I have been dreaming for years of bringing live theater to Montrose. I don't think I need to sell you the idea.
I have already spoken to so many restuarant owners on Honolulu Avenue who would do anything they could to support the project.
I know our area is anonymously rife with talent, quietly living amongst us. Hollywood is just down the hill, you know.
And I know that often, actors do no make for good business managers. So the talent thinks it's impossible to be financially solvent.
But then, us folks running insurance offices, restaurants, tech companies, etc., aren't going to be putting on quality shows, unless they'll all be tragic comedies, (See? Bad joke from a financial advisor. I know my limits.)
I think the time might be right to come together. I envision a marquee on that corner with this weekend's show, and a delightful acting school for our kids during the week. Sorry Starbucks.
It's time we met, got to know each other and spark a dream. I want to meet successful actors, directors, producers, business people, restauranteers, moms, coaches and anyone who knows other local people. We can have a talk together.
It's not like I have any time in my life for another hobby. But I can't stop dreaming, and now is the time.
Please send me your phone and other contact information at ImproveMontrose@gmail.com. I will help organize a public dialogue on this.
And by the way, I may have a major corporate sponsor. So I'm not toally dreaming about this. But first thing's first.
