PLEASE STAY SAFE EVERYONE!

Back in March we were selected as a finalist for this year's RAVE Theater Festival in NYC. Of course we were all super excited to participate, but at the same time we were all worried about the pandemic. Well, yesterday we were informed the 2020 RAVE festival had been cancelled. It wasn't unexpected and we fully support the decision. Be patient everyone, theatre will come back and WYSIWYG will be on our stages again soon.

Rehearsal track for "Some Things Never Change"

You should probably download the music for this one since it has 3-part harmonies in the chorus and a lot of directors will use this to see how well you blend with the others in the scene.

David Traugh joins WYSIWYG development team

You may have noticed that we've started enhancing the musical accompaniment and rehearsal tracks for WYSIWYG recently. With all the buzz about the show we decided it was time to start creating a supplemental music track for actor rehearsals and theater companies that wanted an option of mixing in all the sound from the board too. Check out our WYSIWYG rehearsal playlist on SoundCloud

The unique challenge with WYSIWYG is that several characters can play musical instruments and this can be cast in various ways, so it was important for us to provide options for a complete spectrum of performances. Ultimately, we decided to provide a sound track for the entire score and allow the director to decide when to use the skills of the actors on stage.

David Traugh joined our development team in late 2019 and has been providing the new performance tracks as needed over the last few months. He and April go back over 40 years. Here's a picture of Dave's Emmy and the earliest picture we have of them working together - circa 1976.
