"April is officially National Humor Month, a month to celebrate the joy and laugher in life. Conveniently, it's also Stress Awareness Month, which makes it an ideal time to laugh away the stress in your life! Kicking things off with April Fools Day and ending with National Honesty Day, April is a fun, nurture-your-psyche month, all month long!"
Here is what is happening in April with our MTVarts world . . .
Diane and Corey hosted the audition help session at St. Paul's Episcopal Church. Scott, Jen and Leah are handling the online audition registrations for THE MUSIC MAN, all the contracts are signed and rent paid for the Memorial. Join the parade April 20 . . . and AUDITION!
Aaron and Steve deconstructed the barn donated by Dana's mother - thanks Linda, never thought I would be writting an in-kind receipt for a barn - and it is now at the warehouse ready to be transformed. Check out the director and actor blogs on The Classic Series OF MICE AND MEN. My calendar is marked and I am eager to see the finished show, join me and invite your friends.
JJ and his production team are hard at work with the ground work of production planning. The kids are selling bracelets, planning an art show and brainstorming for other ways to raise awareness and fund raise. Bruce is wrangling all that creative energy to help the kids pull together a cohesive vision for the show.
We received great news that the folks at Theatrical Rights Worldwide as well as the composers/lyricists/ playwrights Mark Freidman and Janet Vogt will be flying in for HOW I BECAME A PIRATE in September. The author Melinda Long is also trying to clear her calendar to join us. Seeing the support mount is a little overwhelming. Dreams become reality when someone believes! JJ, it is really happening! Come in September and witness first hand what believing can accomplish.
Partners are busy as well. Matt received the letter awarding NEITZSCHE ATE HERE entry into the Montreal World Film Festival. Ian is directing LEADING LADIES at the Alcove and Leah is directing ANYTHING GOES at the Naz.
So let's be honest, if you need to relieve stress, laugh or celebrate joy, you should look to MTVarts.
