Some ACT Items from Terry

Some personal items from Terry for mulling and discussion, by email or at the next ACT Board meeting.

Here are some personal items from me for mulling and discussion, by email or at the next ACT Board meeting, on January 4 (Warehouse 4-6 pm).
1. TPEI Theatre Festival (March 25-28)

Monique intends to put in a scene from OFFICE HOURS.  I intend to put in, and act myself, a scene from a one-man play about Samuel Johnson.  (Some of you know that I have had the writing of such a play in mind for a long time.  I never got past the research stage, however, and now that research has uncovered the very play I would have written, only better, by an American playwright, who just yesterday gave me permission to use it.)  I mentioned this possibility to Emily—only a possibility, at that point—who would be coordinating our application(s) for the deadline of January 9.  Mine does not have to be ACT-sponsored at all, if there is a problem in having two (and Monique’s certainly has priority).

I’ll be looking for a props person at some point for this entry.

  1. “Amahl and the Night Visitors…  Carl has also sung in it himself, twice, (3 times, first in the chorus - my first opera cbm) during the even earlier dark ages of his existence as an American…”
     
    I’ve seen the light!

  2. Regarding using the ‘Between Christmas and New Year’ time slot for Amahl. ACT has used this in-between time twice before. Both times at the Mackenzie Theatre. First time was for ‘A Child’s Garden of Verses’. Second time we tried two shows, ‘Violet in the Snow’ geared towards young people in the afternoon and ‘Gift of the Magi’ for adults in the evening slot. We lost money both years. The second year’s effort (Violet / Magi) held the record for biggest loss for a long time.

    Certainly part of the problem was the cost of the Mackenzie Theatre, however that wasn’t the only problem. The bottom line was that people just didn’t come. Audiences weren’t small, they were non-existant. I personally was blown away. I really believed this time slot would have worked!
