  5. Fall Production Thoughts: Into the Woods

    1. Ad Sales: Laurie Logan. Family Ads slightly lower, still had a strong sponsorship. There was discussion about creating theme templates specific to shows to model to  new families. We should continue with offering “one liners.”

    2. Concessions: excellent results

    3. Tickets: (FYI: a portion of the ticket sales is only money that goes into school account)

    4. Program: Laurie Logan. Many eyes are needed. Identifying students who are capable and willing will be important. We currently have 2 students apprenticing.  750 programs were ordered this year. Next year, we should order less.

    5. Publicity: Posters (Andrea), our digital sign. We need someone in charge of the Family Network and a Facebook page to better advertise prior to the show. There was discussion of improving our advertising to the other schools.

    6. Priority Seating:  We will reserve 48 seats per night. If you have more than one child, you can have double the seats (2/child).
