Oh boy, it has been a long and winding road but we are starting to see the end of the tunnel! As I post this entry, half asleep, and realizing I’ll be getting up in 3 hours for work….I can’t come up with anything intelligent to say. So…all I have to say is Congrats! It was a really tough decision making process and our very last night was a game changer! Congrats to all of the shows and we were able to put in even an extra show in our Wild Card Night due to scheduling…it is going to be a heck of a few nights so I hope you come out to support! Remember that your vote counts!

Any rate, here’s what you are looking for the semi-finals: (in order of performance)

Wed: The Walkaway, Foot Fetish, Compound Bow, No Telling, and Last Actor Standing. Thursday: Rehearsal, Hourglass, Subpoena Envy, Welcome Back, Lloyd, and Uncomfortable Sex.

Friday (Wild Card Night): Naked Came the Painting, In the Moment; Every Rose Has Its Thorg, and The Dog House!

Thanks again,
