and I don’t know how to use most of the right settings, when I’m in a dark area it usually takes forever to process then the picture will turn out blurry which tomorrow it probably will do that if I don’t find the right settings to use. Tomorrow night will probably be one of the best nights of my life, so please help.

Read the manual.

I’m guessing with your particular camera, you will have a choice between dark and clear or light and blurry.

    You’ll have to break out your manual for how to do these things, but you are going to need to change your ISO settings and put the camera in “Aperture priority”.

    * Aperture priority (A mode)
    * ISO setting should be high (start with 1600 and move up or down)
    * Aperture should be wide open (f/2.7-4.5)
    * Turn OFF face detection (slows things down too much)

    The way the lens is made on your camera, the aperture is f/2.7 when it is wide angle and automatically narrows down to f/4.5 when it is zoomed all the way out. This is normal for consumer lenses, but it can propose a problem in low light situations. You might have to bump up your ISO to 3200, but the pictures will be pretty noisy.

    Doing all that is the best you can do with the camera you have. The rest all depends on how close you can get to the stage and how bright the lights are. Ideally the shutter speeds should be at least 1/60th second to 1/125th second (at full zoom) to avoid blurry pictures.
