My wife is on the board of a theatre company in Denver, which is one of only three theatres in the state that uses full-time professional actors in its plays. They're quite good.

We went to a show this week, and it was kind of an unusual one in that they did four short biographical plays about local celebrities (our Governor, a well-known local singer, former Bronco Reggie Rivers, and a local businesswoman). Between each play, they auctioned off something related - beer with the governor, dinner with Reggie Rivers, etc.

One auction item was different, though. It was a party for 75 people at the theater, and as part of the event they will write and perform a 15 to 30-minute play on any topic you choose. My company is having our tenth anniversary this summer and we'd been pondering ideas for an innovative celebration. My wife looked at each other and thought, "Heyyyy...."

So we bid on it, and we won. We're going to invite a bunch of clients and potential clients to our party and then perform a play about the history of our company. Cool, eh?

I'm hoping they pick a handsome guy to play me.

If they were REALLY cool they'd let you star as yourself in that play.

I think we've finally discovered something more coma-inducing than slide shows of your vacation trips....

Oh...the questions...

Will the soup throwing scene be included? or the bike stealing episode?

Will whomever plays DaFace be painted green? Actually I picture you two as sort of a F a g i n /Artful Dodger type of relationship.



And most importantly.....how will they translate all the hours spent browsing the planet into an interesting stage scene.

Who'll play Bill Sykes?

this reminds me of an episode of "The Office" in which Michael attends an improv class, but the other actors get irritated because he whips out imaginary pistols in every skit and starts shooting people.

Have you thought about starting an Industrial League basketball team? With you at 6'5" amd DaFace at 6'4" you would be a natural.

Or at least make a cameo appearance as a flunkie. The flunkies in Rain Man's sweatshop would probably get a kick out of that.

Maybe he could play the smart, hot chick (intern?) who accepted a job with the company only to turn around a short time before her start date and take a job with someone else. I think Rain Man in drag would make the evening a huge success.

P.S. Sounds like a great idea for a company get together to me in any event. Definitely unusual/memorable.

Can you resend that PM please. I must have missed something. The last PM I got from you stated that she was on the board but never mentioned the name.

cheers!

You should make all the women wear tunic tops and all the men wear those three wolves and a moon shirts...

It's not mine. I kill it and then it comes back. And then I kill it again and it comes back again.

That's a great idea. No one's ever done that before.

Whatever it is, I think it will be performed in the costumes from "Cats".

be careful, once your employees witness what it would be like to wear a cat costume to the office, you may never be able to stop them.

normally, as the boss, you could just fire them if they refuse, but who could fire a cute little cat??(at least with your female employees, it would likely produce the opposite response to see a male wearing that to work... and quick.)

and then you've got a lot to explain it to the clients... have to leave out a saucer of milk... and add litter boxes to the restrooms... train the employees to use them... it just seems like more trouble than it's worth(unless you're into that sort of thing, NTTAWWT)

great idea, though. very unique, should be a lot of fun. good timing

Jeez, what a loser. Maybe you could stop by the hospital on the way home and get a staph infection. That would be really interesting.
