1,000 Facebook Likes!

Thanks to all of you and the support of our wonderful sponsors and advertisers, PHX Stages just hit 1,000 Facebook "likes" and 8,000 page views in just five and a half weeks since the site officially launched!

I had this crazy idea back in early October to create a website that encompassed all of the great theatre in the Valley - from professional, to semi-professional, community theatre, children's theatre. concerts and even the Broadway themed shows at the Symphony - a "one stop shop" for everything theater in Phoenix - and have been overjoyed with the enthusiastic response the site has received.

While the site is mainly a labor of love I want to thank the theatre companies in town who realized the void that this site would fill and who came aboard not just as advertisers but as site sponsors.  I'm happy to report that while we list information for close to 30 theatre companies and arts organizations on the site for free, that, currently, 20 of those companies, seeing the value that our extremely low cost advertising provides, are full year advertisers and that the monthly "site sponsor" spots are sold out for the rest of the 2014-2015 season.  Without their sponsorship this site couldn't be possible.

But this site wouldn't be a success without you, the theatergoer.  You've not only given us some great feedback on the site, told us other theatre companies that we should list and have "liked" us on Facebook but you are the ones who are buying tickets and keeping the arts alive in the Valley.

So thank you, thank you, thank you
