The Watson Diaries has concluded! This morning, we posted the final episode and took our final bows, so to speak. The credits rolled, the theme song played, and we thanked our supporters and turned our gaze forward…
to A Christmas Carol!
We are thrilled to be presenting a dramatic reading of Charles Dickens’ “A Christmas Carol” at the White Church in Elbridge, NY, at 7:00pm, December 22nd. Tickets are only $10, all children under the age of ten are welcome to attend for free, and we so excited to be able to celebrate the season in this way with all our subscribers and supporters!
There’ll be a few familiar faces from “The Watson Diaries” performing, along with our Artistic and Associate Artistic Directors, Miranda and Brien Bianchi. A small cast of just eight actors will be playing over twenty parts! And there’ll be music. And cookies.
… You should probably definitely come.
We’ve also started a Patreon page, where our supporters and fans can contribute as little as one dollar a month to help the Underground keep producing plays and creative content year-round. We are working on achieving our non-profit status, and there are some fees involved in that that we’d love your help in. (It’d also be cool if we could throw our Artistic Director just a little bit of cash. Word has it that she likes coffee, and since she’s usually up pretty late working on Underground stuff after her “real job” is over, she could probably use some. Is “she” writing this right now? Maybe. So what.)
A quick note from our Artistic Director :
I am very proud that as of today, The Underground Players have officially completed a full year of continuous programming. For over twelve months, we have either been in production or pre-production on three separate projects, and that makes me incredibly happy. Over the past year we’ve assembled a beautiful team, full of beautiful people, and I’m getting to watch this little dream of ours grow and grow with each new person and project. I’d like to thank all of our supporters and every single member of our audience – whether you’ve seen a show in person five times, or whether you’ve watched a single youtube video – because we truly couldn’t do this without you. I am so excited to see what the next year will bring. I have some ideas – and I think you’re going to like them.
