Chairman's Blog - May 2019
With only 8 weeks to go until opening night, the show is really starting to shape up and we are proud of the amazing work our talented cast are producing in the rehearsal room. With Act 1 blocked, we are now working through Act 2 and are not far away from setting one of the biggest numbers in the show; 'Freak Flag'! Keep your eyes peeled for some sneaky rehearsal shots that will be appearing over the next few weeks.
Ticket sales are looking very positive at present; we have already sold well over 2,500 tickets so far. As we move into the final months, the committee are increasing publicity efforts for the show and further banners, posters and flyers will be appearing across Leicester to promote Shrek. We will be at the Leicester Riverside Festival on Saturday 1st June to promote the show and will be once again appearing on BBC Radio Leicester over the next few weeks. You can also catch us at Loughborough's Picnic in the Park on Saturday 8th June, where we will be performing a few numbers from the show! If any of our members or friends of LAOS have any ideas on how we can promote our show further, please email us; email@example.com
We are also really excited to invite members and friends of LAOS to our very first Musical Theatre Quiz Night, taking place on Saturday 18th May at 7pm. Tickets are £5 each and the price also includes a spot of food. Teams should be no larger than 8 and questions based on musicals will be asked in a variety of 'entertaining''* ways! Friends and family are welcome. Please contact the a member of the committee if you are interested in joining us.
*Disclaimer, LAOS cannot guarantee you will be entertained, but we will try.
