ON YOUR MARC SNEAK PREVIEW & LIVE EVENT TOUR!
(On Hiatus -- Please See Below)
The sneak preview tour for On Your Marc - the new feature-length documentary that intimately captures the life, career and legacy of TV icon Marc Summers - was a success! Throughout October 2017, Summers presented the film in person, coupled with an array of singular events, during a coast-to-coast preview screening tour revolving around the 31st anniversary of Summers’ Double Dare.
In On Your Marc, the Indiana native looks back on his "messy" ups and downs, as he powers through the nerve-racking production and opening night of "Everything In Its Place: The Life & Slimes of Marc Summers," his hilariously illuminating one-man show, co-written by rising Broadway stars Alex Brightman (Tony-nominated lead in School of Rock: The Musical) and composer Drew Gasparini.
Like his two best-known television series, Double Dare and Unwrapped, On Your Marc combines a scrappy, “anything goes” appeal with that of an incisive, informative look at the nature of being in the spotlight. Along the way, Summers reveals how he survived cancer, a recent near-fatal car crash and his lifelong bout with OCD.
Reflecting the unconventional quality of Summers’ career, the On Your Marc tour showcased a unique array of live events in each city. Performances included local bands, Q&As with special guests, celebrity hosts, interactive Double Dare type games ... and even Summers singing along with one-man show "Everything In Its Place" co-writers Alex and Drew.
Our goal in producing the tour was to forego the conventional path of film festivals, and bring the movie directly to the fans. Festivals, conventions, streaming services and perhaps a more traditional theatrical run with a distributor are being explored. But first, we wanted to celebrate the film’s completion, the impact of Marc Summers, and the community still building around our favorite TV icon.
After an extremely successful nationwide "sneak preview" and live event tour around the country throughout the month of October (31st Anniversary of Double Dare!) that enjoyed stops at Los Angeles, Brooklyn, Philadelphia, Austin, Baltimore and Chicago (along with various "live-stream" screenings of the massive Austin event) and a much-needed break for our crew (and Marc!), we are now making some needful tweaks to the film, thanks in part to the exciting change of events in Double Dare's returning to Nickelodeon with Marc Summers on board along with a subsequent live tour.
We look forward to updating this entertaining and perhaps even educational film about a truly unique TV icon and his truly unique journey to get to where he is today.
Thank you all for your continued support and patience, and we will keep everyone updated as we move forward in 2019!
Some of the fantastic press we received about the film screenings and tour!
