First Creative Think Tank | ACT 1
Updated: Nov 8
London, England - August 2023
We're thrilled to give you an exclusive glimpse into our recent adventures at the First Creative Think Tank for 'Mad Hatter The Musical' held in the heart of London, England. It was an exhilarating experience, and here's what we've been up to:
1. First Creative Think Tank The Creative Think Tank served as an invaluable platform for us to collaborate closely with selected creatives from the industry. We delved into the script line by line, discussed the valuable feedback from the audiences, story's arc, thematic takeaways, and transitions. This collaborative effort brought fresh perspectives and helped us develop a more compelling and vibrant narrative.
2. Why London, England? We selected London as the venue for our Think Tank, seeking to submerge ourselves in the ambiance of historic London, where the tale of 'Mad Hatter The Musical' originated. The city's abundant historical richness and Victorian allure offered an ideal backdrop for our creative brainstorming.
Our chosen location was The Parcel Yard, situated within King's Cross Train Station, and intriguingly positioned just above the famed Harry Potter Platform 9 3/4, which connects travelers to the enchanting world of Harry Potter.
3. Two Days of Deep-Diving Our Creative Think Tank spanned two intense days of closed-door sessions, each lasting eight hours. This deep dive allowed us to refine every aspect of the production, ensuring that 'Mad Hatter' will be an unforgettable theatrical experience.
4. Victor's Birthday Celebration We had the pleasure of celebrating Victor's birthday during the Think Tank. And what's a birthday without a cake? We enjoyed a delightful Yola Cake in honor of this special occasion.
5. Benchmarking and Exploration During our evenings in London, we took the opportunity to benchmark against other successful musicals and explored the city for even more inspiration. London's vibrant arts scene and historical sites added depth to our creative journey.
6. Act 1 Completion We're thrilled to announce that we successfully completed Act 1 of 'Mad Hatter The Musical' during the Creative Think Tank. The story is taking shape beautifully, and we can't wait to share it the completed script with you soon.
7. Performing at THE CRAZY COQ
Everywhere we go, Vince and Victor find an opportunity to sing "Be My Wonderland" and each and every time it becomes a standing ovation. It was no different in London - they killed it.
The First Creative Think Tank in London was an incredible experience, and it has set the stage for an even more enchanting and captivating 'Mad Hatter The Musical.' We're deeply grateful for your support and can't wait to share the magic with you.
Stay tuned for more exciting updates, and thank you for being a part of this wonderful journey!
