Pleasing the Audience
After much discussion , thought and a bit of juggling with dates, the Community Centre is about to send off it's choices of shows for 2014 to Cheshire Rural Touring Arts. In a few weeks we will know which of our bids have been successful. We still hope to present two children's shows, a music evening and a piece of theatre. We have also asked to take, at the unsubsidised rate, a piece of children's theatre for December next year.
By definition, the events on offer will be small scale, innovative and a bit different. By definition also, they will be highly professional, creative and entertaining. We hope that they will appeal to those of you who enjoy the experience of live theatre at a modest cost and those parents who want to encourage their children to get pleasure from the non-digital world.
The Community Centre recently has had some success and some failure in putting on events. Like Hollywood producers, we decided to repeat things that had already been successful, after all, it worked for the Star Wars franchise and many of us will have enjoyed Ice Age 3 and Shreck 3, to name but two. The decision to repeat 'Allo 'Allo in February next year has proved an excellent one, with nearly all the tickets having been sold already. However the attempted repeat of both the Fashion Show and the Junior Disco have had exactly the opposite response. Though the Committee thought they had replicated the Fashion Show exactly, the decision to hold it on a Saturday rather than mid-week, might well have been the factor that made ticket sales so poor. As for the total lack of any youngsters — bar one — for the Disco last Friday, it is harder to find the cause. For some reason, it may have been deemed 'uncool' to come along, so no-one did!
It is tempting for the Committee to indulge in a curmudgeonly bout of the grumps — "ungrateful youngsters, unsupportive people". But, despite being briefly pleasurable, this is totally unhelpful. At the end of the day, the audience will come if we put on things they want to see, no more, no less. So, if you have any ideas and suggestions, please get in touch on 01829 741962 or visit our Facebook page.
See you all at the Box Office next year!
