Help Me Get Bums In Seats!

I am producing Piaf: Love Conquers All in Las Vegas!
But I am stuck in a paradox! An age old cunundrum! Putting on a show costs money! Ticket sales should pay for the expenses right? IF there are enough bums in seats! But, how do bums buy tickets if they don't know they're for sale? Facebook? Twitter? My audiences still think apps are little nibblies you eat before dinner.

Gotta hit them the old school way with print and radio advertising! Ah, but silly grasshopper, advertising costs $$$,  now bums buying tickets are paying for the advertising they saw (or heard) that made them aware of the tickets in the first place....have I been calling my audiences bums?

Honestly, I have played / produced Piaf: Love Conquers All over 200 times all over the Continent and beyond. I haven't done it in five years, and a lot of you have never seen it, and don't live in Las Vegas for this version, but I know you would love to support it somehow, and I would LOVE for you to show your support too! Face it, this will probably be the last time I do this show as I am finally older than Piaf was when she took her last bow!

So, if you want to help me get bums in seats for March 4 & 5 at The Winchester Cultural Center in Las Vegas then contribute whatever you can towards my advertising budget to get the word out in this very competitive market-Las Vegas.

If you give $25, the price of a ticket, then you will get access to the live broadcast of the show (will be recorded too for future viewing!). Details about how that would work to come.

The campaign is officially over! Thank you everyone for contributing. And to those who contributed off gofundme. I reached my goal of not being out of pocket for the advertising and marketing so that all ticket sales went to paying my musicians and production team. And the advertising worked! We had over 300 people attend 2 shows!

So here's a funny story from "The President of the Naomi Fan Club" (my brother in law)Nay,
From Pete,
"Nay, I had a funny moment on the phone today with Mastercard. I was just confirming some recent business expenses from a US trip and asked them to go through each charge.

When Wilhelm got to "Yes, and I have a $---- charge, Sir, for...for...Help me get Bums" -- we both paused, and we had one of those awkward moments while he started to chuckle, and I was like "Ok, Wilhelm, it's not what it sounds like...." That's literally how it reads on my MC bill! Not "Help Me Get Bums in Seats" but just "Help me get bums," which apparently can be interpreted in other ways, especially with Las Vegas as the source of the billing.
So funny...
Hope your preps are going well!
