It happened! It didn't rain! Thanks for believing!
All of us at The Colonel Mustard Amateur Attic Theatre Company want to express our sincerest thanks to everyone who gave, everyone who spread the word about the show, and all of you who joined us in Lincoln or through the livestream. We apologize for some technical difficulties with the livestream at the end of the show. We wish you could've seen it!
I wanted to tell you about our plan for the future of X Files: The Musical...
1. You can pre-order a DVD of the show or a t-shirt at our official online shop. Many of you are already getting DVDs as part of your rewards package, but please tell your fellow Philes where they can get their own copy! http://thecolonelmustard.bigcartel.com/
2. The footage of the musical will eventually be posted to Youtube. So, even if you don't want to get a DVD, you'll be able to watch the show. However, the DVD will be higher quality than the Youtube version and will also include extras like behind-the-scenes footage and amazing humanimal concept art.
3. In the coming weeks, we plan to professionally record the cast and orchestra performing all the songs from the show. We'll be selling this album on iTunes (and maybe we'll sell a physical CD through our website if people want it). This will be a must-have. The music on the DVD will sound great because our videographer knows his audio equipment - but when we record this stuff in a controlled, indoor environment, it's going to be like hearing a brand new musical. If you love the X-Files, or music, or things that are beautiful, you're going to love the XFTM album.
Thanks again! -aaron
p.s. If you, or anyone you know, is involved in theater and has an interest in performing "X Files: The Musical," please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org to ask about how to get the rights to perform the show!
