Arts and Tech Converge as Gregson Takes the Stage at Warehouse Theatre

Rick Gregson, Founder and Senior Consultant at Convergent Technologies, took the stage at Greenville’s Warehouse Theatre Thursday night–well, technically, he was near the stage, and he definitely was not acting!

As an ardent fan and sponsor of Warehouse productions, Gregson and his associates were invited to preview the world premiere of “Power of Sail,” a riveting drama crafted by screenplay scribe and playwright Paul Grellong. Prior to the performance, Gregson joked about the irony of an IT specialist addressing an audience of theatre patrons. The owner of a company that specializes in data migration, his love for live performances began several years ago when he noticed the way shows engaged his children.

“At this point in my professional life, the technical pieces are relatively easy. It’s the human aspect you have to consider when you’re dealing with any type of transition a company and its people may be going through,”Gregson said. “In a roundabout way, the arts community in Greenville helped shape who I am as a person and what Convergent is as a company.”

Critics are calling “The Power of Sail” an unpretentious commentary on the battles of modern society. Gregson added to that, “I won’t give the plot away, but it’s got some controversial issues. It doesn’t take sides; it just makes us think–and it’s entertaining at the same time.”

“The Power of Sail” will be at the Warehouse Theatre through March 31. Show times and tickets are available at warehousetheatre.com.

POWER OF SAIL – World Premiere Thriller from Paul Grellong

By Rick Gregson

When I first moved to Greenville, I was looking for something to do with my children, and I quickly realized that live performances, whether outdoors in the park or inside the Warehouse Theatre, engaged them and gave us memorable quality time together.

Convergent Technologies has since sponsored multiple Warehouse productions and become a proud patron of the local arts scene and our Upstate community.

This spring, Convergent will sponsor the “Power of Sail,” which runs March 15-31. I am very excited about this upcoming performance and hope you will join my family and me in support of the Warehouse Theatre.
