This has been an AMAZING year for us here at Touch Me Philly Productions. If you had told Amanda or I a year and a half ago that we would have achieved even half of the things we have already accomplished we might not have believed you. We have created new shows, written, directed, performed in, and produced amazing concerts and events all while building a fantastic and meaningful relationship with all of you. It has been a humbling and incredibly exciting experience!
We have been able to grow with every show we’ve done. Better planning, better quality, better, well, everything! This is because we love what we’re doing and we want you to love it as well. We know how much it takes for you to come out and support us with your time and your hard earned money. In that spirit, we strive to take every production another level higher. Bigger and better is our constant goal- we know you wont settle for anything less, and neither will we.
This has brought us to the decision to postpone our production of Charles Busch’s “Psycho Beach Party” until the spring. We want the show to be the very best it can be and get all of the attention it deserves, so we will be kicking off our 2014 season with this amazing production. We will honor any tickets won via our raffles, or earned through contributions or our IndieGoGo page at the spring show. We wouldn’t be in the remarkable position we are in right now without all of you. Touch Me Philly Productions has been a dream coming true for us, and we want the dream to continue in the best way possible!
We still have a some cool stuff coming your way this year: “SINema After Hours” has two more months of shows at The Walking Fish Theatre, and there will be some other exciting announcements about Stabigail and Cadavera coming soon! There are a few other goodies brewing in our cauldrons right now, so keep your eyes peeled here and to our facebook page to get all the information as it is released.
We thank each and every one of you for your ongoing support as we work to continue bringing interesting, interactive theatre and events to you beautiful audiences.
Peace, Love & Theatre Magic,
Alyson & Amanda
