Nothing makes my head feel better than working with competent, talented people doing what they like to do.

Today was the trailer shoot & publicity photo shoot for Beggar's Opera.

I am a happier woman than I was this morning.

Dateline: [livejournal.com profile] much_ado

the reviews (at least those i've seen across LJ) of the show have been overwhelmingly positive. even the Record's review of our problem-plagued Opening Night was gently positive.

this has translated to great word-of-mouth sales, and both the friday and saturday shows of this middle weekend sold out completely, with ~90% of the seats sold on reservation or presale. this means it's highly likely all three shows next weekend will also sell out fast. walk-in ticket availability just doesn't seem to be happening, so don't count on getting tickets that way.

ergo, if you'd like to come see the show before it closes on saturday BOOK YOUR TICKETS RIGHT NOW.

Kitchener-Waterloo Little Theatre proudly presents:

Les Liasions Dangereuses, by Christopher Hampton

at the rebuilt Kitchener-Waterloo Little Theatre, located in Uptown Waterloo at 9 Princess St. E.

In her performance of 'Les Liasions Dangereuses', Director Karen Grierson moves the story from its origins in pre-Revolutionary France, to Jazz-Age Paris of the 1920s. When asked about her experiences directing this provocative play, Grierson had this to comment: )

Got this second hand, but apparently the shows that I directed and produced for KWLT last year? Profit was $15K.

Not bad.

What happens when you have a sexy play, a brilliant director and a film crew of pure geniuses....

I love getting to play with the folks I do....

Ladies & Gentlemen - the teaser trailer for LLD - I suppose there's a NSFW if you happen to work in a VERY VERY conservative environment - then again, this is a play where sex is a major element.

I'm currently waiting for the final HQ version of the trailer to be delivered to my hot little hands from My Hero.

Once I have that, up Youtube it goes, and then here, FB, eventually the KWLT website, and everywhere else I can think of....

Yes, I'm excited...

Hello all,

As you may know, we've been doing a number of painting/build days lately. That's because we're aiming to open our first production in OUR space, Les Liaisons Dangereuses, in early July.

To do that, we have to have our occupancy permit, as I understand it, by the end of the month.

[livejournal.com profile] oldgrover has been working almost day & night to make this plan a reality, but he really needs your help. In the last while, we've seen a dip in the number of volunteers coming out to help paint.

We need you. Heck, I need you. I truly want to see this magnificent play performed in a stage space that belongs to all of us. To bring home a show to the space that has meant so much to me over the past 18 years.

If you can spare some time, please - come out and help us get ready to be in our own space again. Our home.

You will have the profound thanks and appreciation of a grateful cast, crew, director and producer.

And I'll owe you one.

Anita
Producer

Hee.

I have the sexiest friends ever. The ones on camera. The ones off. The ones who write my scripts. The ones who film. The ones who keep the police at bay.

I can't wait to show you the final version....

Today was filming the trailer for LLD. Other than watching [livejournal.com profile] much_ado baffle police with fancy footwork, and getting sat on by my camera crew, it was pretty much a lovely day in the sun with very talented silly people.

Now N gets to do the hard work of actually editing it together (thank gods for people who know what they're doing). I have to send him artwork, but it's good otherwise.

And I got to do VO work - yay for getting to use the 3am sultry voice! And I know I was doing it right based on at least one of the comments I got.

Trailer coming as soon as N has it done and we've proofed it.

So FightGuy & I went up to Elmira Theatre Company's space today.

I have to say, dear gods, but I wish we did Musketeers there instead of St. Jacobs.

Drawbacks: It's in Elmira. There's no proscenium. If you're backstage and not in the greenroom, you have to be QUIET, because the sound carries really well. They don't have blacks, so we'd have to deal with that ourselves, if we needed them.

Advantages: 40' wide, by 24' deep. 24 channel programmable board, with 40 dimmer circuits and a lot of lights (the lighting guy that was there was new and was still inventorying the lights - I'm getting a list soon). 5 pipes for the lights, with another 3 outlets in the back of the stage at ground level that can be hooked into the board. Sound system (2 CD setup, as opposed to the computerized stuff we've been using with KWLT), with 2 speakers, with jacks & more speakers if we want them. Greenroom has a washroom that's dedicated for the actors. We can use their risers & flats - risers - return to the way they were, flats - don't cut, don't wallpaper, otherwise, sure, whatever. We can screw to the deck!!! Raked seating - roughly 152
seats. The space is available for the summer 2010 slot I was aiming for.

It's about $500 less per week than the Registry, without the extras that Registry charges. It is entirely doable - if we can get 100-120 people at St. Jacobs, we can get that in Elmira. Current figures put it at needing about 13 people per night to break even for the space, and the space is the biggest cost.

I'm now working on getting buy in from the current stakeholders for Shrew, but...yah, I think I've found the space.
