I'm still looking for Sponsors for Annie Jr.! This is going to be a big show and we need all the help we can get! Contact me if you are interested!!
I am VERY excited about some news that I just got! Nothing is final yet but there is something in the works and I am SO excited about it! Trust me, you all will be some of the first to know when it happens!! I tried to do this before but I guess it wasn't my time. But I know it's my time this time! Stay tuned for this one folks!!
Well that's a wrap for Broadway After Dark! We had so much fun! I didn't get the turnout that I had hoped for but the crowds we did get were great! Again, me getting the word out there about my company is really what I struggle with. Hopefully I'll be able to get the word out about Annie Jr and we will have a great turnout. Now I have about about 2 weeks off! I haven't had 2 weeks off since Christmas! But I have plenty to do in the meantime. The next big thing is National Night Out. There will be over 10,000 people that pass through the night out every year so this is a perfect opportunity for me to spread the word. Plus my friend Erik is making an improv wheel that spins and lands on improv games! That's going to be so fun!
So tomorrow we open Broadway After Dark! AAAAAAHHHHH!!!! I'm excited! And just a little bit nervous too! I rehearsed with my cast today. We finally had everyone there! I am so lucky to have these people do this show for me. Some come from New Bern to do it and I really appreciate it. We have some pretty interesting (and raunchy) Broadway songs in this show! It's definitely going to raise some eyebrows! But to me, theatre is suppose to entertain and it is an outlet for us actors. How cool is it that you can be anyone you want to be onstage? Where else can you do that and it not be illegal?? lol I hope we have a good turnout!
So today we started our rehearsals for Broadway After Dark! I really enjoy doing this show because it gives performers a chance to showcase themselves and do the songs they always wanted to do or try a new song that they never sang before. It's a bunch of my friends from Jacksonville and New Bern. Yes, I said ME! I don't do much performing these days. I haven't performed professionally (meaniing gotten a check for it) in over 5 years. I have been directing during that time. I guess I better dust off the old vocal chords...
