Hello and welcome to Tri-Cities Back Stage!
We would like to start off by telling you a little about who we are and what our ‘purpose’ is here. We are just a group of friends (avid theatre-goers and occasional performers) who got together and decided that it would be nice to have a single location where we could go to find out about all of the theatre happenings in our area. We know that there is ALWAYS something going on but it is very hard to keep up with the who, what, and when! Am I right, or am I right?
So, with that in mind, we decided that we would do all of the leg work for you. We are going to work diligently to follow the audition and performance calendars for all of the area performance groups (Theatre Bristol, Johnson City Community Theatre, Kingsport Theatre Guild, etc.) and report all of that information HERE in one central location for you. One stop shopping! How awesome is that??!
Also, we thought it might be nice to include some reviews as well. A few of us have been on stage in the area in the past and have noticed a decided lack of ‘formal’ theatre reviews. It’s always nice to hear those nice things folks have to say during your post performance meet & greet, but more often than not an actor or actress is either so exhausted or so exhilarated he or she cannot remember most of what was said! Sometimes it would be nice to have a little something to be able to print off and tuck away in a photo album or scrap book. People do still do that…right?
Anyway, we hope you enjoy your time with us and we do hope you will come back and visit soon. Do bear with us as this is most definitely a ‘work in progress’.
