Center seats audience-ready [UPDATED]Published 10:24am Thursday, September 19, 2013 Updated 12:24pm Thursday, September 19, 2013
The center is pleased to announce that we officially have all of our seats installed at A Center for the Arts. We are ready for a big audience this Saturday night for Grammy-Award winning flutist Rhonda Larson.
There are still a few tickets available and we don’t want you to regret missing this show after it’s over. We are excited to be kicking off our 2013-14 Center Series season (“Normal is Never Amazing”) with such an incredible performer.
We do ask for your patience and understanding while we work on the finishing touches for our theater renovation. We’re not quite done yet. We still need to touch up the paint job after all the seat installation work and we haven’t quite finished numbering and lettering all the seats and rows.
We will try our best to clearly mark rows and seats to make sure everyone can find their reserved seat.
Speaking of seats, we are still running our seat plaque campaign. With all of the changes and renovation work in the theater this summer, we are still looking for people to purchase seat plaques to be attached to the back of a theater seat of your choice.
We have already sold quite a few and we hope to have those installed by Saturday night so you can see an example of how they will look. All the money raised by the plaques will go toward the theater renovation.
There are plans to paint our lobby to match the new paint job in the theater. We still have work to do our on “sky box” seating. We continue with the updating and renovation of our dressing room facilities beneath the stage as well.
There has been a lot of work happening behind the scenes thanks to many hard-working volunteers and generous donors. We are truly grateful for all the help.
Besides preparation for our big season opener this Saturday, we are also trying to build enthusiasm for our Fall Fundraiser and Annual Meeting Event (F.A.M.E.) on Saturday, Oct. 26. We are excited for the fun evening we have planned, which includes playing the game show “Name That Tune.”
We are also thrilled to let you know that one of the items we will be auctioning off that evening is a week stay for up to six people at a villa in Roccantica, Italy.
There’s never a dull moment here at A Center for the Arts. We always seem to be moving at a million miles an hour with present, immediate future, and very distant future events, all vying for our undivided attention.
It’s busy around here folks, and we’re very glad that it is.
We know we aren’t the only ones with crazy schedules, but we sincerely hope you’ll make some time in yours to visit us at the theater.
