Becky’s New Car

GET logo
“When a woman says she needs new shoes, what she really wants is a new job. When she says she needs a new house, she really wants a new husband. And when she says she wants a new car, she wants a new life.” Meet Becky Foster, a modern day American Everywoman stuck in middle age and middle management with no prospects for change. Enter a socially inept millionaire who offers Becky an enticing new life. You’re invited to ride shotgun with Becky as she faces her own fork in the road on a wickedly funny, inventive and touching ride through the perils of middle age.

The Foreigner

GET logo
The Foreigner may be one of the funniest American plays ever written as it uses every device in the comedy storehouse to make you laugh yourself silly! Charlie’s shyness renders him helpless in conversation – so when a friend covers for him by telling the other guests in a rural Georgia mountain lodge that he is an exotic foreigner and speaks no English, Charlie ends up hearing more – MUCH more – than he should.

Ring of Fire

The Johnny Cash Musical Show
GET logo
We’re gonna raise the roof with this barn-burner of a musical that celebrates the songs of an American legend, The Man in Black himself, Johnny Cash. This thrilling show will feature an ensemble of many of your favorite GET singers and musicians who will make Ring of Fire an extraordinary theatrical event to add to our rich history of high energy, sold-out, foot-stomping musicals!
What a fun and unique gift idea for friends and family!  Or simply treat yourself to a wonderful time at the Theatre!

Ashley LeConte Campbell’s
– Script Analysis Workshop
It’s finally here! The workshop that everyone has been waiting for!!! Ashley LeConte Campbell is bringing her ‘Script Analysis Workshop’ to BLUEPRINT 4 HOLLYWOOD!

Ashley left a 20 year career in the corporate sales world at the beginning of 2005 and started her acting career. Although she’d done commercials and industrials on the side, she’d never taken an actual acting class until then! She found some wonderful classes and workshops in Atlanta that paved the way to her eventually taking Margie Haber’s 6-week Intensive in Los Angeles – and with that her tv/film career was launched! Ashley was coached by Crystal Carson prior to almost every tv/film booking she’s had and believes that continuing to be coached/trained is critical to growing a solid career in acting….and to staying competitive with the LA talent against whom we are being compared!

Script Analysis Workshop
This 7 hour workshop is full of everything an actor needs to answer the question, “What are the most important things for me to do when I get my script/sides?!”  We all know that the answer is NOT that you should race to memorizing your lines….but what is the most important way to prepare?
Actors who have trained with Ivana Chubbuck, Margie Haber, Crystal Carson, Annie Grindlay, Howard Fine, Uta Hagen, or Larry Moss will recognize familiar themes.
In this workshop we will:
– Discuss and use our imaginations to find our character’s want, obstacles, environment, relationships, stakes, and history
– Break down sides from Film/TV projects that have shot in the area
– Watch short video clips of Los Angeles casting directors/actors/coaches espousing these exact techniques for creating a 3-dimensional character
– Take part in fun exercises that put to use the things we are learning throughout the day.

Q: Is there something deep about Salt, doc? I’m serious. I really wanna know.

A: Salt is vital for life. It’s pretty much as key as water. As you may know, they give you saline when you’re dehydrated… and that’s not just straight H20. And salt gives things flavor. Jesus told his disciples to be “salt and light.” That’s all pretty deep, in a spiritually-significant sort of way.

Oh, wait. You were talking about the movie, weren’t you? Yeah, there’s some of that there, too, I suppose.

AMC Renews ‘The Walking Dead’ for a Third Season



AMC announced today the renewal of The Walking Dead for a third season. Season 2 continues to deliver the strongest telecasts for any drama in basic cable history against Adults 18-49 shattering a basic cable record set nearly 10 years ago for a single drama telecast (The Dead Zone). The Walking Dead is based on the comic book series written by Robert Kirkman and published by Image Comics. Glen Mazzara serves as series’ showrunner. Kirkman, Gale Anne Hurd, David Alpert and Frank Darabont are executive producers. Greg Nicotero is a co-executive producer.


“Today we are pleased to announce that the ‘dead’ shall live as we proudly renew The Walking Dead for a third season on AMC and, globally, with our terrific partners at Fox International Channels,” said Charlie Collier, AMC’s President. “We are thankful for everyone’s contribution in front of and behind the camera as we continue to make The Walking Dead a unique television experience. And, we are so proud as it continues to set viewership records around the world.”


FOX International Channels rolled-out its global launch for The Walking Dead this weekend, with premieres on FIC’s cable networks in Europe, Asia, Latin American, Africa and the Middle East. The series’ international premieres delivered equally impressive results in all major international TV markets, and broke pay-TV ratings’ records across the world. Over 10 million viewers in 122 countries tuned in live to watch the second season premiere of this highly anticipated returning drama. And, FIC will once again be the international broadcasting partner for the series with Entertainment One continuing to distribute in non-FIC markets.


“Partnering with AMC on The Walking Dead took some guts”, said Sharon Tal Yguado, SVP of Scripted Programming at FIC. “But at the same time was the easiest programming decision we ever made. It’s rare to come across a groundbreaking TV project that is also attached to some of the best talent in town. The Walking Dead was treated as a global event since day one and not only changed the traditional TV model but also changed our viewers’ TV experience. It is now officially a global addiction with millions of fans around the globe wanting more. We are delighted to give it to them.”


The Walking Dead secured a 2010 Golden Globe nomination for Best Television Series – Drama and won the 2011 Emmy Award for Outstanding Prosthetic Makeup. The series tells the story of the months and years that follow after a zombie apocalypse. It follows a group of survivors, led by police officer Rick Grimes, who travel in search of a safe and secure home.


The Walking Dead received rave reviews from countless critics, both domestic and international, who heralded the series as “above all else, The Walking Dead hasn’t lost the most important ingredient in its strangely successful recipe: it’s thrilling” (The Hollywood Reporter), “…with Dead’s riveting cast of characters, the personal dynamics are almost as potent as the gory thrills” (Us Weekly), “The Walking Dead is a feast. Dig in.” (The Guardian, UK), “It doesn’t even take three minutes to realize that this series is setting standards” (Der Tagesspiegel, Germany).
