Jonathan West here. Managing Director, and all.
Okay, so, Friday afternoon at The Playhouse. Hum drum, right? Oh, no. Far from it.
First of all, allow me to present you with this tale. Sarah our Box Office Manager just walked into the office and told me an unbelievable story about the sale of 26 Subscriptions she just took. Believe me, I call any sale of 26 Subscriptions an unbelievable story, but this one takes the cake.
A lady came to our Box Office today to buy the 26 Subscriptions. She and her co-workers had just been sacked, down sized, laid off, shown the door. It was a sad day for the whole lot of them.
But these downsized workers all looked at each other and said, "Hey, we all really like each other, let's keep doing stuff together." So they pooled their money (yes, some of it from their separation packages) and decided that the fun thing they would do together in the coming year was to go to plays at The Playhouse. I mean, seriously,a story like this could make a fella cry.
So, to the All State Alumni Group (LOVE THE NAME!) I say, "We salute you!"
Continuing with the show portion of SHOW AND TELL, my Aussie friend Andrew Bednall from the Mayfair Rotary Club shot me an e-mail today. The Mayfair Rotary Club has bought out the July 31st performance of HAIR for a fundraiser and in the spirit of "getting their groove on", some of the members were recently caught promoting in a fairly cool, not decidedly traditional Rotarian way. Here for your viewing pleasure are our Rotarian friends.
Pretty glad I didn't play hooky today, I must say.
