FROM THE BACK ROW: What You Can Expect!

Posted on June 21st, 2012

Hey DSM Fans!

Here’s an overview of what is coming up From The Back Row: The Interns Perspective.

In the next couple of weeks, we will be doing a lot of exciting things around the Music Hall at Fair Park and we want you to be with us every step of the way.  As we get closer to the opening night of PETER PAN, the excitement and the anticipation of the show is growing.  Coming soon you will be able to watch our personal sit down interviews with not only Cathy Rigby (Peter Pan), but Brent Barrett (Captain Hook), the amazing Darling Children and many other cast members.  Along with a personal video tour of the Music Hall and backstage area, you will also be able to see a special time lapse of the PETER PAN crew setting up the stage and getting ready for the opening night. We will be tweeting live (@dsmusicals ) from Good Morning Texas, NBC, FOX 4, CBS and WFAA during interviews with selected cast members and we will keep you updated when all of this are airing. We are looking forward to the adventures that are coming to the Music Hall at Fair Park.

We’ll also take an in-depth look at what Dallas Summer Musicals does to prepare for the arrival of a show, and everything that goes on during its run at the Music Hall at Fair Park in a piece called, ShowBUSINESS.

Did you know that the Music Hall made its debut on October 10, 1925? Nineteen TWENTY FIVE!!!  Personally, we think that’s incredible! Dallas Summer Musicals began in 1941, with Opera Under the Stars in Fair Park’s Band Shell.  Ten years later, DSM productions moved out of the heat, and into the newly air-conditioned Music Hall at Fair Park.  I am determined to wipe the dust off of our star-studded past and bring it back into the spotlight with Haley’s Hall History.  The list of “greats” who have graced the Music Hall at Fair Park’s stage over its 87-year span is fascinating- Judy Garland, Maurice Chevalier, Carol Channing and Liza Minnelli- to name a few…

Due to the random nature of our day-to-day tasks, Luke and I are usually pinballing around the office.  We have the privilege of mingling with the wonderful DSM staff, and we think it’s time for you to meet them!  Not only will we introduce you to everybody behind the curtain here at DSM, but we’ll also sit down with DSM President, Michael Jenkins in A Minute with Michael.

Be sure to SUBSCRIBE, as we bring the magic straight FROM THE BACK ROW, to you!
