April 2018 Update & SPONSORSHIP REQUEST!
It looks like spring is finally starting to arrive, and I know we’re all more than ready for it!
Spring is a very busy time for Riverfront. Right now, we’re putting the final touches on Seussical! – which opens next month, May 25-27th at The Olde Walkerville Theatre. So that’s very exciting. Our set construction will begin soon, the costumes are nearly ready, we’ve got our Juniors back after their winter break and are incorporating them into the show, and things are ticking along there! Posters are being picked up today so you’ll begin to see them around the city and county this weekend!
Tickets for Seussical are available through Eventbrite and at the The Olde Walkerville Theatre itself (as of next week). They will also be available at the box office one hour before each performance, or from any of your cast members. Lots of options to buy tickets!
In other news, we are looking for a sponsor to help us with an alternative storage plan – we will be letting one of our rented storage units go, and purchasing a large shed in which to house our larger set pieces, props and lumber.
In the long run, this will represent savings for us. In the short term, it’s a $2000 expense. Riverfront would be very keen to secure someone willing to help cover or assist with that purchase, which we will be making this month. Charitable tax receipts are issued to our sponsors. Please contact us (Riverfronttheatrecompany@gmail.com) if you would like to help RTC with this purchase, or sponsor us in any way! Donation buttons are also available here at our website and on our Facebook page if you would like to make individual, rather than corporate, donations.
Finally – although we aren’t quite ready for a public announcement of our plan yet, we have decided on our productions for next season. That announcement – and it’s a pretty exciting set of shows, we think – will be coming very soon, so stay tuned!
