So after a brief but intense time working out the schedule issues, here is my decision. I will keep the Saturday and Sunday matinees as scheduled at 1pm, but change Friday to 5pm so families can enjoy the truck parade. And please remind me ahead of time next year.
Something I would like to point out though, is that we have been doing winter ballet shows for a long time now, and that when community plans are made, I think WE ought to be consulted before other events are planned on the same weekend! We deserve that consideration, in my opinion. Many families participate, as dancers, helpers, and audience, and we are a force to be reckoned with here in SoHum! (Count the kids). Just having my say…. Ha, maybe Santa wants to come to the theater!
Perhaps we can submit the performance schedules in September to the Chamber…. is it up and running these days? Or is there a better avenue for me to contact?
