American Idol in the Office?

Talk about a catchy, attention-grabbing subject line!

Liza and I got an e-mail yesterday with this exact pitch and were eager to learn that Diana DeGarmo, of American Idol fame, is in town revising her role as Doralee Robers for 9 to 5 the Musical at the Peace Center in Greenville.

And what better way to promote the “9 to 5” lifestyle than to take on a set of office challenges?  Scene on 7‘s Jamarcus Gaston worked with Diana recently to put her office skills to test – and used FCPR as the place to do it! She aced making coffee and has pretty sharp typing skills!

Part of our job as PR professionals is to pitch media contacts and outlets on ideas that might resonate with their audiences – and it’s fun to be a resource to reporters in other ways too!

The promo made some of our staffers want to go and check out 9 to 5 at the Peace Center some time this week.(We just can’t get that catchy 9 to 5 tune out of our head..) Has any one seen it?  If so, let us know what you think!

Also, thanks to Alison Storm and Taryn Scher for making it all happen!
