The final show was awesome. The cast and crew did a great job bringing it home. Enough money was raised to pay for the services to record the video and have it edited for distribution. Admittance was free for all Morgan students with a valid school ID and $5 for general admission. So...the amount of money we raised was a healthy amount to pay for costs for the production and for video editing services. Yeay!
My lovely cast
Our casting party was after the last show. Everyone in the show had up to two people present who was there to support them. The cast circled up to give thanks and give testimony of what the highlights were for them throughout the preparation of the show. It was an almost tearful moment for everyone but the mood was lightened with fun pictures and good food.
The final show was recorded and will be the show that will be on DVD. DVDs of the show will be available soon for purchase for $5. Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
