The New and Improved TurningThirty.org

Yes, I am a geek. I can't help myself. As I mentioned before, I'm now working with someone who is helping me with marketing my musical Turning Thirty, and we agreed that its website needed to be updated. It is pretty much complete, and much more representative of the actual show we have been producing now for the past year. So go check it out and let me know what you think. Visit the new and improved TurningThirty.org.

Turning Thirty Show - October 9th

Image
I'm excited to report that shows number 3 and 4 of Turning Thirty have officially been booked. Pictured here is the venue of number 3 coming up on Friday, October 9, at noon at the American Cancer Society Center in downtown Atlanta. The theater is booked, rehearsals are scheduled, and my awesome marketing machine has begun its churn. (I say that sarcastically, though I now actually do have professional help...) Next week several of us will visit the 400+ seat theater to discuss the logistics. A whole lot of prep goes into one of these shows.

I am planning to give you a bit of a behind-the-scenes look with regular postings so you can see what goes into a performance of this show. This next one will be a fundraiser for the American Cancer Society (ACS), geared toward staff of ACS and all the folks working downtown near Centennial Olympic Park. It will be a musical showcase, with the showtime shrunk to one hour and an optional panel afterwards with me, the cast, and a guest from ACS…
