Howdy pardners! Well this past weekend we had our fundraiser with the Playwrights Round Table. We brought in over 60 people this weekend. I know what some of you are saying...60 is a lot for us :) Anywho, we made a tiny sum of money and are trying to think of what to do with it. Chicklets? Or Tic Tacs? Hmmmmm We will be meeting soon to decide which direction to take No Shame here in Orlando.
Hey all...Ok here is the latest Orlando news. We are going on an indefinate break. I have quit Cherry Street Theatre to explore the wonderful world of (paying, wooohoo!) Murder Mystery Evenings. I'm busy producing and performing in this new project. I'll keep y'all updated when I get more news. In the meantime check out the website at www.murdermysteryevening.com (My bio and headshot are there too under Eric Sharp's link, I'z so spacial). Talk to y'all soon :)
Hey all! Just a friendly reminder/update on how things are shaping up here in Orlando. We are starting up again Friday August 8th (sign up 9pm, performances start at 9:30pm) at the Oval (beneath Bar Orlando, corner of Pine and Orange). We will be having a weekly show until we get arrested or kicked out. Our response has been very favorable and we feel our new locatin is going to be a gold mine. So come one come all, and as always monkeys are granted free admission. For all the humans we are asking for a $1 donation to support our crack habit. Remember only the first 15 people to sign up get their 5mins on stage, so be early!!! See ya there!
