V-Day Love and Regular Love!

I can’t believe our V-Day event is already a week past! To everyone who came out to see us I have but one thing to say:

We had an absolute ball and were quite touched at the sight of so many people supporting us. You helped us make our V-Day event both successful and meaningful. See? Look at us all pink and happy! (That sounds wrong…)

We’ve got a couple more big shows coming up in the near future: Steamprom in July and A Midsummer Night’s Dream in August. We’re working hard on both of those right now and I’ll have lots more information coming up really soon.

Really really soon because I CAN’T EVEN BEGIN to express how fast this year is going. The Earth really has to calm it’s rotations – I’m getting dizzy over here.

We also just want to throw some real life congratulations into the mix here. In the past 5 months two sets of PiPE DREAM couple have gone and gotten themselves engaged (I KNOW RIGHT?!)

Congratulations to PiPE DREAMer Brigid Martin and Jeff Motta who got engaged at the end of our 3 Ghosts run. And to resident PiPE DREAM musicians, actors, and arrangers Mike Macagnone and Marissa Brozier who got engaged just a few weeks ago.

SO MUCH AWESOME in our little group! We should totes celebrate by riding around in Escalades until the sun comes up.

Then again maybe not.

Gratuitous Gushing and Other News

To quote Elle Woods: OH. MY. GOD. Oh my god, you guys! Thank you so much to everyone who came out to the More Dance event. Not only did we have a great turnout and a stellar performance from our dancers, but the EPIC APPLAUSE at the end of the show might be one of the greatest things I’ve ever heard. It means so much to us to have supporters who honestly enjoy what we put on. The immediate standing ovation and accompanying cheers may very well have been the most enthusiastic response we’ve ever had – and that is saying something. It really does mean the world to us that you enjoyed seeing the show as much as we enjoyed putting it on.

OK I’m starting to ugly cry. Let’s move on, shall we?

We’ve got two (count ’em: TWO) events coming up in April!

The first is our PiPE DREAM Zumba fundraiser.

Come join us Saturday April 14th at the Bronxville Women’s Club for a Zumba class taught by Danielle Moreau and Shannon Wade. There’ll be Zumba, dancing, raffles, a smoothie bar and much more. You can purchase a ticket for just $30 here: (Tickets will alaso be available for $40 at the door.)
More detailed info can be found on the Facebook event page here:

The next is our V-Day event in the city.

Saturday April 28th at Shetler Studios in Manhattan we’ll be performing The Vagina Monologues. Seating is extremely limited, so we are asking that if you’d like to come to reserve a ticket through one of our cast members. Tickets are only $20 and all of the proceeds go to charity. #karmapoints As the event gets closer I’ll have a bit more information for you, so sit tight!

Remember to mark your calendars for BOTH events and I hope to see you there.

Best wishes!

You Can Dance if You Want to

I nearly forgot to share an exciting piece of news with everyone! Well, I suppose it’s news if you only get your news from this site, in which case you should really comment more often – it’ll force me to update more.

Anywho, this Sunday March 25th is the PiPE DREAM Dance event at the Bronxville Women’s Club (insert flail-y Kermit arms here)

Come and enjoy as three different choreographers present their perspective takes on PiPE DREAM music. We have a whole group of dancers, ranging in age and skill set, all working their dancing-butts off to bring you a stellar performance.

side note: I totally cheated the other day and saw a little bit of one of the dances in a rehearsal and it was seriously impressive.

Tickets are $20 (kids under 12 are $5 and kids under 5 are free). Doors open at 7pm for Tea and Dessert and the show begins at 7:30.  If you plan on coming please (pretty pretty please) reserve your tickets by emailing us: tickets@pipedreamtheatre.com.

Get pumped! It’s going to be really really (third time’s the charm) really good.  You don’t want to miss out.

See? If John agrees it must be true. See you all on Sunday!

Updates and Tuna News!

I promised you all a post on all our spiffy updates and BY GOD that’s what I’m going to do! Now if you visit our main page you’ve probably already seen most of the shiny new awesome that exists, but just in case:

Our news page has the rest of our season laid out all nice and pretty for your drooling pleasure.  From this month’s Greater Tuna allllll the way to our Winter show in the city.  Some dates still need to be written in stone, but you can basically gird your loins for a PiPE DREAM event every other month. Things that are awesome indeed.

We also have added lots of new designs and products to our Printfection store. Make sure to click around the different shows, and remember that most of the styles come in multiple colors – so don’t be dissuaded by all the white t-shirts you see on a page.  I personally will be buying ALL THE THINGS and you should as well.

I want to stress the fact that you should all subscribe to our YouTube channel.  There are some great trailers and videos from past shows, and upcoming shows, and there will always be more to come. If you subscribe you won’t miss a thing.

For example:

Yeah! Remember that from last post? Well I’m reminding you again; Greater Tuna is coming up fast.  It’ll be at the Bronxville Women’s club on February 25th at 8pm (preceded by dinner at 7) and on February 26th at 3pm. Tickets at the door are $50 for Saturday and $40 for Sunday. BUT, just for you PiPE DREAMers, if you purchase advance tickets through us you get a discount. (Cue Oprah: YOU get a discount! YOU get a discount! YOU get a discount!) Email tickets@pipedreamtheatre.com and you can get tickets to Saturday’s show for $25 and tickets to Sunday for $20. (Did I mention Saturday includes dinner at 7?) You MUST email us if you want the reduced ticket price. Hooray!

Trust me you want to see this show. It’s going to be HILARIOUS. See? All caps word? Must be true.  Plus if you don’t come then our two actors will be forced to simply talk to each other in Spanish and luchador masks for two hours. And while I’m sure they’d enjoy that, it would appear quite pathetic to the rest of us.

Right. So. For the TL;DR crew:

  1. Schedule your 2012 PiPE DREAM season – shows and dates will continue to be posted on our website!
  2. Buy our stuff – it’s made of awesome (and cotton and plastic and all sorts of other material)
  3. Subscribe to our YouTube channel
  4. GREATER TUNA!

Thanks for all of your support and reading guys!

As they say in my hometown, don’t forget to be awesome.

Greater Tuna: Coming VERY Soon!

Greeting PiPE DREAMers!

I come to you today, on the most holy of all American holidays, to remind you of the second most exciting event taking place this February.

PiPE DREAM theatre is performing Greater Tuna at the Bronxville Women’s Club on Fenruary 25th and 26th!  This hilarious comedy about a small, quirky town in Texas, features over 20 different characters, but only two actors. (Say WHAT?!)

The fine characters of Tuna, Texas were so excited about these upcoming performances that they made 3 trailers for you all to enjoy, and put them up on our YouTube page. If you’re not subscribed to us (and really that’s just blasphemous) you may have missed them so I’ll embed them below.

 

 

 

See what I mean – HILARIOUS!

So stop what you’re doing right now.  Walk away from the nachos, put Jim Nantz’ commentary on pause, and go mark your calendars for February 25th and 26th.  It’s not to be missed.

As a quick afterthought, we’ve made some significant changes to our website, and added new merchandise to our Printfection store (all links in the link tab).  I’ll be sure to detail all of the cool new things to check out, as well as hammer down the details for the rest of our shows this year, but for now I want you all focused on the Super Bo I mean GREATER TUNA!

 

phew.  that was close.

3 Ghosts Coast to Coast

First thing’s first: http://www.telecharge.com/BehindTheCurtain.aspx?prodid=8672

You know what to do.

(Although just in case you’re unsure; you should click that link and purchase your tickets to 3 Ghosts.)

Next! We have an exciting bit of news regarding 3 Ghosts’ west coast premiere.

Ooh. West Coast…


The show is going to be performed by the El Segundo High School in California starting December 9th. That means that the completed version of 3 Ghosts will be simultaneously having its off-Broadway, west coast, and high school debut. Seriously exciting stuff!

Annnnnnd since you’re still here reading this may I suggest you also head over to the fan photo page and prepare to fill your daily cute quota. Not for the faint of heart – it’s that cardiac-arrestingly adorable.

Hope everyone had a happy Thanksgiving – we’ll see you soon!

New Videos Posted and a 3 Ghosts Update

We’re getting down to the thick of it guys!  There is only one show left for us this year and it’s the big’un. 3 Ghosts is just around the corner.

In related news: BUY YO TICKETS NOW! Please. Oh look. Here’s a handy dandy link for you click on: http://www.telecharge.com/BehindTheCurtain.aspx?prodid=8672

On to the videos!

First up is the entirety of The Tell Tale Heart from Masque of the Red Death.  This might have been my favourite of the stories in the musical but shh that’s a secret. That’s Kevin Hurley taking lead on that, folks, and it’s pretty awesome.

Next we have a compilation of our 2010-2011 season so far. We have scenes from Greater Tuna, Macbeth, A Musical, Twelfth Night, Masque of the Red Death, and Sleepy Hollow (as well as a few extra bits).  All edited up for you in bite sized form by the crazy talented Collin Simon.  Seriously dude, is there anything you can’t do?

It’s a little insane to think about just how much we’ve already done in a year.  PiPE DREAM would like to thank all of our fans, friends, and followers who have helped us have such a great time.  None of this would be possible without you guys.

That said, make sure that in addition to watching the videos here, you head over to youtube and watch, like, favorite and comment on them (it really does help), AND subscribe to our channel. Look a wild link has appeared in your path! http://www.youtube.com/user/PiPEDREAMtheatre#p/u

You never know if you’ve missed a different video that we posted in the past (particularly if I neglected to draw your attention to it [insert rage face here])

Thanks again guys, and keep an eye out for more 3 Ghosts news to come.

Have I mentioned tickets are available to buy? https://www.telecharge.com/onlineBoxOffice/show.aspx?prodID=8672
