if you've got a film camera, will give you good, clear pictures in the darkness. With digital cameras, you've got the benefit of technology and it'll do everything for you sans flash.
