As the weeks have gone by I am proud to say that, on Twitter OccupyTG now has 95 or 96 followers (sorry I lost count) and 50 something likes on the facebook group. I feel it is important to note that the followers include members of the Occupy movement in several parts of the world and plenty of theatre professionals and critics. This means that we are getting lots of exposure and even if people can't make it to the show we will have plenty of people tuning into the Livestream and watching the show online. The exposure over the last few weeks has grown significantly and the good thing is it is a good mix of friends and family members of the cast and crew, cast and crew members, theatre professionals, critics, participants in the Occupy movement, and a bunch of other people I don't honestly recognize. While I'm on the subject of the Livestream feed I might as well post the link so that you, the readers (and anyone else who is interested) can watch online if your too far away to make it to the show:livestream.4ktech.net/user/occupytg
. Here's two other key links since social media is a key component of our show: our facebook and twitter groups. Make sure to join because we are one of the few plays were we don't say turn off your phones we say "turn on your phones and tweet (or post on the facebok group) about your responses to the performance". The links are the following: Twitter: (twitter.com/OccupyTG) and our facebook group link is: (www.facebook.com/OccupyTheatreGlendon). Once you'll join you'll see our photos as well. During the rehearsals people post photos of the rehearsal online so members of the facebook and twitter groups will get the additional incentive of getting an inside perspective on the rehearsal process. We also have a youtube feed that, at the moment only has two videos but will probably have more stuff as the weeks go by: search: "OccupyTG youtube channel". After all this your probably left with the typical questions of how,what,where,when, how. Well: for a brief summary of the answer to the question "what is it" check out my previous blog entry but, to answer the rest of the questions I'll let this awesome promotion video, made by Andrew (of course) articulate the answers:
To all my fellow cast and crew members, (if your reading this) keep up the good work and keep spreading the work! I'll see you guys soon.
