Theatre lovers in Snellville, Georgia turned out in great numbers last weekend to watch Basil Dawkins' new hit play Guilt Trip.

The play deals with domestic turmoil and stars Oliver Samuels, Ruth Ho-Shing and Dennis Titus. The play opened to a sold-out audience on Saturday, October 29 at the Shiloh high school theatre in Snellville. The second staging on Sunday night at the same venue was also well attended. Both stagings of Guilt Trip were promoted by Georgia-based businessman/events promoter Mikey Sparkle of Mikey Sparkle Production.

"We're pleased with the turnout that we received for both stagings of Guilt Trip. It was a very good production and the patrons enjoyed it. I spoke to Oliver Samuels after the second staging of the play and he told me that he was happy that the play was so warmly received in Georgia," said Sparkle Production team member Jeffrey Hartley.

As a result of the success Mikey Sparkle Production has contracted Samuels to host this year's staging of the annual Mikey Sparkle Christmas party. The event, which is slated to take place on December 17 at the Cultural Center in Stone Mountain, Georgia, will feature popular oldies DJs such as Monte Merritone from the Merritone Family, DJ Mr Carlton, and DJ Cold Rice.

"Our events attract a very diverse audience, and they have come to expect a high standard of entertainment from us, and we will be serving up another fantastic production on the 17th," said Mikey Sparkle.
