We’re going to break some social media rules today. If you’ve ever had to market a new musical you know that there are subtle and not so subtle ways to get the word out and social media rules would tell you that posting a shameless plug for your show in the comments of an industry blog – like, say, this one — is a no-no. But in this case, we at Make Musicals say YES!
We are pleased to have a strong and ever-growing base of passionate musical theater lovers from around the country who read the blog each week. We are all here to support new musicals and we’d like to know what you’re working on.
So, here’s how this will work. Please tell us about your upcoming musical in the comments section of the current blog post(s). The format is as follows:
Your show name
What the performance is (ie full production, reading etc) & price
Location, Date, Time
Brief show description
Contact info for tickets/reservations
Here’s an example:

Annie, The Vampire Slayer: The Musical
My place, 3/31/11 2pm & 8pm
ANNIE, VAMPIRE SLAYER is the story of a little red-headed orphan and her stray werewolf, Sandy. They get adopted by a rich father figure who, it turns out is, a vampire named Deadly Warbucks. Fortunately, Annie is taken under the wing of vampire trainer, Punjab. With the help of the lethal Leapin’ Lizzards, a gang of misfit orphan girls, Annie defeats Deadly Warbucks during the dramatic but catchy 11th hour number entitled “The Sun’ll Come Out Tomorrow, Sucker” at which point the vampire is exposed to the sun and dies. Annie is triumphant and sings a reprise in a grand finale with the president of the United States. A show for the whole family.
