Need suggestions for dance recital.

My niece is having her first dance recital next month and I'd like to try to get some nice pictures for my brother and sister-in-law.  I'll tell you what I'm working with gear-wise, and a couple ideas I have; then I'd appreciate any feedback, tips, advice, etc, keeping in mind that I'm still relatively new at this.

I'll be using my T3 with either the 18-55mm kit lens or 75-300mm zoom, depending on how far we are sitting from the stage area.  I figured it would be best to bring both just in case.  I'm assuming the audience will be sitting in a dark or dimly lit area, as usual, and the stage will hopefully be somewhat illuminated.  I don't want to lug too much equipment, because I don't know how much space I'll have, but I've considered possibly getting a monopod to ensure a more steady camera.

Anyway, that's where I am now.  Suggestions on gear, camera/lens settings, etc, would be much appreciated.

Thanks!
