Welcome to the brand new Emelin Theatre blog!
I am very excited to be writing the first entry in what we at the theatre expect to become one of the best features on our website. As a marketing person, I often tend to sway towards the standard sales pitch when speaking with fans, patrons and benefactors of the theatre, which can often feel impersonal. It is very exciting for me, personally, to be able to reach our audience through a more friendly, informal medium. We started a Facebook page several months ago and received a surge of positive feedback, but more importantly, we realized how much fun communicating more directly can be. So we decided to go completely crazy and extend this communication through a blog and also Twitter (which, I'll admit, I was a little terrified of at first!).
So what we hope to achieve by blogging is to give you a closer look at the Emelin, our staff, performers, curators and all the little things that go on behind the scenes. The voice may change and the format may vary from words to video to photos, but for every entry, please feel free to comment, make suggestions, complain or praise (the latter being the preferred).
By the way, have you seen our line-up for the upcoming season (which starts in less than three weeks!)? We've added a dance series, beefed up our live theatre offerings, booked a huge array of incredible music acts (including a new blues series that I am VERY psyched about) and so much more. Check it out, it's going to be a thrilling season! (I wouldn't be able to sleep tonight if I didn't clue you in at least a little bit!)
Hope to see you at the theatre soon (and please say hi!)
Marketing & Creative Director, Emelin Theatre
