Just looked at the review of your camera. It does not do well beyond ISO 400 (even if it can go up to ISO 3,200). So you’ll get a noisy photo.
Flash (of any kind) should not be used. Whatever lighting they set up on stage, a flash ruins it–and it’s distracting, too. Probably most important thing is the stage is probaby too far any way.
You need to use a dSLR for a clean shot. I hate to sound like a Sony basher, but Popular Photograhy magazine reports that even their top of the line 24 MP dSLR does not do well at all at high ISO. Canon and Nikon do better.
Here is one ISO 3,200 http://www.flickr.com/photos/little_pooky/3453338843/ Canon 5DM2 with 135 mm f 2 lens.
