STEEL MAGNOLIAS: Five shows. Five sold out houses. What to do? Add a sixth, matinee show on Sunday, Oct. 11!
After polling the cast and crew — and I checking with board members, director Suzanne Wilson-Wuest checking cast and crew — it was decided to add the sixth show. As always, reservations are highly suggested because I believe it stands a good chance to fill up quick. Call 393-0676 for reservations.
A special thanks to the cast, crew and volunteers for helping make this show happen as well being flexible to add a sixth show. Too many people wanting to watch a show is great problem to have!
CHRISTMAS SHOW: Sandy Goad has volunteered to direct a Christmas show. Tentatively, the auditions are set for Oct. 18 and 19 at 6:30 p.m. at the Playhouse. The show is called Christmas at Home, is a one-act play and includes several adult roles and several teenager roles. She also may add some caroling, etc., to the whole event. She'll need volunteers, etc. Show dates are Dec. 10-13.
ROCK BAND: An Xbox 360 Rock Band competition is tentatively scheduled to take place Oct 31 at 2 p.m. at the Playhouse. This is being organized by several hospital folks. The goal of the competition is to raise money to buy kids in hospitals video games systems etc. while being treated for their illness. It goes a good cause. The board approved making the Playhouse available for this event.
For those who don't know, Rock Band is a video game where up to four players play in a band. It is kind of like karaoke, except for a "band."
Your "busy busy" president,
Yes, one more show for "Steel Magnolias"...and it's filling up fast!
And mark your calendars for auditions for "Christmas at Home", 10/18 and 10/19 at 6:30 PM at the Playhouse.
