- Dec. 12, 2012 - DALLAS --
What could compete with the end of the Myan Calendar? Simple the World Premiere of the movie GreasePaint!
"The producers of the film have decided that the release of the movie will be so big that the only thing that could possibly compete was the potential end of days" said Daniel Espeut the films maker. The movie cataloging more than a year's worth of footage following Nojoe's Circus as they toured the U.S. in what could be their last year will make its premiere on December 21, 2012 at 7:00pm in the historic Dallas Theater in Dallas GA. "The story is such a unique piece of Americana we know that it will inspire all who see it", said Greg Gimpelevich an associate producer. The movie takes the audience on a journey through the lives of it's subjects Joey & Jamie Thurmond, founders of Nojoe's Circus. Displaying more to the public than has ever been seen before the focus of the film is not what happens inside the circus rings but, behind the curtain. " I hope the audience is able to see the people behind the acts and makeup and learn that their arts are a true dedication of their lives to the circus", said Joey. A full red carpet event with additional celebrities will begin at 6pm in front of the Dallas Theater. This will be the first time a movie has made it's official premiere at the Theater. "The producers of the film and us as a family have worked very hard to make this a completely free event for our hometown", said Jamie Thurmond. The red carpet, screening of the movie, and the reception afterwards where the public can meet and greet with the cast and producers are all completely free. Some items like posters for the movie may be purchased at the premiere for autographs by the cast members. At the reception there will also be a silent auction featuring items from the movie. All proceeds of the silent auction will benefit the NOJOE Foundaiton. We are told that a big announcement will be made at the premiere. There was no getting additional information from the tightly sealed lips of Joey or Jamie. All that was said was "This will be something that will give back to the community and the entertainment industry who have all supported us for so many years", said Jamie.
