In addition to a dinner, Adrienne is offering a raffle of exclusive behind the scenes photos.
BEHIND THE SCENE CONTINUITY PHOTOS
Message from Adrienne:
I wanted to include a personal note, as this one is very special!
This is a set of one-of-a-kind behind the scenes continuity photos, never before available to the public, that I am offering via raffle tickets. This is a big-ticket item that could be yours for only the price of the raffle ticket.
Last year, my makeup artist from Xena: Warrior Princess found a treasure trove of old continuity photos from the series in her storage locker, where they have been sitting safely for 15+ years in New Zealand; a mix of polaroids and snapshots taken on set during filming. They are in mint condition and were specifically shot for production and used by the makeup department and other departments to keep track of the details of each episode. She gifted them to me…and now I’m offering the set to the Xenite community for charity.
How many years has it been since we’ve seen something new from the set of Xena pop up available to the public? It’s been a very long time. These photos had never been seen by the fans before, and never owned outside of production until now.
The photos are a mix of nearly 100 images of a variety of characters including Livia and Eve, Michael (Charles Mesure), Zeus (Charles Keating), Hades (Stephen Lovatt who was also recently on Ash vs. Evil Dead, and Spartacus), Solan (Nicko Vella), Aphrodite (Alexandra Tydings), Celesta (Theresa Healey), Hephaestus (Jason Hoyte), and Kahina (Alison Bruce).
They include hand written production notes, scene numbers, episode numbers and details about characters, filming, and production specific to character makeup, location, setting, injuries/makeup etc.
These brought back so many wonderful memories! As much as I would love to keep them, I know the fans will love them as much as I do, and will give them a fantastic home, so I’m willing to part with them for a great cause.
They have exceptional value in my opinion as they are truly one-of-a-kind and never before available. The entire set is available for you to own. I have put the entire set into a beautiful canvas photo album with gold leaf details that I have also signed. This set deserve some love and attention and has exceptional value. I hope you love this new discovery as much as I did!
I want to use this unique set of photos to raise more funds for charity, so have decided to raffle the item instead of through bidding. This allows us to raise a nice sum of money while also keeping the purchase price low for anyone interested. It could be yours for only $50.
Tickets are $50 each. There’s no limit to the number of tickets you can buy. Anyone who buys 9 tickets will automatically get a 10th ticket free.
A maximum of 100 tickets available.
*We must sell at least 50 tickets to auction the album.
The raffle will be held live at the 2017 Xenite Retreat. If the winner is at the retreat, they will be given the album immediately. If winner is not at the retreat, the album will be shipped to the winner, for free, the following week.
In addition to the raffle, Adrienne is offering tickets to a dinner party.
Let’s eat and drink and be merry! The dinner will take place on Thursday, April 27, 2017 from 7-10 pm in Burbank, CA. This year we’ve made it EASY – dinner will take place at The Daily Grill located inside the Marriott hotel in Burbank. Just take the elevator down and join us for dinner 🙂 It’s a chance for us to have a nice meal together before jaunting off to the retreat the next morning.
A maximum of only 12 tickets are available to this event at a cost of $250 per ticket. Proceeds from sales of the tickets will benefit a family struggling with medical costs.
Your ticket gives you access to the private dinner, where you will have the opportunity to mingle with other Xenites and chat with Adrienne and with Steven L. Sears (and possibly a 3rd guest will be added) in a casual atmosphere. You will have the opportunity to talk to, get autographs from, and take pictures at the dinner!
Before purchasing tickets, please read this section carefully. By making a purchase, you are demonstrating that you understand and agree to all terms and conditions outlined below:
1.Tickets are non-refundable, but you may transfer them to another individual at any time. To request a transfer, please email us with the name of the original ticket holder and the name of the new ticket holder.
2. Ticket does not provide transportation to Burbank, CA, hotel accomodations, or entrance to the Xenite Retreat. Ticket only provides access to the dinner with Adrienne (the cost of dinner is included).
3. Adrienne is there for sure, but additional guests are subject to change based on scheduling conflicts. Remember, they’re regular people too, and sometimes things come up.
4. Tickets must be purchased via PayPal. Your PayPal email address will be used for all communications unless otherwise specified in the notes section of the purchase form. Also, if you are purchasing more than one ticket, please provide the names of all attendees.
5. The details are easy this year: we will be in a semi-private area of the restaurant (should have it all to ourselves) but we still ask ticket holders to keep specific details regarding the dinner to a minimum to keep the event as private as possible, so that you may enjoy the intimate atmosphere we are trying to provide without ‘party crashers.’
Each year ticket holders have had an amazing time with several fun surprises! You won’t want to miss out on this exclusive event, so buy your ticket today and be a part of Adrienne’s 2017 dinner party! It’s the perfect way to start the retreat!
