And now a word from the President (pro tem) ...
Back in January, Pamela and I got together with a small group of our friends, and discussed the possibility of forming a new theatre company. This discussion (at a Denny's, no less) was the culmination of many private conversations that had been taking place over the preceding months.
I am proud to announce the formation of our company:
I have been entrusted by my fellows with the responsibility of serving as President, pro tem of the Board of Directors (hence the photo of gravitas-exuding-Executive Drew at the top of this blog entry.)
Our Mission Statement:
At its core, the mission of Theatre Unleashed is simple: to work together as one, passionately and professionally, in creating truly remarkable theatre. Theatre Unleashed celebrates the creative collaboration process by encouraging its members to explore fresh, edgy, thought-provoking approaches to both original works and established shows. Theatre Unleashed will experiment with various forms of multimedia to heighten the entertainment experience while staying true to the playwright’s words, characters and thematic intent. Story-telling will always be the driving force behind any Theatre Unleashed production as the company pledges to always push its artistic boundaries, striving to reach that emotional resonance with our audience that only live theatre can create.We are in the (very) formative stages at this point, filing our paperwork and raising our funds. We have a season scheduled, and we have some very exciting things in store. But more about that in the coming weeks! In the meantime, I invite you the reader to visit our MySpace page and befriend us.
It's going to be a wild ride. I'm just happy to be here!
