Thanks to the hard working Jamibeth Margolis (exec dir), who did the four year projected budget amidst running tons of auditions in NYC and directing a show, we are well on our way to being incorporated! Check our facebook page and add a comment to that post if you could.
The way it works: Turn in 4-year projected budget to the accountant, Lynne, who looks it over for anything that might not work. Then that all goes to the lawyer, Kelly, who starts the incorporation process.
I understand that doesn't take too long. After that, we have 30 days to hold a board meeting to vote on our by-laws. Both Randy West (artistic dir of The Way Off Broadway theatre) and Todd Olson, (artistic dir of American Stages) sent me their by-laws as examples of what we need. I have performed in shows that they directed. What great guys!
Next? Playing around with all the stuff I learned at the Internet Marketing convention. Reallllllly cool stuff ya'll.
Also made contact with the heads of Conquer Entertainment. Completely innovative way to work with recording artists. What a nice partner they will be with our theatre. I mean, really, who doesn't want to be around famous recording artists who have a multi-million dollar company behind them?
