First, I want to take a second to say 'Thank You' to everyone who's friended us on Myspace. Your interest in and support of Phase 3 Productions is greatly appreciated. Please take a moment to check out our web page. (www.phase3productions.org) Not only can you make a secure donation, but we're going to constantly update it with information. Things are very exciting for us here at Phase 3 Productions. Things are coming together very quickly and we've got lots of exciting events coming down the pipe. I'll get to those shortly, but first I want to take a moment and tell you what we're all about.
Phase 3 is something special. "Theatre, Evolved." isn't just a blurb for us. Phase 3 is founded on a few basic principles. Theatre should be fun. It should be accessible. It shouldn't end at the door, but should engage the community. When you combine these qualities, you get theatre that is entertaining and socially aware. This is the theatre that Phase 3 Productions is going to bring you. You deserve it.
The process for getting a company like this off the ground isn't an easy one. Choosing a season, exploring spaces, and making a show are all fun tasks. There's also the filing of paper work, the significant investment of time and money in becoming a non-profit organization, trying to raise capital, and even the work of finding a good deal on printing posters. Luckily, we're a dedicated group.
That said, we need your support to make this work and there are many ways you can give it. It's easy to make a donation using your debit or credit card on website. Even a dollar will help us bring great theatre to you. Also, be sure to tell your friends about us. Direct them to our Myspace page so that they can get updates and learn about us too. Finally, please drop us a line anytime if you have questions, comments, or kudos. We want to hear from you!
Our inaugural season – Women Behaving Badly – will be announced shortly. Just a few details need to be worked out, but we're all buzzing with excitement here. To whet your appetites though, we've got a couple of announcements.
