Happy 2013 – Do You Miss Us Yet?

It’s been a while kids, I know. You’re all sitting at your desks just

I know. I feel you. And if it helps, I missed you too!

First of all, a quick but giant thank you to everyone who came out and supported us in 2012. Sleepy Hollow and Steamprom, More Dance and Midsummer – every event you came to or supported was that much more impressive because of you. I’m getting sappy aren’t I. Well then here this just about sums up my feelings:

A couple of notes: we’ve got lots of media (mainly images) from all of our shows on our Facebook page. I can only assume that you all have already liked that page as Mark Zuckerberg owns our lives completely. But in case you have resisted the siren call: go ahead and like our page! It’s nifty! And here’s a handy link: http://www.facebook.com/pipedreamtheatre.

And. AND! We are already planning out our 2013 season. There’s a lot of awesome coming down the pipe and you aren’t going to want to miss out on it. If maybe checking a blog on occasion is something you forget to do (similar to how I forget to update on occasion) you may want to sign up for our newsletter to keep abreast of all we have forthcoming. Simply send an email to info@pipedreamtheatre.com with Newsletter in the subject line and we’ll add you to the mailing list. It only comes out about once a month, so no need to fear spamming.

As for the awesome? Well a lot of it is still being worked on so it’s a secret. So secret in fact that it’s a secret from me! I KNOW! Understandable though, since my outward expressions of excitement have been known to take out eyes and burst eardrums.

It’s going to be a good year.

Midsummer Recap

Heeyyyy youuuu guuuyyyysss!

So I peaced out for vacation right after Midsummer ended and have been playing catch up with life since getting back , so apologies for this blog being late (but you’re used to that by now, yeah?)

Anywho just wanted to say THANKSEVERSOMUCH to all who came out to see our little show. We had such a fun time putting it on, and were honestly sad when it ended. Also we only got rained out once which is a lot luckier than we normally are so kudos to Mother Nature on that one.

We don’t have action shots yet (still working on those to make them all prettified) but we do have our cast shots that we took after our Saturday night show. And those are all shmancy to look at below #slideshowFTW

Look out for more new and awesome things ahead. Seriously, look out. I don’t want anyone injured by the train of new and awesome about to plow its way through here.

Massive Info-Dump of Awesomeness!

So as the title so eloquently informs you this post is going to be a LONG one (because some of us are bad at time management.) Make sure to keep on scrolling!

Firstly:

Thank you so much to everyone who came out to Steamprom! We had a BLAST and I’m sure you did too. I don’t mean to put words in your mouth, but you know it’s the truth. I mean look at these pictures!

See? ALL THE FUN!

Nextly:

New fan photo! One of our fearless leaders took her PiPE DREAM shirt on a cruise (it fit better in her suitcase than I did. I obviously lost that attempt at a sneaky vacation.) Head over to the Fan Photo page to see the awesome.

Lastly:

MIDSUMMER!

Yes, it is upon us. A Midsummer Night’s Dream premieres next Thursday at Bronxville. And I gotta be honest – it’s funny. Like actually funny. I don’t mean it’s a Shakespearean comedy and we should all do well to have a chuckle over the syntax funny. It has actual laugh out loud moments that will have you in stitches. Or busting out of stitches if you already have stitches to begin with. You know what? If you have stitches I would suggest skipping out on this one.

Also if you notice the details on the poster, tickets are only a suggested $5 donation so there’s that. You can’t even park at the beach for $5! We’ll be performing in the garden (if it rains the show is still on, just moved inside) and you are welcome to bring any food or beverage you like to enjoy during the show! Adult beverages even!

Seriously, unless you are rocking some heavy duty stitches I wouldn’t miss out on this one.

Steamprom Update and Contest = AWESOME!

Steamprom! STEAMPROM! You guys – it’s this Saturday! PAARRRRTTYYYYY!

Remember to get your tickets ahead of time at: http://www.woovite.com/steamprom You’ll be saving yourself $10! Also, I mean, really, buying things off the internet is all the rage, so you should want to buy these ahead of time. Admit it: you need the cool points.

Something else I feel honor bound to mention is that you don’t have to come dressed all Steampunk-y. I mean you can – I plan on looking like a crazy person. But what we want more than you coming dressed in gears and lace is you coming and having fun! So come whatever you wear. Sundress? Perfect!  Furry? Strange, but I’ll allow it. Yankee t-shirt and jeans? Go forth! I’ll be giving you death glare personally, but that nothing to do with how good you look in those Levi’s and more to do with my deep seated hatred of the Bombers. So yeah – the clothes don’t matter us. Just come and party and all will be good.

We also have a contest running – YEAH! If you follow our Facebook Page you’ve seen that we need a good URL for Liz’s website and Lizmuller[dot]com is already taken. Reply in comments with you suggestion either here or on FB and the winner will receive an arms-length of raffle tickets for Steamprom. Which you know you want because our raffles are EPIC.

Steamprom also got itself an article in the Bronxville Daily Voice – CLICK TO READ!

I hope to see you all this Saturday – be it in your costumes, sundresses, or jeans. (I’ll just be averting my eyes from your torso, you Jeter-loving crazy pants.)

Full Steam Ahead – Steamprom is Almost Here!

Another blog post? Already? Why that’s just absurd, why would I do that?

(I’ve been DYING to use that gif, thank you for letting me get away with it)

OK so in all serious, this is HUGE news, guys! Steamprom is officially less than a month away, on July 14th. Four weeks until the greatest summer party ever! (next to the ones from the 50s where everyone just does the twist for hours on end and apparently Elvis shows up – those always looked like a blast, daddio.)

For all your information needs see below: (ooh official!)

You can purchase tickets, as well as PiPE DRINK bracelets for those of you 21 and over, here: http://www.woovite.com/steamprom in order to enjoy the pre-order discount.

If you’ve been to one of our fundraising bashes before you know a better time really isn’t to be found anywhere. Costumes, contests, BOSS RAFFLES, merch, INCREDIBLE food, and a brand new performance of Distorted music.

Honestly I don’t think I’ve ever been more excited for anything than I am for Distorted, volume 3 (and while we all know that’s not technically true as I am a nerd of ridiculous proportions, you can believe my sentiment is genuine)

So make sure to get your tickets now! You can also check out the Facebook event and share your enthusiasm here: http://www.facebook.com/events/161365900655149/

And FYI – I plan on winning Steamprom Queen – just letting you know. You best bring your A game kids. *cue mic drop here*

The First of Many Updates

Hooray! I love updates! I love them because I get to remind you all of all of the awesome things we’ve posted that you should check out and all of the even awesomer things we may have coming up. Huzzah!

I’m in a good mood today, can ya tell?

FIRST of all, have you watched the full video of More Dance yet? Cause you should. Yes, I know. It’s been out for a while, but um hello we’re doing UPDATES!

And while I’m embedding YouTube videos, I have to remind, beg, implore you even, to watch it on YouTube. To subscribe to our channel there and comment and like the video there. I know it sounds silly, but it helps us out a TON. Trust me on this: I majored in being on consistently on the internet.

If you enjoyed More Dance (and as you are human and have a beating heart I’m going to assume you did) and don’t mind clicking on another link I’m going to send you to like a page on Facebook. Diana Pettersen, one of our three choreographers from More Dance, has a page up, for you to check out here: http://www.facebook.com/PettersenChoreography So head over there if you don’t mind. *bats eyelashes*

That’s all for this one – I don’t want to flood you with too much instruction (AWESOME instruction). There is a ton of information about our next two shows coming down the pipe shortly, so keep an eye out for that.

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.
