New "Becoming Norman" Artwork

The new artwork for the Becoming Norman postcard was sent to the printer today! I think designer Eric Pargac did an amazing job, and I am extremely pleased with how it turned out!!! I can't wait to get them back from the printer so I can start distributing them!

I'm also really looking forward to seeing what the poster art will look like now!

I'm so excited to announce that the website for Becoming Norman is now live!!! It's still under construction and there will be more to come in the weeks ahead, but now there is something for people to see and there's a link to buy tickets to the show!

Thank you so much to Eric Pargac! He did such a fantastic job with the things we discussed at the production meeting on Monday, and I am so pleased with his design! He really captured the sense and feel of the cards I make and sell through my business It's in the Cards, right down to the little brads that attach the banner greetings to the front of the cards. I can't wait to see what he does for the rest of the artwork for the show!!!

First Production Meeting

The creative team involved with Becoming Norman met this morning in my apartment. (Otto, one of my cats, took a particular liking to A.J. Nowak, our Sound Designer and Production Stage Manager!)

We had a great meeting and got the schedule mapped out for the next few weeks leading up to the first performance on August 6th. There were so many creative ideas flowing in the room, and it was incredibly exciting for me to listen to everyone talk about their vision for what we are creating together. I feel so lucky (blessed?) to have such an amazingly talented group of folks supporting me on this show.

Here's the whole crew:
Norman P. Dixon, Writer/Performer/Producer
C. Raul Espinoza, Producer
Debra De Liso, Director
Steven Applegate, Pianist
Coby Chasman-Beck, Lighting Design
Lacey Anzelc, Set Design
A.J. Nowak, Sound Design/Production Stage Manager
Eric Pargac, Graphic Design
Ken Werther, Publicity
