Six guys. Sixteen songs. No clothes!

By Steven Skelley and Thomas Routzong

Since 1998, people everywhere have been laughing and cheering their way through every moment of the off-Broadway hit Naked Boys Singing. Orlando, Florida producer Tim Evanicki is overseeing a national tour of the international hit musical revue.

We asked Tim Evanicki, Producer of Naked Boys Singing, about the show.

How would you describe, in one sentence, Naked Boys Singing?

A fun escape that pokes fun and celebrates the powers and insecurities that come along with being naked.

What can we expect to see in Naked Boys Singing?

Six guys, sixteen songs, and no clothes – a winning combination!

Who comes to see Naked Boys Singing?

Everyone. Some of our best audiences have been full of straight women. We even had a special performance for a 90th Birthday Celebration for the most wonderful lady in Orlando. So much fun!

What can you tell us about the Naked Boys Singing tour?

The tour is just part of several productions of Naked Boys Singing that will be produced around the country by Tim Evanicki Productions and Ronnie Larsen Presents. The tour cast is soon traveling to Atlanta and Rochester, NY, while we open a sit-down production in Orlando, FL.

Other sit-down (non-touring) productions are being planned for Chicago and Boston.

All in all, there will be 3-4 casts of Naked Boys Singing!

What surprises people the most about Naked Boys Singing?

After the first song, the nudity is no longer shocking. No one believes us when we say that until they see the show. People buy their first ticket for the nudity. They come back for the spectacular singing and dancing!

Conclusion:

We enjoyed the 2007 film of Naked Boys Singing and we are looking forward to seeing this version in person in Orlando.

Rainbow Days at Six Flags Over Georgia Two Months Early This Year

Author: , March 26th, 2014

Rainbow Days - Six Flags Over GeorgiaRainbow Days at Six Flags Over Georgia will be held at Six Flags Over Georgia on Saturday, June 28, 2014, from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m., and on a day significant for our community.

This date will honor and be a tribute to the Stonewall riots of 1970 in New York, one of the beginnings of the modern gay pride movement – and this is the only Pride event in Atlanta in June.

A production of Atlanta Premier Events Group, this annual “gay day of fun” expects to attract some 3,000 or more from Greater Atlanta and beyond.

This year, events include mini-speed dating; rainbow “wedding” ceremonies; special performances on the Main Stage and guest DJs. A Pre-Party Friday night and an After Party on Saturday night are planned.

Also new this year will be free HIV/AIDS testing in the park.

There will be several levels of sponsorship, beginning with Presenting Sponsor to Bronze, Silver and Gold, and all levels are being sold now. Vendor tables this year will be $300 for companies and organizations that cannot afford a full sponsorship. Past sponsors include Coca-Cola, LivingSocial, Monster Energy Drink, Gayborhood App and others.

Admission to the all-day event is available in packages from $24.99 to $49.99 which can include parking, park rides, evening buffet and live stage entertainment. The prices are significantly less expensive than purchasing the amenities separately.

Prior to the event, T-shirts will be available for $12 on our web site. If any shirts are left, they will be sold at the gate on Saturday.

Tickets are available for purchase now at http://www.rainbowdaysatsixflags.com/.

The buffet picnic-style meal includes chicken filet sandwiches, hot dogs, baked beans, potato chips, ice cream bars and Coca-Cola fountain beverages. The meal and DJ entertainment begins at 6 p.m. at the Peachtree Pavilion.

This event has grown by leaps and bounds every year, beginning with just 200 attendees four years ago.

Atlanta Premier Events Group LLC is an event production and management organization that conceives and stages events in Greater Atlanta including celebrity entertainment, concert bookings, award shows, corporate meetings and other special events. It is the producer of Rainbow Days at Six Flags Over Georgia.

Five Things to Do for Free in Atlanta

Atlanta - Apple Maps

from Apple Maps

Many people who visit Atlanta for the hundreds of conventions the city hosts each year never make it out of the few blocks around their hotels. But the city has much more to offer, and some attractions are even free.

Atlanta is a diverse, cosmopolitan city that is home to major corporations’ headquarters, world-class cultural institutions and restaurants helmed by award-winning chefs. It has a rich cultural and political history, plus parks and trails to keep outdoor enthusiasts busy during the many months of the year when Atlanta’s latitude makes it pleasant to be outside. Here are five free things to do and see on your next trip to Atlanta.

MARTIN LUTHER KING JR. HISTORIC SITE

The historic site is operated by the National Park Service. A film and an exhibition of photos, text and video clips in the visitor’s center give a comprehensive overview of the civil rights movement and Martin Luther King Jr.’s leadership role. Up the street is the home where King was born. Tours of the birth home are free but must be reserved in person the day of the tour at the Martin Luther King Jr. Center for Nonviolent Social Change. The crypts of King and his wife, Coretta Scott King, sit in the middle of a reflecting pool outside The King Center. A few steps away, visitors can walk through Ebenezer Baptist Church, where King and his father served as pastors.
