ABOUT SILVER SPOON THEATRE
The fictional comedy storyline follows the misadventures of Ian Oldman, a struggling British actor who considers himself the second coming of Shakespeare, and his efforts to build out an event company that seeks to add drama to every party. The Silver Spoon Theatre series mixes a fictional cast with real people, places and locations in the Houston region with a concentration on the Fort Bend County area.
THE LONG FORM STORY
The fictional premise of the Silver Spoon Theatre is that it follows the travails of Ian Oldman, a struggling British actor who thinks of himself as the second coming of Shakespeare. He desperately wants to become a success before he expires from old age. Alas, this lively liberal lives in the wilds of conservative Houston, a region not known for media production. Forever thwarted in his efforts in securing theatrical success, he seeks to fund his dramatic production dreams through work as a party entertainment provider. As a means of promoting himself and his company, Silver Spoon Theatre, he engages students from the University of Houston’s Digital Media program to create a reality YouTube series.
Comedy ensues as Ian struggles with building out his company, handling bratty kids at their birthday parties, dealing with local towns people, and all while keeping his ego somewhat in check.
REAL WORLD GOALS
Outside of being an incredible entertainment project and marketing vehicle, this project has several real-world goals. The first is to create jobs. Real University of Houston Digital Media students will be hired to be part of the crew each season. Instead of going to Austin and Louisiana for film work, these students are eager to apply their talent right here in their home territory.
