A couple of weeks ago, I started seeing someone named Pinse Hinson running for something on my Facebook page.
After taking a look at the photos, I realized that it was Cameron Bean, who is the development director of the Springer Opera House.
I made an appointment to see him, Cameron, that is, today. And after talking with him for an hour, it's really a clever way to promote the brand-new play, "I Tweeted on My iPad (and I Liked It)," that will be in the Springer next month.
He's playing the politician in the play and will be debating real-life elected officials every night. A different one. In fact, he'll be doing seven debates during the run of the show.
Cam says you might think of going to several shows because it will be different every night.
Now, there is an outline for the play, but with audience participation and the debates, there will truly be a different show every night.
Graphicom, the licensed Apple store in Columbus, will send iPads for people to use during the show. And they'll also have personnel there to help those of us who need help to work the electronic devices.
For once, the theater is encouraging people to use their phones and tablets to respond to the show. Can you imagine? Instead of someone coming on stage to ask that you turn your phone off, they'll ask that you keep it on!
The show can be seen at 7:30 p.m. April 12-14 and 2:30 p.m. April 15 and 7:30 p.m. April 19-21 in Foley Hall.
Tickets are $15-$35.
