How can I get my personal profile to "like" something on a Facebook for which I'm the admin?

When I "like" something on my a Facebook page where I'm the admin, it shows the page itself as the "liker." How can I get my personal
profile to "like" something on my own page?

I created a Facebook page for a show I'm in. It's listed as a "public figure," not an event. I'm the only admin for the page.
The page only has about a dozen friends, which isn't great for promoting the show each time a performance rolls around. However, my personal profile has a lot of friends, so I figure that anytime I post a status update or a photo on the show page, I should "like" it, because that way 150 people will see it, instead of just a dozen.
But whenever I "like" or comment on something on the show page, Facebook knows that I'm the admin, so it says "[Show Page] likes this" instead of "Flying Saucer likes this."
Is it possible to somehow turn off my admin status when I'm "liking" or commenting on things? It seems like such a waste to post updates for just the dozen people who officially "like" the page.
I know the ultimate answer is to get my 150 friends to "like" the page, but that seems to be a slow process.
Any other help you can offer on how to promote the page (for free) would be appreciated. I want people to come see my show!
