Posted:I know pride is a sin and all that stuff but I don't care...I am so excited I could burst so I thought I would share with my beloved HoPpers.

I just got my own theater!!!!!

Yup, you heard me. After almost 13 years as a professional performer. After years of writing for others. Directing shows for hire. Costuming and designing my shows and taking them where ever would have them, hoping someone would want them....


I never have to fear what the producer will think, or what the director will cut, or if funding will come through.

I only have to worry about getting the place made over (a HUGE task that will take months and probably put me in the poor house -again- for awhile) and I fear the first year, which is when new ventures tend to bomb.

But what I have in my favor is that absolutely none of the shows are traditional theater. They are all something not seen either before or in this area, so I have novelty on my side to get people there and once there....they will just have to fall in love. I won't give them a choice! wink

...And it is one more step to my ultimate dream of owning a diverse theatrical complex.

Anyway, it won't even be close to open until mid to late April. It won't be fully redecorated until much later in the year (dependent on funding) but I needed to simply spread my joy.

1 of my New Years Resolutions off my tick list! wink

Thanks for listening!

Debating on the name.
I have the names picked out for the shows...and a schedule for a couple shows a month starting in April!!!!

And I have the names picked out for my eventual complex but this one kind of blindsided me so I haven't a real name yet.

When I am not using it as a theater I am going to be renting it out as a party hall for weddings and such (I am redoing it in really rich, warm Victorian hues), so I wanted a kind-of middle ground name.

In the tradition of the old castle great halls, where everything took place in the one central room, I was actually thinking about calling it The Great Hall @ Rolling Hills (the building it is in, which is also one of the buildings I lead ghost hunts through, btw.)

What do you think?

I will keep you all updated with fun things like photos and such.
I go next week to get exact measurements on the 4 rooms and the windows (a "hall", a lounge room, a solarium that overlooks a park and hills and then the dressing room).
Any other thoughts?

Congrats Pele!!

I guess I have another reason to get myself to the states now!

p.s. Do us HoPpers get "mates rates" on tickets? wink

My state of mind is not yours to define!

There is a very fine line between "hobby" and "mental illness."

Posted:Of course there's "Mate Rates" silly! Plus entrance into after parties wink

I picked out the colors yesterday. Really rich golds, greens and deeeeeeep, rich reds. Yummy!

I figure it will actually take a year to get it exactly the way I want it, unless I get outside funding. Otherwise a percentage of tickets will go to additional revamps.

And thanks for the name ideas and support.

Okay, Pride=Sin= Pele doesn't care so I am going to continue to add to my good news.

I have been added as a staff writer for Haunted Times magazine with monthly contributions starting in February. I am excited about that.

And my Vaudeville Burlesque troupe just secured exclusive performance art rights (non-music) to one of the areas largest gigs. How cool is that?

Which means I have to do all of the theater stuff, all the directing/choreographing/writing/promotion for my troupe AND get the theater on its feet in a few months!
Okay...I am starting to freak! eek

I guess I will just have to sleep when I am dead wink

Thanks and hugs!
