About Stan's Last Stand at The Grand Bandstand

Stan’s Last Stand at The Grand Bandstand

What is It?
Stan’s Last Stand is a musical play, the story of Stan Lane. Stan himself is an entertainer – mostly a singer – who regularly appeared at The Grand Bandstand showroom. At the time of the show, this building that was the sanctuary of Stan’s career is scheduled for demolition the next day. Stan slips in for one last night, to say goodbye to the room that loved him.

What is this Patreon funding for?
It will fund the play’s development and its premiere production. Musicals are expensive to stage and as this one features a 17 piece orchestra, a cast of 8, sets to build, halls to rent, etc. etc. it needs an injection of $5000. A portion of the ticket money will be going to charities, as will 50% of any money raised beyond our $5000 target (the other 50% will be divided among the actors, backstage crew, and used to fund future productions).

When and Where is the Premiere?
The premiere production is scheduled for 2020 in Thunder Bay, Ontario, Canada. Thunder Bay was the hometown of playwright of Hubert O’Hearn, who emigrated to Ireland in 2012. After the premiere run, the show will be available for production worldwide.
