I am proud of the musical Ana and I created together called Ghosted: The Musical.
A year ago I was not in a positive place but bit by bit I began to feel better about life in general. A year later and here I am. I see Ghosted: The Musical as a success. Here’s why:
- We actually did fundraisers. We did an Indiegogo campaign and a couple of fundraiser shows and I also saved up my own money. So we had a decent sized budget.
- We were actually able to pay everyone.
- We had an amazing cast who were not only talented but kind as well.
- We made more money than we spent.
- We made the audience laugh
- Somehow, someway – even with everyone’s busy schedule, we were able to rehearse
- The audience could hear them – mostly – with those boundary mics
- The lighting turned out well – even though the first time we saw them in the context was opening night.
- We were able to make the show under 60 minutes
- We had a really amazing poster design
- We were able to have 14 of our songs in the show
- I loved the choreography
- All the backing tracks
- I managed to work full time and complete all of the above
- I am so grateful to the 400 plus ppl who came to see the show.
So Ghosted: The Musical didn’t win any awards. It was not reviewed by NOW. The review we got brought out the insecure demon fairy in me – even though it was mostly a good review. The influencers had no interest in influencing people to see the show – another thing for the insecure demon fairy freaked out about. The outside world did not give me the validation that I suppose I was craving. But then again it did just not in the way I thought it would. And yet I still think Ghosted: The Musical is a success.
Thanks for sharing in my quiet revolution. 🙂
