I thinks it’s pretty common knowledge at this point that Theatresports has been going through a lot of changes recently. Since the beginning it’s been Megan Choritz‘s baby and she’s been the perfect mother – nurturing but ready with a firm hand when it’s needed. Her decision to take a well deserved break from it has shaken up the group a lot. For myself I miss her focus and drive at class especially. Megan teaches from the front and learns as she instructs, a rare and great strategy.
The biggest change however is that the way Theatresports is run has shifted on to the shoulders of the remaining senior members. I am now in charge of PR and marketing. Scary. It’s a position with a lot of responsibilities and a lot of tasks. Most of them I like, photoshopping and designing and dreaming up ideas. Some I find a bit of a schlep, like the administration of updating listings and press clippings.
Over the next 2 weeks we’re going to be preparing for a press push – the fundamental part being new printed materials. Our budget is modest right now because it needs to be distributed across several new sectors – updating our company registrations, keeping our license with the International Theatresports body and putting up a new website.
The team are definitely not short on passion or ideas though, the key will be following through on all these great plans.
Life is crazy.
One thought on “Selling Points”
Hard for me to read this, but also really, really cool. Miss it like crazy.
