Not sure who to give Broadway to this season?
8 Reasons Tickets Make A Great Gift:
- You’re giving an EXPERIENCE.
- Do you really remember every gift you received last year? 5 years ago? Give your loved ones something they’ll remember for years to come.
- You won’t be wasting your hard earned cash – unlike a sweater, tie or pink bunny footie pajamas… tickets won’t get pushed to the back of a closet.
- Instead of playing the gift guessing game with a toy that gets tossed to the side, introduce the kids to the magic of theatre.
- Date night. Need we say more?
- We all know that in-laws are difficult to buy for. Make it a 4-pack and they’ll be pleased with your willingness to share date night with them.
- Ladies: choose to give tickets over gift cards this year, and change up your Girl’s Night Out routine!
- Check the entire family off of your gift-giving list and make it a family affair! It only takes 10 people to qualify for our Group Discount!
From all of us here at DSM, we hope you and your family have a wonderful and safe Holiday Season!

Well, this is it! I finished my last day on the internship and am so grateful for everything I’ve learned. It’s been a busy week, but so worth it.
Thanks to all who helped make this internship possible, especially The Broadway League and ATPAM.
Tonight I worked with the Company Manager, Fred, again. Emily was out of the office, so Fred had double the work load. He’s a great multi-tasker and was able to answer all of my questions while he worked.
The show is leaving Texas tomorrow and heading to Tempe, Arizona. This meant a lot of visits from people wanting to double check on housing, transportation, and other information. I met so many cast and crew members, I can’t remember their names!
He talked me through some of the paper work he was doing and I added a few words to my vocabulary.
It was all routine for Fred, and all new to me.
FUN FACT: This month THE LION KING will reach $1 billion in gross sales. This makes it not only Broadway’s #1 musical now showing; it makes it Broadway’s #1 musical ever!
Another loooong but rewarding day!
It all started with the annual Road Market Forum with The Broadway League. As an intern for the League, I was invited to attend.
It was a day filled with power points and new faces. I learned about geo fencing, the correct way to email advertise, and heard several big ideas brainstormed. Who knows. Maybe one day, I’ll be back at this Forum not as an intern but as an employee and contributor.
After the Forum closed, I rushed back stage to meet with Production Stage Manager, Ken Davis, and his crew. I shadowed them backstage as they performed their cues for moving set pieces, overseeing quick changes, and all other technical sides to the show. There is always something going on backstage and it takes a lot of stage hands and dressers to make sure that the show runs smoothly. You definitely need to be quick on your toes as a stage hand and always alert or you might get run over by Pride Rock.
FUN FACT: THE LION KING always has six South Africans cast in the show. This ensures that the dialect used by the character Rafiki as well as several musical numbers are authentic.
This was a day FULL of interviews. I shadowed Gregory Hanoian who is the publicist for this tour of Disney’s THE LION KING. He had flown out a TV personality to shoot some material for THE LION KING’S upcoming shows in Arizona.
With my background in Communications, the job of a publicist is very appealing to me. I love well planned schedules that are full of excitement, and that describes how the day went…full and exciting. Gregory said that with a show as diverse as THE LION KING there were a number of interviews he could have set up. There are so many angles to this show, that even when it returns to a city (like Dallas) for the second or third time it can still create a buzz.
Thanks to Destry Jetton of Channel 12 News in Arizona for letting me watch all of her interviews take place.
FUN FACT: Nia Holloway, who plays Nala, is only 18! As a senior in high school, Nia travels with a private tutor so she can complete her studies.
Yesterday I had my first day on the “job” while shadowing the company manager and assistant manager of Disney’s THE LION KING. Fred Hemminger, the company manager of the show, said his job is very similar to HR. He takes care of things outside the performances including, housing for cast and crew, flight plans, payroll, and worker’s compensation. He also reports ticket sales to New York, and works with venues on contract agreements. Basically, it’s a lot of paper work to juggle while traveling across the country.
Watch the video to learn about why Fred decided to become a company manager.
FUN FACT: One of the terms of agreement when contracting a venue is that THE LION KING must have access to three on-site washer and dryers. All of them are used daily!
