Time Flies When You’re Having Fun

One Year In.


Wow. It’s been an entire year since The Next Stage made its first entrance. Glancing back over the first post from that day I’m pleased to realize that not much has changed with regards to my mission statement, and I have to say how proud I am to have discovered so many other people through the interconnectedness of blogging that share it with me. Thank you to all of you in the theatrosphere who continue to take the time to share your experiences, inspire, cajole, ask questions, inform, and entertain for no other reason than the pure love of theatre. It amazes me. I’m proud to be a member of the club.

And thank you very much to everyone who has read, and continues to read, my little magazine. And to all of you who have supported me in this, and especially those that have given freely of their time to answer some questions in public, my sincerest and most heartfelt gratitude. We’ve all set a distinct goal, and the one thing I’m sure about after a year in this space and the many conversations through it is this: we’re moving closer to that goal every day.

What’s Next?


  1. Nice job on year one Simon! So many great moments.

    I hope Vancouver theatre people appreciate what a gem they’ve got on their hands here.

    The new video promo feature is genius.

    To celebrate, I’d like to make a small donation to the company. Please pass along the mailing address where I can send my cheque?

    I’d also encourage other readers to do the same. If possible.



  2. I’m literally speechless. Ian Mackenzie, ladies and gentlemen. I would like to note that my immersion in to this method of communication and my confidence within it is owed in large part to Ian, I kind of feel like his Jedi apprentice.

    Thank you so much for your generous offer Ian, that is above and beyond, truly. LSP is actually in the middle of our non-profit incorporation, so soon we’ll be able to give out real receipts for that!

    I love this community.
