I LUV WICKED! LUVS LUVS LUVS IT! I had to see it twice when it came through!

I can't wait to pen Fiora's reaction! I can't imagine her not loving it!

Just wanted to say thank you for continuing to include Eurus in the theater. I wish I had time to play him more, but since I can't I like knowing that the character is still involved in something and i try to make it a point to reference the Shanachie Theater in every post.


Once again, thank you.

Glad to see the latest production's been received well! ::laughs::

Occurs to me that I haven't actually explained the two separate companies operating within the Shanachie, either. Basically, the Theatre Company focuses on the big productions - mainly the musicals - and the Repertory on the smaller - the dramatic plays. While each is performing, the other is rehearsing. When they get together, it'll be for big productions of dramas - mainly Shakespeare until I pull my finger out and actually, you know, create something.

As always, the door is always open for anyone who wants their character to audition. Once you're a part of either company, you stay in my cast list until you tell me otherwise.

Hope everyone's having fun!

Many thanks for involving Katarina and the ballet troupe in Paquita Grand pas Classique! I thoroughly enjoyed it and hope that we can do mash ups again soon!

Thanks for playing along!  I hope that both troupes can continue to work together and put out more great performances.

Awesome job on coordinating the Fine Arts Festival! Everyone had a great time, and I am hearing that the costume party was a blast! :)

Thanks for all of your hard work!

It wouldn't have been half the success it was without the involvement of everyone who volunteered their characters' time and businesses to make it a big event.

Huge, massive, enormous thanks to everyone who got involved, even if it was just lurking! Icons will be coming your way soon!

And the icons for the Festival are in! Check out your inventories - even if all you did was lurk on the night, you've got one!  :grin:

What if you weren't there, didn't lurk, but REALLY wanted to attend in some capacity? Do you get one then?

I am sorry that neither I nor Eless were able to participate in such a terrific event!  I've heard rave reviews and you deserve each and every one of them!
