Thanks for helping to make the magic happen
I would like to thank everyone who came out to see Broadway On Bowen last weekend. Your support has been truly overwhelming and humbling at the same time. To the entire cast, crew and musicians, I thank you all for your commitment and hard work. You made the magic happen.
To our Bowen Island sponsors: Tuscany Restaurant, First Credit Union, Cates Pharmacy and The General Store, Andrew Todd Conservators, we thank you for your generosity and support. We couldn’t have done it without you. And to our off-island sponsors: North Shore Law, raumplus and Hemlock Printers, once again, we offer our sincere gratitude for helping us create Broadway Number 2.
Our apologies to many of you who could not get tickets – we sold out all four shows in record time.
We promise to do more shows next time around. Venues were simply not available.
When you have 27 members in the cast, four musicians and five technicians, scheduling a community theatre run on Bowen Island becomes a very complicated undertaking in itself. In fact, I’d call it a miracle!
Finding ample, available, affordable rehearsal space is also a huge challenge. Although people were very accommodating to us, their priorities are to serve their own needs and those of their regular clients, thus we had to split up our rehearsals into four different spaces over the seven weeks. Sometimes it got very confusing.
So guess what folks – what do you say we build a dedicated performance space?
Bowen Island deserves to have a home for performance to call our own. If you build it – they will come, as my family did - spending more than $1,600 in one day on tickets, dinner, B & B, lunch and gifts at local businesses. And that’s how we all become winners.
