May the 8th moves ever closer and so I thought I'd give you a little more information about "The Musical!", which is the show I'll be performing in Edinburgh during this year's Fringe Festival, and which we're previewing at Newcastle Arts Centre in just a few short weeks.
There's a somewhat limited website to read : www.the-musical.co.uk
You will be able to buy your tickets in a couple of days (I need to slice them up and number them first). Tickets are priced at £6 with a concessionary price of £5. However, to keep things easy, I'll charge the concessionary price for any tickets sold through me. £5 - imagine that!
On the 8th, the show will start at 8pm and will begin with a support act, doing some stand-up comedy and generally warming everyone through. Then there'll be an intermission, drinks will be available from the bar, and the show will close with our premiere of "The Musical!" (running time 60 minutes or so). We'll be finished performing in plenty of time to share some congratulatory drinks at the bar.
I hope you will be able to come along and support this show. Taking a show to the Edinburgh festival is a very scary prospect and could lose us a huge amount of confidence and money. If we set off to the festival with the sound of some appreciative audiences still ringing in our ears, perhaps it will be easier to live the dream, rather than pray that the horrendous nightmare ends quickly.
Oh... and it's funny. Really funny. Honestly. You'll laugh. I do.
Thanks for reading.
