The MidCal MINIs webmaster received an email regarding a casting call for Minis. The La Jolla Booking Agency is looking for Minis to feature as part of a touring musical company. According to their email, they produce a national touring musical which retells the Beatles story. The show will be playing at the Visalia Fox Theatre on Sept 27, the Bob Hope Theatre in Stockton on Sept. 28 and the Redding Civic Center on Sept. 29. They are doing a co-promotion with the Shasta MINIs. Five MINIs will usher the actors/musicians who play “The Beatles” and “Brian Epstein” (the Beatles’ Manager) to the theatre (see press release below). The local ABC TV affiliate will cover the event. The band will also perform on Friday, Sept. 27 on KMPH Fox TV. It is assumed (although we have not checked with the Agency) that they are looking for Classic Minis since the Beatles hit the scene in the 60’s.
The Agency also inquired about whether a Mini Club might be interested in doing a co-promotion with the production provided that they were able to secure television coverage. So if any Mini Clubs or Classic Minis are willing to chauffeur the cast to the Stockton theatre, in addition to television coverage for your club, contact Andy Nagle at the number below as they would be willing to provide your club with a free full-page ad in the show’s program and a static ad on the theatre’s screens.
