Time Traveling Drag Queens in the 1960s! Team Page

WELCOME TO THE TTDQ60 TEAM PAGE!

“Time Traveling Drag Queens in the 1960s!” tells the story of our three drag queens, Imma, Coco, and Christie, who wind up at an airport in 1960s and have to solve a murder.  It’s a very silly show with lots of great ’60s music in it.

There will will have a minimum of three performances

  • Friday, June 21 at 7pm
  • Saturday, June 22 at 3pm
  • Sunday, June 23 at 3pm

If tickets sell well, we may add a fourth performance either Saturday early evening or Sunday evening.

This page will have all of the important music, script, schedule, and more.  READ IT!

SAVANNAH CABARET GUIDING PRINCIPLES

  • We will always strive to create a positive, friendly, supportive, and fun environment.
    • We are not getting rich, going to Broadway, or winning any awards for these shows so if we can’t have fun, why are we doing it?
  • We adhere to a strict “no assholes” policy.
    • The only drama we want is the one we’re putting on the stage.
  • We will always be on time for rehearsal, meetings, and shows.
    • Being late is not only detrimental to the production, it’s inconsiderate of your fellow cast members and crew who did what they needed to do to be on time.
  • We will always come prepared.
    • The small amount of time we have to rehearse together must be supplemented by your own work on your own time working on your lines, lyrics, songs, and characters.
  • We will pitch in to help wherever it is needed.
    • Everyone does everything including promoting the show since the more butts in seats, the more most cast and crew gets paid.

This is definitely a first draft – expect rewrites.

                      All cast members and crew as noted above are eligible for being included in the show bonus pool.

                      IF the show makes a profit, all net profits from tickets sales only will be divided equally amongst the cast and crew participants in the pool (estimated to be 14 people).

                      For illustrative purposes only:

                      • Gross Profits: $12,000
                      • Expenses: $6,000
                      • Net Profits: $6,000
                      • 50% of Net: $3,000
                      • 50% of Net Divided by 14 participants: $214 each

                      Total compensation is therefore dependent on ticket sales, but paid cast and crew members will receive their base pay even if the show loses money.

                      SCHEDULE (subject to change)
                      Note: 
                      some things like costume fittings and set build will be added based on availability of needed cast and crew
