The Academy 2016 - The Drum Corpse Bride


Recommended Posts

I didn't go back and read the past few days of this thread so sorry if it's already been mentioned: Academy has a fundraiser where you can purchase your name on a headstone.

How cool is that? Tres cool!

Sorry you didn't catch the bouquet.

Congratulations to Academy director Mark Richardson on winning the 2016 DCI World Class Director of the Year award!

I saw the Allentown show the other night. I have to say that in the 35 years I've been following DCI, I've never enjoyed a show (that's likely to place 11/12) this much. There's a lesson to learn here

Someone needs to put "RECAPS" on one.

This is an ABSOLUTELY BRILLIANT fundraising idea "To Die For!" $500.00 per "personalized en-graved lol, tombstone that will be placed on the field of competition in Indy. How friggen cool is that!, Only 20 of the 40 available for purchase. Who wouldn't want to take a piece of this show home with them!? The Academy is hitting on all cylinders on and off the field. It's not only becoming a show sensation......but a sales sensation, they have all they can do to keep their Glow in the Dark "Drum Corpse Bride" show shirt on the shelf. This is just becoming so much fun to see how this all evolves as the tour progresses.

Went back to watch Academy who I missed. Posted this in that thread but it'll get buried.



Holy cow. The show is still a blast, but they are also REALLY starting to clean up in some weaker areas from last week, notably visual and color guard equipment stuff. Total package this year.



It still hasn't gotten old. It's a show I've watched over and over again this year, and it still feels like the first time.



The emotion of those performers is what really brings it to life. You can have the best show in the world, but it isn't anything if you don't have the membership to really bring it to life and realize the music, drill, and message. And they are doing so at the highest of levels. I was up close and personal in Denton, and the look on their faces as they performed made me feel so warm and fuzzy inside. They have brought to life one of the most enjoyable, fun, entertaining, and well put together shows I have seen since I started following in 2009. It's easily one of my favorites that I have seen in the full seasons I have followed since 2009. Hell, it might even be an all time favorite. I love it that much.



For that, I thank you Academy. Keep being you. WE LOVE IT!

When the multi-cam zoomed in on the percussive skeletons I just burst out laughing. How delightfully clever are those skeletons? This show is so jam packed full of creative motifs I can't even count them all. SO well designed.
