March 28, 2022 Agenda

Grap’s Wine Room/Zoom
7:30 PM






I have continued calling sponsors on my list, I will be fully done before the night of one acts. Unfortunately I have not had much luck with sponsors lately, I am hoping to get a few more before the season gets in swing. I did apply for a couple more grants, including Midco, probably won’t hear for another month or so. I did find out we didn’t get the Walmart grant, I will look into when we can apply again.

State Arts Conference

The State Arts Conference is coming up in May. It does cost some money to attend. I applied for a scholarship to attend and I will find out in April if I was chosen for that. If I am not, I think it would be good for me to attend and network with other arts organizations in the state. I will put in a request for money to attend if I don’t receive the scholarship. If anyone else is interested in attending, let me know. Might be good to go together.

Sound Issues

Anna and I went and saw the play Urinetown in Rapid for BHCT. It was great but what I really noticed was how good the sound was. This has led me to realize we really need to address the sound issue at the Rec Center. I will reach out to Nate on this. It will probably require a plan between us, the city and the school district to try and tackle this. I have already improved sound in the theater over the last few months, but it still has a ways to go.

Other Community Theaters

I am going to reach out to all other community theater organizations in the area to see if there is anything we can do to help each other out in the theater world. I will let you know what I find out.

Individual Sponsorships

I have been looking around at other community theaters and I wonder if we should look at individual sponsorships. Set a level for people or families to donate, and have different levels to it and then promote them on the website and in programs. We can tie it in with memberships as well. Might be something that can offset some of our struggles with business sponsorships.

I should be back for practice next week. Allie Verry is directing one of the shows and assistant directing the others. She will handle practices for me this week.

      • We are set for a hybrid virtual/in-person Halloween show on Oct 29 at Venue 519. We haven’t picked a show yet. Once we have I will come to the board with a budget, this should be a cheaper show in the grand scheme of things.
    • Christmas Show
      • We have begun talking with the city about a partnership around Christmas that will include our Christmas show, A Christmas Carol. We will be creating a small committee to work on this project, mostly in what pertains to our partnership with the city. The show itself will be Dec 9 – 11.
    • Misc
      • Angela has set us up for a booth at River Fest on June 11 and Oktoberfest on Oct 15. We will need volunteers to be at the booth for both events. We will be partnering with FAB for both booths. If you are interested in volunteering, let me know. We also want to have a float at the July 4 parade this year. We are beginning talks on what needs to be done for that to happen- Nathan is head of this event. Through CC we have created a document that outlines responsibilities for directors and producers for shows, we will start using that this summer with our directors.
