The theatre cancelled the rest of the season because we just weren't getting the audience.

So, yeah, I'm bitterly disappointed - we'd made some changes to the show and it was really working well at least for the two performances we managed to have this year.

So Tweatre is on hiatus. It's not dead - it's in for retooling and we hope to bring a version of it back later in the year.

We're running Tweatre at the Friend in Hand in Glebe tonight. 8pm and $20 if you can make it. I'll be at the back of the room running the tech (or rocking it, as the kids these days say. Maybe.)

This is kind of a test run to see if we can score a monthly residency.

Keep an eye on the @Ferknerkle twitter stream if you want to see what we're doing. Hopefully photos to follow

Has been getting some very good reviews:

Express Media

Adelaide Now

Rip It Up (it's about half way down)

And one that kind of missed the point:

New Adelaide Theatre (the show was never designed to be purely comedic, but, oh well.)

And here's Brenton talking about the show on Festival Fishbowl:

I'm so proud of them - hopefully we can get a regular Sydney gig after this.

Last night's rehearsal of Tweatre went really well.

Tonight should be fantastic.

Last night I set up the technology for Lewis to run Tweatre for the next Sydney shows and the Adelaide run. Although he was unfamiliar with Macs he got it very quickly.

We're having a fundraiser for Tweatre at the Roxbury Hotel in Glebe this Friday at 7:30. Here's the Facebook event. Hope some of you can make it.

Next week, there'll be two shows at the 505 Theatre in Surry Hills   (FB link) on Wednesday and Thursday. I can't make it, but it will be a good test for the Adelaide show.

And then a week's run in the Adelaide Fringe from the 5th to the 11th of March! (FB link)

Then... maybe we can get it running regularly in Sydney.

It's good (but strange) to let the show go and watch it develop. I've been carrying the idea for years, and now it's out in the wild on its own.

This is the promotional clip Brenton put together for the Tweatre show in Adelaide.

I'm in this very briefly.

So we've finally gone and done it and Tweatre has had it first night in front of a paying audience.
I feel really fucked, and still shat off at having to fight to get people to tech the show ([livejournal.com profile] murasaki_1966 will be teching tomorrow night's show, thank goodness) but the damn show worked.
The cast did spectacularly - especially as none of them had done impro in front of an audience before. We had a small crowd but they went home happy, so hopefully we'll get at least one full house before the end of the run.
I've done a radio interview (for Eastside Radio - it will be on the arts show on Thursday) which I'm happy with (though that depends on how it's edited) and I guess I'm just a teensy bit overwhelmed that something I've had in the back of my mind for so long has finally emerged and worked pretty much how I thought it would.
And hopefully we can build on its potential to make it something truly astonishing.
Thanks to Claire, Elliott, Lauren and Olivia for being so brave and funny and talented. Brenton is also in there, but as co-producer he convinced me to do the show and helped get everything together, so it really wouldn't have happened without him, and thanks to Mal for his support, encouragement and wisdom (also his talent - but we get to see that tomorrow night.)
But most of all - thanks to [livejournal.com profile] ferkster for introducing me to them.
Ferknerkle forever!
(and remember, it's not too late to book!)
