Shameless Promo

We've been madly preparing for our annual Christmas show since October.... only another couple of weeks of crazy rehearsal schedules and it will be history and I can get back to planning for my own Christmas.
Meanwhile, we have to sell tickets.
And what better way to get the word out to the community than to participate in the town Santa Claus Parade?

The Intrepid Parade Walkers
So we hitched up the big sign, decorated it with some garlands, put on our festive promotional  teeshirts and Santa hats and marched along Main Street handing out 1000 flyers promoting the show.

Each flyer included a $5 off coupon.

Hmmmm... let's do the math....... If everyone who got a flyer decides to buy a ticket, I think we'll have to put on a whole week of shows instead of the two shows that are planned.

Wouldn't it be nice if you could get it going for a week ... or more! (Of course your Chrsitmas preparations would suffer.) :-)

That's a great way to advertise, Sham! Good for you. I'll be eager to hear how may shows you end up doing. :) Hang in there.

Oh I wish I could be there to see it. From your past posts I know this one will be even better.
Have a wonderful show.

I can't see the date of the show, on the sign, so maybe you already had it? In any case, if it is yet to come, I wish you great and good luck! If it is past, please post photos and/or video!

I wonder how the show is going. It's cool how you do all these events. I like to hear about that kind of stuff. I'm sure your community is better for it.
