The TV Show Theme Song Musical, it's all the songs you love in one musical you'll never forget.
WATCH OUR VIDEO AND THEN READ ON....
We've been working incredibly hard to bring the new musical IT'S ON! to New York City and with your help, we will get there. We've been invited to be the first staged reading performed at this summer's New York Musical Theatre Festival. IT'S ON! will have 3 performances on July 10th and 11th in a beautiful new space, The Alice Griffin Jewel Box Theatre at The Pershing Square Signature Center. To make this production a reality we must raise the additional funds necessary to cover festival fees, rehearsal space, advertising and travel & lodging. But there is so much more, so please give as much as you can. IT'S ON! has already had one hugely successful reading at the Falcon Theatre in Toluca Lake, CA and now after all the re-writes and putting together all of the music it's time for us to be seen by the New York theatre community.
It's On! is a great new musical that Stan and Christian wrote using TV show theme songs to tell the story of two friends who...write TV show theme songs!
The story goes like this: Lucy and Charlie met in college and have been writing music together ever since. They finally have their shot to record their own theme song for a new TV show, if they can get through the day. With the help of two session singers named PJ and Whitley, a too bossy momager named Babs, and the sound technician MORT - It's On! is a fun and funny show that the whole family can enjoy.
Well, I could wax poetic and tell you all of the amazing things about NYMF and how it's a great opportunity for new shows to be seen by the New York Theatre Community and how it can lead to Broadway and other amazing things but, really, I'd love for you to check out their website at www.nymf.org and read up.
YES! Nothing will stop us. Not man nor beast. It's On! is going to Broadway and you're going to help us get there!
Well, we are...
