The Greg Miller Project
The Greg Miller Project is a theatrical performance and education organization that brings patrons live entertainment accompanied by affordable food and beverage choices. We intend to open a two hundred seat facility complete with electric kitchen and full bar service at 3820 North Broadway Avenue, Rochester, MN 55906.
Initial revenues will come from its eight Mainstage shows (regularly scheduled full season of musicals and stage plays of one hundred performances) and up to over thirty individual special event nights throughout the year (one shot stand up, music, improv comedy, dance shows, etc.) Additional income will be made through our educational offerings in acting, improv, dance and music (a possible three hundred and sixty or more class periods in the season). We are also looking into the possibility of running classic and cult favorite films on a limited basis.
The opportunity we see in Rochester is to capitalize on Mr. Miller's experience and respected name in the Arts community, utilize the cadre of hundreds of artists and volunteers at his disposal, and bring a unique theatrical entertainment venue to the expanding and developing Rochester region.
Our goal is to offer quality theatrical performances at an affordable price. We'll do this by hiring talented and experienced artists to lead and create each production. Augment that with talented and experienced volunteer performers, great food, drink and ambiance and you have a terrific evening out; an evening that you can afford to have once or more a month.
The food and beverage component is a unique addition to what is currently available to Rochester theatergoers. The Greg Miller Project will offer a limited menu of appetizer and dessert style foods for patrons along with a full bar. If you've come right from work and want a tasty hot sandwich and a beer before or during the show we've got you covered. Perhaps you've come from one of our community's fine restaurants and decided to hold off on dessert? You can order it before the show and we'll bring that decadent chocolate cake to your seat at intermission.
The bulk of our clientele are 40s plus college grads, white collar workers and retired folk and they form our loyal mainstage membership base. With the resurgence of popularity in modern Broadway musicals and in live acts, the demographic is broadening. With crossover appeal mainstage titles, theatrical event nights, reduced membership ticket prices and student rush ticket sales, we can serve all age and economic groups.
It is the company dream to be a thriving, for profit arts employer that brings excellent live theatrical productions to the Rochester area by employing area artists (working toward paying all who contribute to the art), collaborating and responding to its audiences' needs, and training and encouraging the community's next generation of artists.
