Hi my name is Matt and I'm very pleased to welcome you to the Philly Theater and Performance Art meetup. I'm your new organizer.
Our first meetup is Les Miserables at the Walnut St. Theatre on July 26. The deadline to reserve a spot is July 8. If we have more than 15 people we get discount tickets of $60 with no fees attached for mezzanine tickets!
My goal is to create as many opportunities as possible to enjoy this amazing art form. I envision us going to big productions at the Walnut, Wilma, Arden, Philly on Broadway as well as work at smaller venues, readings, works in progress etc.
A little about me: I look young but I've been acting professionally for 14 years--more than half my life. I am also passionate about writing and will attend NYU/Tisch in September to study Musical Theatre Writing as a lyricist/bookwriter. I can still help us find great theatre in Philly after that but I'll need someone to step up to be the new organizer.
Thanks again for being a part of this. Les Mis is one of my favorite shows of all time and in fact why I got into this business in the first place so I'm really looking forward to it!
We are so happy that you have joined our group. On our Meetup site, we provide you with performing arts events, primarily in Center City, Philadelphia. You may also be invited to join us to enjoy theater performances in New York City and in the Baltimore/Washington Metropolitan area. We may work together to plan overnight trips where we will socialize together. On these trips, you will be responsible for your own transportation and hotel arrangements. By becoming a member, you will be part of a community of people who appreciate and support the performing arts.
