"DR. DALE" SMITH SHARES WITH YOU
"Like many individuals, I grew up singing, participating in plays, musicals
and any other venue I could find in which to perform. I have always loved the stage!
In 1982, I founded a program, American Kids Inc, a program similar to "Little League" baseball, except the program served young entertainers."
"Recognizing, we, who are 'smitten' with the call to the stage,
knowing there is a need for a program that can serve older entertainers,
I believe "Still Got It" will be a great service to many."
MISSION AND PURPOSE
Our mission is to provide opportunity for mature entertainers to entertain on a regular basis
in a venue suited to their respective skills and experience. "STILL GOT IT" is purposed
to encourage older adults to 'push through' the barriers that have kept them from pursuing that
dream they still hold within. The message to all audiences will be to suggest that,
"Regardless of your age, if that dream is still there, DO IT"!
HOW WILL THE PROGRAM BE ORGANIZED?
Beginning in January 2020, media announcements will be made in the
Branson area, designed to solicit entertainers to join with others to formulate a show troupe.
This show troupe will perform in a variety of theater venues as preshow entertainment. This group will develop a show format and produce a monthly variety show. After 6 months of shows, we will gather the most unique entertainers, and tape a pilot show to submit to distribution companies in
Los Angeles, with whom we are already connected. We would like to see this show televised and grow to 100's of cities across the country, giving this opportunity to people everywhere!
The show troupes that are established in each city, will also be available to perform,
at their discretion, for reunions, fairs and festivals, nursing homes and
community celebrations, where their positive impact is needed.
Community is important to us!
HOW DOES "STILL GOT IT" IMPACT OTHERS?
Those who participate will be served, in that, they are responding,
participating and sharing their God-given talents with others.
They will experience a greater sense of 'USEFULNESS' and 'CONNECTION'.
The message that this activity sends to various audiences,
is one of ENCOURAGEMENT and RELEVANCE.
It is a message that says "You have a talent and gift.
You have something in your heart that you have dreamed of accomplishing.
At any age, under any circumstance, you must share that!"
The "STILL GOT IT" program provides a great opportunity to soar high once again,
lifting others up, and creating unity in entertainers and their communities!
WHAT OTHER WAYS MIGHT THE PROGRAM SERVE?
The variety shows and open mic nights will produce some income. Since this is an
"all-volunteer" program, after all overhead expenses, monies generated will be
donated to support our charity of choice,
OFFERINGS GLOBAL HUMANITARIAN SOCIAL NETWORK
There are families and individuals within our community that need
the basics of life, that of food, clothing, medication and shelter.
God gave us great talents, and in this way, we can use them for the benefit of others.
HOW DOES "STILL GOT IT" RELATE TO THE ENTERTAINMENT COMMUNITY?
The "STILL GOT IT" program will serve to promote the entertainment community.
When the show troupe begins to present it's monthly show, members from casts of other
local shows will be invited to be a guest in the "STILL GOT IT" production.
They will be interviewed to promote the shows these guests represent.
"STILL GOT IT" hopes to promote every Branson venue,
at one time or another, throughout the season.
