As I write this, the Sundance Film Festival is in full swing.
Ghosts and goblins! Witches and wizards!
Monsters and meatballs… Beware!
Your night to shine is almost here!
All Hallows Eve will soon be upon us and it’s time to start planning the best Monster Bash of your lives!
Get together with your friends and start working out the details.
The who’s, what’s, when’s and where’s…
The tricks and the treats…
The foods and drinks!
It’s all part of the fun and you’ll want to get it done.
Don’t forget to put in your order for your scenic backdrop or step and repeat banner and any lighting, red carpet or stanchions you might need. You can go to Step and Repeat LA online at: www.stepandrepeatla.com
Here’s an idea for a theme within a theme for Halloween:
Have everyone come as their favorite actor or actress of the 1930′s or 1940′s like:
Jimmy Stewart, Clark Gable, Greta Garbo, Myrna Loy, John Wayne, Dean Martin or Jerry Lewis!
There are hundreds of great actors to choose from.
Then have a special Hollywood Backdrop with red carpet and lights. Have someone dress up like one of the old newspaper guys to take pictures of all your “celebrities” in black and white photos (digital of course).
Have someone put the photos all together like a newspaper with headlines and special quips about the party!
Think of the fun! This could be the best Halloween party ever!
Try to select a date and time that works for as much of your team as possible.
If spouses are attending, try to start the event late enough to give everyone enough time to get ready and arrive. Don’t make the event start so late that the awards last into the wee hours… especially if you are having the event on a weekday.
Select a location that is special and shows that you are honoring the award recipients.
This doesn’t mean breaking the bank on the venue alone. It does mean you don’t want to hold the event at the local fast food restaurant.
Pick a theme that your group will enjoy, whether it is black tie, beach time or space cowboy, come up with a theme that speaks to your team.
Floor plan and seating:
Make sure there is plenty of room for recipients to make their way to the stage to accept their awards.
Timing of Meal/Ceremonies:
If your event includes a meal, plan the timing so that the food is not being served while the awards are being announced.
Pick the music for before, during and after the event to match the theme and to contribute to the event rather than detract from it.
Decide if you will have one MC giving out awards or several. There are many ways you can do this. None of them are wrong. Decide what is best for your group.
Plan what lighting to use throughout the event and what lighting to use when the awards start. A couple of extra spots can add a subtle sense of importance to the awards portion of the ceremony.
Banner and red carpet location:
Of course you want to have a great step and repeat backdrop from Step and Repeat LA. The step and repeat backdrop with your company or group logo and slogan is a great way to add the feeling of importance that your awards ceremony deserves.
Plan who will take the photos and/or videos of the event. Have them capture recipients in front of the step and repeat backdrop to create memorable images for your next newsletter.
After the official ceremonies, let everyone come up for their photo-op in front of the banner so they can all have a memento of the event.
Each and every one of your guests can be on the cover of a “famous” magazine!
This is a great way for your guests to be able to take home a fun reminder of your event. Our designers can help you create the perfect backdrop. Your magazine cover can feature your products or services or be just for fun!
Whether you are preparing for a corporate party, event or tradeshow, a custom magazine cover backdrop will be a sure hit.
With a step and repeat backdrop or custom banner, EVERYBODY is a celebrity!
So easy… and so much fun!

Los Angeles Premiere!
The Los Angeles Theatre Center (THELATC) has a fantastic show debut this September on the 7th, 8th, and 9th.
Andre’ & Dorine
Written by Kulunka Teatro.
Directed by Inaki Rikarte.
Produced by Kulunko Teatro and The Latino Theater Company in association with Albuquerque Journal Theater.
André & Dorine is a piece of contemporary Mask Theatre about a couple who needs to remember who they were, so they don’t forget who they are. In a small room where memories hang over the walls, sound the keys of a typewriter and the notes of a cello. They are André and Dorine, an elderly couple gently decaying from routine and neglect, with a passion once so huge for each other now fading into indifference. But an event comes to break the monotony: Alzheimer’s, our greatest antagonist, devourer of memories and of identity itself.
Kulunka Teatro’s contemporary and committed mask theatre transcends language barriers with no text or words. It explores uplifting and thought provoking themes with movement, masks and music.
This award-winning show has toured extensively in places such as Spain, South America, China and Europe and is now coming to us, here, in the United States.
Step and Repeat LA has worked with the Los Angeles Theatre Center and has had the pleasure of seeing some of the great productions this center has offered.
Take the time and go see this latest award-winning show in September and let us know what you think. We are sure your experience will be as memorable as ours.
Ticket information is available here.
Enjoy the clip of the show!
