Parties

jumping mormon squareWe are thrilled to have had the great honor of producing a Thanksgiving sunset dinner cruise, as well as a Christmas/holiday party, for the first national touring company of the smash Broadway hit, The Book of Mormon, in Ft. Lauderdale, FL during the 2013 holiday season.

After the success of these two events, we had the privilege of producing a 2nd Anniversary Party for the second national touring company, during its stay in Miami, in December 2014.

A few words about our service . . .

“. . . Verve Central Productions rose to the occasion of transforming each and every one of my requests into something exceeding my expectations.  Through creativity, expert knowledge, outstanding organizational skills, and a friendly and professional can-do demeanor, all aspects of the event were exceptionally executed.”

“Matt’s enthusiasm and work ethic, and his ability to multi-task and manage several elements in a fast-paced, highly charged environment, is why he proved to be essential to the success of our events.  While many refer to themselves as event planners, with a background in theater and live entertainment, Matt is a true event producer; not only “planning,” but executing, managing, and following up, through to the last minute.”
