If you’ve been following this blog you’ve likely read how much effort we’re putting into getting The March of the Kitefliers launched into a spotlight a lot wider than Tampa’s. We like you guys, no offense, but we do really believe this thing has legs and we want to share it with the world.
We’ve been sending scripts and kits to theaters far and wide, we’re inviting every artist that has anything to do with film or stage that we can find, and we’ve been soliciting both stage and screen producers.
I found out yesterday that two very, very big NY theater producers are planning on coming opening weekend. This is monumental. The kind of thing that even makes me a titch nervous. I’m not naming names and associations publicly just yet, because I don’t want to jinx it and I’d rather wait til they have their tickets – it’s down between two dates right now. But this is huge, huge news. Huge.
Cross your fingers, folks. And please get your tickets in advance. Those of you who’ve read this blog for a while know how important advance sales are. Those of you who may not know – they are very important. The sooner we get in all those we know we can count on coming opening weekend, the better of an idea we have of what we need to do to fill in the holes around. The sooner we fill opening weekend, the sooner we can push our efforts into filling the latter weekends. Filling opening weekend also ensures that no seats go dead, because once the performances pass, there’s just no way to make up that lost revenue. This helps us spend our time and energy in the most effective way, and ensures we can squeeze every dime out of a production we can – which is imperative considering how we keep our prices down with a limited inventory and meaningful financial support outside of those sales.
You can all be part of history here. We may all be part of history. I’m not counting chickens, I’m keeping my head up in the clouds while my feet stay here on the ground. I’m full of hope. The March of the Kitefliers can do that to people. Stay Tuned.
