Spring into Summer 2014 - May 20, 2014
Alan Alexander Sr…. St. Louis 1933
Founder of Alan's Confectionary
Things have been extremely busy here at ARTB headquarters. So busy, in fact, that we will be doing even fewer performances this summer and fall. We have been accepting the offers that come in (if they sound like fun) but we have not been actively soliciting dates.
The main reason is that I am gearing up for the upcoming debut of 'Alan's Confectionary'. The first critical reading of the script is scheduled for October 7th at Portland Center Stage for PDX Playwrights. After that, the plan is for a public preview via Fertile Ground in February 2015.
This means finishing and editing the script and score (almost done), putting together the band and recording the music. After the PDX Playwright reading I'll be activity shopping for production partners for Fertile Ground. If you have suggestions feel free to let me know via firstname.lastname@example.org .
The other exciting news is the massive update of our publishing company's website dubsquadmusic.net . The new site now includes a searchable database of all songs in the Dub Squad Music, BMI catalog (ARTB songs included). This will make it much easier to find, buy and/or license our music, including sheet music. Big thanks to Kara Kinley for the redesign and programming. The new site looks and works great! This will be the main place to find updates on Alan's Confectionary this summer.
That's it for now. Be sure to check out our calendar for up coming dates. Hope to see you sometime this summer.
