Fall 2014 Update - September 12, 2014
We had a great summer this year. Our last show of the summer season was the Helsing Junction Sleepover a few weeks ago. Good News: they plan to continue this tradition next year (contrary to speculation that 2014 was going to be the last). We'll be there next year, "lord willin' and the creek don't rise".
But that ends our scheduled performance season for 2014. All of my attention for the remainder of this year will be focused on 'Alan's Confectionery: the musical'.
I've been talking about this project on line and in concert for over a year now but the script is finally done and the score in nearing completion as well. Our upcoming reading for PDX Playwrights is just a couple of weeks away at Portland Center Stage. This is an invitation only event intended to generate feed back from actors, directors and other members of the local theater community.
That reading will be followed by possible edits and rewrites to the current script, in preparation for the first scheduled public presentation at the Fertile Ground Festival of new theater works in January of 2015.
From there our plan (hope) is that the musical will move into a full production run with a theater company (TBD) here in Portland and/or elsewhere in the US in the fall of 2015.
You can keep up with the latest by following the #alansconfectionery hashtag on Twitter or Facebook (we'll probably post to Twitter more). Or better yet visit our publishing web site dubsquadmusic.net for detailed updates.
Oh, and if you want to donate to the cause I'll love you forever (even more than I already do). You can do so by clicking right here.
ARTB will return to performance mode in March of 2015 to support the release of the soundtrack for Alan's Confectionery. Stay tuned (right here) for more details about that.
Until then, we're wishing you a healthy and happy fall of 2014.
