Youth Show Updates 6/8/22

Hi parents! As we get closer to shows you’ll start to hear more from me with some of the administrative things related to the final performances with logistics and some volunteer needs. Don’t hesitate to reach out to me if you have questions related to these things – if I can take that stress/coordinating off the director’s plates then I’m happy to do so!

  1. The Sponsorship Deadline for individuals and ad space for inclusion in the programs is JUNE 12 – that’s this Sunday. Please make sure that all forms get turned into directors or submitted through our Square site/Venmo by then. Sponsorships that come in after the deadline will be verbally acknowledged (as well as printed in the Cabaret programs).
  2. You should have received this week an envelope for ticket pre-orders. Pre-orders are for the Friday & Saturday shows only (not the matinees). There is no limit on the tickets you can pre-purchase – just fill out the order blank on the front, enclose the payment (or send via Venmo), and return to a director. Tickets will be held at the door for pick-up each night of performance — these will NOT be coming to you in advance of the show. You can turn these in to directors up through Thursday, June 23.
  3. Also in the envelope is a green order form for program shout-outs if you would like to purchase a square to acknowledge your performer/send a message. These are $10 each and are due back June 12 – there’s a short turn around time here, we apologize! Like many of you have probably felt, the shows have definitely snuck up on us!
  4. IF YOU DID NOT RECEIVE THE ENVELOPE FOR TICKET PRE-ORDERS & SHOUT-OUTS reach out to your director IMMEDIATELY, especially since the shout-outs are due Sunday. If you are out of town and we need to collect information digitally and get payment later that can be arranged.
  5. In the next couple of days, performers will also come home with posters to help advertise the show – please hang these up in places to help spread the word! I can get more printed if directors run out!
  6. Also in the next day or two we will start a social media blitz with the shows – we’ll post on our socials the poster graphics and event pages so you can share that with your digital feed. We will also have tickets available for pre-purchase through our website as well. (Hopefully tomorrow I can get all that set-up and ready to go!)
  7. Also also, as you look ahead, next Wednesday, June 15, will be our Day of Fundraising push on social media. Heather’s goal is to raise $1000 in a single day. We hope you’ll log in and check our social media throughout this day and help share the posts, videos, and messages. This day will culminate in a restaurant night and preview performances from all three summer shows at the Broadway Lounge in Peoria. We will receive 20% of proceeds from this night, so please come out and enjoy dinner and the performances! (Performance schedule: 5:30-American, 6:30-WCKY, 7:30-Cabaret) Directions will be following up with more info for specific cast members needed, attire, times, etc if they haven’t already.
  8. The Matinee performances are still VERY LOW on summer camps – many groups are either not running their camps or are not taking field trips this year. Typically these are packed, but currently we have very little attendance coming. This is why pre-order tickets are not available for this day, but I don’t anticipate it being an issue this year. If you have ideas of other large groups that might want to come take in the matinee shows (camps, senior citizen homes, etc) – please let me know ASAP.
