STO Anna Williamson has launched an exciting new resource for Oregon Thespians. From Anna:
Oregon Thespians ShowStop was created to help Thespian Troupes in the state of Oregon get in contact with each other! Community really is what theatre is all about, but isn’t it awesome to have one big tech forum to really rely on each other like one big happy family?!? Yes it might be way easier to just go order a cheap set piece off of ebay or craigslist, or maybe even just put an online buying option right here, but with technology growing and developing every day, wouldn’t it be nice to make a (almost) human interaction? We think so! Now, go forth and TRADE!!!
Getting Your Account Going: If your troupe does not already have access to ShowStop, no need to worry! Simply have your director email email@example.com. Really, it’s that simple! Anna will give that email address access to publish item posts for your troupe.
For more information (including instructions), visit oregonthespiansshowstop.wordpress.com today!
Thank you to Anna and all the STO for their valuable contributions so far this year!
