We are invited by Amazing Things Art Center to put We Did It For You! on there in January 2018. We are very excited to be in an actual theatre for a performance.
We have worked into a routine to have a full rehearsal in the space we are performing at about 2 hours before the performance. Our rehearsal goes well, and then we sit down for a nice lunch. When we are about to start the performance, it has to be delayed because so many audience members are having trouble parking. We picked the weekend of the Women’s March anniversary to start our performances at Amazing Things. And though it looks planned, it wasn’t. We are in contact with the Women’s March and get some good publicity because of it. We have rented head mics from The Guitar Center so that everyone almost is wearing one. It’s a great performance, and being in a theatre makes me not want to put it on anywhere else again. In the audience is Kate Carney, a former Broadway director and performer. She wants to help us.
The director of Amazing Things asks us to perform regularly and we agree. We write a grant for performing during Women’s History Month in March. Another great performance. And then we agree to start performing regularly in June.
