Big NEWS!!!  (Scroll down for original Campaign description.)

UPDATE: We are thrilled to have reached our funding goal!  Thank you so much to all who have contributed to this campaign.  We are over the moon over your generosity in helping to bring this show to the Alcove Theatre.  

As of this writing, we still have four days left in the campaign.  And that means that we still have a chance to send this campaign over the top. If we are able to do that, then added performances and a CD will be in our future!

As always, I ask that you please help us to spread the word--we still have a theatre to fill up with people! Please share word of this campaign with any like-minded friends.

For a little fun, stop by my Facebook page and enjoy the pics of our "epic advertisement campaign" that have been posted there. And please share them to help build the excitement.  Don't forget to check out the updates, posted here on KickStarter.  Also, be sure to check out the nice write up that we got on Playbill.com by clicking HERE.

Thank you again, everybody, for your faith in this project, and for your continued support.  You can't imagine what it's meant to all of us.

And, now...Let's Sing A Show Tune! Here's a little preview of one of the songs featured in the show.  Enjoy!

LET'S SING A SHOW TUNE!

“Let’s Sing A Show Tune!” is a brand-new musical revue. It sprang to life when the artistic staff of the Alcove Theater invited Ron Lytle to stage an intimate evening of songs from his musical plays.  

A jewel-box theatre just off San Francisco’s Union Square, The Alcove is the perfect venue to showcase Ron’s comic songs, tender ballads, and razzle-dazzle show-stoppers. And we’ve assembled a tip-top trio of musicians to back our six talented singers.

But good venues and great musicians don’t come cheap, and although most of our funding is in place, we’re still a little short…

So here we are, asking the good people of KickStarter to make our holidays merry and bright by helping us to get our show on the road.

And we mean that literally: If we’re a hit during our January run in San Francisco (and if we surpass our financial goal), we’re going to take “Let’s Sing A ShowTune!” on a mini-tour through Northern California.

And with your help, we will be a hit! As a thank you for contributing toward our pledge goal, we’ve created what we think are some really great and unique rewards. We know that you’re going to love them!

About “Let’s Sing A Show Tune!”

“Show Tune!” features many of the best-loved numbers from Ron Lytle’s back-catalogue, along with a heaping helping of brand new compositions from upcoming musicals, and material written especially for this revue. Crowd-pleasing musical theatre at its best, his songs brim over with infectious melodies and virtuosic rhymes.

Best known for the San Francisco hit “Oh My Godmother!”, Lytle is also the creator of “The Man Who Saved Christmas”, “Another Man’s Treasure”, and many other popular musicals. His work has been produced throughout the United States and England.

"Show Tune!" is performed by “The Lytle-izers”: a top-notch troupe of singing actors: Bidalia Albanese, Brian Couch, John Erreca, Kate Offer, Scott Phillips, and Jenifer Tice. Musical direction is by Evan Crone on piano. Roberta Drake sits in on drums, and John Greitzer slaps that bass.

“Let’s Sing A Show Tune!” has truly been a labor of love for the cast and creator. We’re very proud of it, and we think it deserves to be seen by as wide an audience as possible.

Won’t you please help us to make sure that happens? 

Risks and challenges

Our major challenge is getting our message out. We need to reach as many people as we possibly can. We’re a small company that doesn’t have a huge network.

If you can't help us financially, we understand. But we still hope that you will support our efforts, by forwarding the link to this KickStarter campaign to anybody you think might be able to help us reach our goal.

And from the bottom of our hearts, we truly do thank you.
