How wonderful – our production team now includes Jade Finley, who will stage manage the Brisbane season. I met Jade on the shoot for “Cascade Gardens Grand Supreme” when she was 1st AD for the first week, and I am thrilled to have her on board. Jade is about to graduate from QUT with a Bachelor of Fine Arts (Film, TV and New Media Production. More of Jade later.
I have also bitten the bullet (as they say) and set up a crowd funding campaign on IndieGoGo. This is to help with marketing and promotion costs, and to pay for a professional videographer who will record the performance and provide us with great material to continue promoting the show as it goes on tour. If you would like to join the team as a contributor there are excellent perks, ranging from discounted tickets to any performance of “Yes, Because…” to coaching sessions with Dame June (ok it’s really Flloyd, but you know what I mean), and if you would spread the word by sharing this post with your friends and colleagues, and on social media you will likewise earn my undying gratitude.
