Listen to the ShowBizRadio Playbill #1 for August 9, 2006 [MP3 2:56 0.8M].

Mike: This is Showbizradio. We’re just talking about some things that have come up in the last few weeks.

Laura: We really enjoyed seeing The Music Man up in Baltimore, Maryland. We live in Woodbridge, Virginia. It was an hour 45 each way. It did make for a really long evening. So we’re looking for for possible guest reviewers to see some of the shows in the Maryland area.

Mike: Also, I’m in a show with the Providence Players in October, The Time of Your Life. Laura is trying out for a show down at Castaways Theatre, The Unexpected Guest. So in the month of October there are going to be three weekends where we will not be able to go out and do reviews. We would definitely like some guest reviewers to review some of the shows that we would usually do.

Laura: If you’re interested in being a guest reviewer, just send Mike or Laura an email and let us know why you are interested in being a guest reviewer.

Mike: At this point we can’t pay you any money, but we can get you free tickets to the show. If you’re going to a show anyway, this would be an easy way to save $30 for tickets to the show.

Laura: We also want to let you know about other resources in the area.

Mike: We’ve been listening to a podcast, Your Neighborhood Stage. It is on the web at Rob and Chris talk about different issues with theatre. Each of their podcasts comes out once a week and is about thirty to forty minutes each time. They do an interview and then they talk about a different issue such as costumes or publicity. It’s really quite detailed and they have several ways to get back in touch with them and share your thoughts and opinions on the issues that they raise.

Laura: So visit

Mike: And our plans for the week. We have several shows. This is a busy week in August. I think a lot of people are trying to get their shows finished out before Labor Day and people start disappearing for vacations. We have a show every night this week. Tonight we’ll be seeing a technical rehearsal for the Rockville Musical theatre Center’s production of Meet Me in St. Louis.

Laura: Wednesday night we will be seeing the final dress rehearsal of Floyd Collins with the Hard Bargain Players.

Mike: On Thursday we will be watching the opening night performance of Phoenician Women by Natural Theatricals.

Laura: On Friday, the Nova Woodbridge Theatre Group will be performing their opening night production of A Doll House in Woodbridge, Virginia.

Mike: And to finish out our week of shows, on Saturday night we will be watching Little Women by the Tapestry Theatre Company in Alexandria, Virginia.

Laura: So we’d like to invite you to come and meet you at any of the public performances, Phoenician Women on Thursday, A Doll House on Friday, or Little Women on Saturday.

Mike: If you’re able to come, we’d love to meet you.

Laura: And now, on with the show.
