happy birthday to you.

the anniversary shows are coming up at the beginning of the month.
i am seriously considering giving everyone in the audience cupcakes. i also wish that we could have ordered 2009 NCT clappers, but i was not allowed... what with these trying economic times and all. clappers are a luxury item.

also thinking of what games could be the most fun to play in the special anniversary shows. i am open to suggestions.

phoenix improv festival

pif was fun.
tursday night is 'arizona showcase' night, so all of the arizona teams get to play. dorian and i got there right at 5 and posed for an awkward picture. there were lanyards. we got our own little dressing room with our name on the door and a basket of goodies contaning, among other things, tampons and goldfish crackers. a nice touch.

we didnt go on for a long long time so we hung around and wached alot of the other troupes perform. when we did go on there was a misunderstanding of some kind and we thought we had 45 minutes when we only had 30. which made it weird when we got yanked off the stage while we thought we had another 15 minutes to kill with awesome improv comedy. not a big deal, but we surely would have planned differently if we knew better. poor dorian barely even got to play.

but that was the only shaky thing that happened. it was a fun time. the folks who put that thing together really do a good job. i wish i was able to see some of the other shows this weekend, weirdass in particular. i met stephanie weir really breifly when i was working at mad tv and she was very cool.

p.s. i will re write this tomorrow and it will be better because i will not be stupid tired.

neck and neck

we have been nominated in two categories on azcentral.com's BEST poll: Best Live Theatre Venue and Best Theatre Company.

in the Best Theatre Company race we have been neck and neck with the Valley Youth Theatre, we'd gain a point and then they gain a point. its maddening. but i've been doing my best to encourage everyone i know to vote for us in both categories, but in Best Theatre Company in particular.

everyone knows who Valley Youth Theatre are. they are well established and they have nothing to lose if they dont win this category in this poll. NCT, on the other hand, is up and coming. we are new. we are young. we are still scratching our way in there and pulling ourselves up by our patriotic american bootstraps.
we need this win. to win in our first year of business would be fantastic.

if you know me, be prepared for me to encourage you to vote.

Today, April 15th, is the last day.
