AN IDIOT ON STAGE
Are you running the marketing for your community theatre company?
Perhaps you're just curious about the person who calls herself An Idiot On Stage.
No matter the reason you're here, I want to encourage you in your theatre life.
I'm Sherryl-Lee Secomb, a marketer helping community theatre organisations promote their creativity without burning out or wasting time on tactics that don't work in volunteer organisations. I provide my services for free.
I've been on stage since I was fifteen, I direct large scale musical theatre productions in South East Queensland and have served on the management of one of Queensland's largest community theatre organisations.
In other words, I get you. With my deep knowledge of the community theatre world and many years of marketing it - successfully - you no longer have any excuse for hiding your 'extraordinary'.
"I LOVE WHAT COMMUNITY THEATRE DOES FOR PEOPLE."
A passionate advocate for community theatre, I created the blog, An Idiot On Stage, in 2014, purposed to “encourage and equip community theatre to expect more and be extraordinary”. I challenge my beloved theatre community to be strong and courageous, fierce and compassionate. Most importantly, I love to be a reminder not to take ourselves too seriously; to be An Idiot On Stage.
As a marketer, I help theatre creatives to understand that in order to succeed in their marketing, they must learn to disrupt their online space, confidently promoting who they are and what they do. Without disruption, they will go unnoticed in a sea of great theatre.
Disruption means to do the unexpected and be yourself but I find that many creatives struggle with this most necessary element of marketing. What does it look like to confidently present yourself without feeling like a prat?
I can help you to discover this secret to standing out in the crowd and open up your creativity to a much wider audience.
SO, WHY ARE YOU HERE TODAY?
Have you been charged with the marketing of your theatre company? Are you confused by where to begin? Perhaps you've been throwing a whole lot of social media content at your audience and not getting the impact you're expecting.
This is where I meet many creatives. I get it. I've done it and I've spent years taking traditional marketing practices and developing a system that works for theatre creatives. I can help you get your marketing into shape.
You don't have to struggle.
You can feel confident with your marketing.
Let me show you how.
