As I wrote about two weeks ago (while in mid-run), we just had our early summer theatre production. It was, in my opinion, a very successful run...though bittersweet to see it end after two weekends (and six shows). We had a great and consistent audience, which speaks well to the attempt at doing a show over two weekends in June. Our next board meeting will reveal the "final" financial result of our activities.
As a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, we try to produce shows which will break even financially while still providing unique arts opportunities for our patrons. In other words, do great theatre and such without requiring the most familiar/recognized shows in our repertoire. Seeing this show go over as well as it did is heartening to our cause, and I look forward to our next theatrical production coming up in September. In the meantime, we've got some concerts lined up and will have a quieter mid-late summer. Time to relax and enjoy it!
Don't forget to take in some art or something produced by a local arts organization this summer! Even if you think it's "not your thing," you might be surprised!
