First, rehearsals are coming along swimmingly. If you haven’t already made plans, consider reserving tickets for Six Characters in Search of an Author for one of our six performances: Friday-Sunday, September 23-25, or Thursday-Saturday, September 29-October 1. Tickets are $12 ($10 for students and seniors). All performances are at 8pm except Sunday at 2. The show is approximately an hour and a half (no intermission). For more info, visit our web site at http://www.OutOftheBlackBox.org/ or the Greenbelt Arts Center’s site at http://www.greenbeltartscenter.org/. Note: The play contains mature themes and language. Parental discretion is advised.
Secondly, we’ll be helping to support the Greenbelt Arts Center during the Greenbelt Labor Day Festival. Watch for me on Monday, from 11am-2pm at the GAC booth.
Third, BIG NEWS!!! From the Bowie Star, a Gazette paper: School system could sign off on arts center this month, Thursday, Sep. 1, 2005 http://www.gazette.net/stories/090105/bowinew215508_31888.shtml (Go read the article!) This is the information we’ve been waiting for. It means we could see the BCPA open to the public as early as this coming spring/summer! We’re planning a summer project for 2006, and will continue to get the word out about us, but in the meantime, this is huge news. When things have been finalized and we’ve had an opportunity to discuss our company with management for the new building (pending selection of the management individuals), we’ll post more here.
All in all, things are progressing at a steady rate!
Hope we’ll see you soon!
