TICKETS TO OUR SHOWCASES!

Hi Folks....it may seem like I'm sending out information on the convention rather early...but there is always a lot to do to prepare.
So, I've just set up the tickets, etc. for the GENERAL PUBLIC. I have tickets for your friends and family to attend at special "ON LINE" prices. Yes, tickets can be bought at the door to our showcases, but it will be CHEAPER to do it on line...while tickets last. Save $5 per ticket when buying them on line for a single showcase.
When they sell out, they sell out. Since the movie "JUST ABOUT FAMOUS" has been playing on NETFLIX, I have gotten email and FB messages from all over the world wanting to attend. Here is the rundown for ON LINE ticket prices and the link:
-FRIDAY SHOWCASE: $20 (online$/25 at the door)
-SATURDAY SHOWCASE: $20 
(online$/25 at the door)
-COMBO Fri/Sat SHOWCASE: $38 (online/Not available at the door)

Celebrity Impersonators headed to Orlando!

PRESS RELEASE
To Be Released: ASAP
Today’s Date:    Jun 15, 2017
Re: Celebrity Impersonators Convention and Showcase in Orlando, Florida
So George W. Bush, Lady Gaga and Madonna walk into a bar…. Is this the latest joke circulating on Facebook?  No.  It’s probably a night at The 15th Annual Sunburst Convention of Celebrity Impersonators and Look A Likes.  This annual convention is taking place again here in Orlando.  It is being held on property at The Florida Hotel and Conference Center.
The public is invited to attend the two showcases on September 1 and 2, 2017 where they will see over 45 professional celebrity impersonators perform and appear on stage each day.  Each day’s showcase will feature different “stars”.
The convention is held each year as a way for professional celebrity impersonators and talent agents from across the country to meet face to face and get together on bookings and appearances.  These professional entertainers are booked at corporate events, fairs, festivals, casinos, cruise ships and night clubs across the US, making it a multi-million (if not billion) dollar industry.  This year, the public is invited to attend the showcases .
Greg M and Jackie Thompson are producers of the convention, having started it back in 2004. “During the day it’s business, and at night it’s party time.” says Greg M Thompson.  The convention has been featured on CNN, The Rachael Ray Show, FUSE TV, The Tonight Show, The Daily Buzz and many more television shows.  It was the featured subject of “Just About Famous”, a documentary  that is currently running on NETFLIX.
For more information, visit www.sunburstconvention.com or call 407-226-9088.

PRESS IS INVITED TO ATTEND ANY AND ALL EVENTS.  Please register online at: www.sunburstconvention.com

Sunburst's Birthday Party! Number 15!

Hi Folks,

Jackie and I were discussing what we would like to do for our 15th Year of Sunburst!  We came up with a great idea!

We are having a BIRTHDAY PARTY! It will be complete with a magician, face painters, balloon animals, dancing, games, contests, clown(s), cake and ice cream....it's going to be a blast.

It's like a kid's party....but with adults!  Imagine the fun!

It's included in the registration fee, but it's only open to those who register!

It will be on the FRIDAY NIGHT of the convention.  Last year, we had a "free night" but everyone came to the Hospitality Suite anyway....so this year, we'll go back to having a party!

Yay!

-Greg
