Youth Shows Update – 7/3

Hello! Some important deadlines coming this week:

*Last day to turn in pre-sale orders to directors to guarantee your initial allotment of tickets. I will touch base with directors and try to return these ASAP (a few have already been sent back) – but once you’ve turned in envelopes to directors that locks in your purchase even if you don’t have tickets in hand yet. Tickets that come in this weekend will probably not be handed out until we get to the park depending on when I can get to directors to exchange. If you do not want to pay via venmo but need to place an order for your pre-reserve allotment, contact me via remind before the end of the day Sunday to have tickets held for you.

Order blanks that are turned into directors/communicated to me after July 4 are not guaranteed to be filled if no tickets remain.

*Remaining tickets go on sale to cast on a first come/first serve basis. I will create a page that lists the number of tickets available for each performance and you will be able to contact me directly to secure additional tickets and then send money to directors at the next rehearsal. I will keep that page up to date as requests come in. Look for this page to be sent out mid-day Monday. Each show has a hard cap of 75 seats due to space in the pavilion — while it looks like all performances should have some tickets available next week, we do not guarantee that there will be tickets available when they go on public sale or for purchase on day of. We do not want to have to turn people away – please make sure to communicate the urgency of getting tickets in advance – I know this is new for those of you returning to the youth shows as we haven’t had such limitations in past summers.

*Last day to sign-up for set-up and tear-down crews. We could use 1 more person for setup and 2-3 for teardown. If we do not have the necessary number of volunteers by July 5th, then we will have to make cuts to the amount of lighting/sound and logistical support that is offered during that week in order to make the workload manageable for the number of volunteers available. We have very few options in what can be cut, and unfortunately these are some of the most desired elements the directors want to work with.

*Program shout-outs are due to directors.

*Sponsorships / program ads must be received in order to be printed in the program. Any received after this date will be verbally acknowledged but will not be in print. Our Sponsorship program is responsible for 50% of our operating budget in a normal year, allowing us to keep ticket prices lower than any other surrounding community theater – this year it becomes even more important with audience capacities severely limited.

*Any remaining tickets will go on public sale through our website. We do not guarantee that there will be seats available for every performance. The audience size remains capped at 75.

*We are in need of individuals to work the ticket table on the Sunday performances – a few slots still remain – see here if you can assist:
