Gilmer Arts Community Theater Meeting!

February 26th from 6:30 PM

At Gilmer Arts in Hawthorne Hall

Even tho we are fighting the flu I want to thank you for those who came to this week’s meeting. A couple things we touched base on.

 

  1. The name of the theatre:

At the meeting we narrowed it down to people’s favorites. They are:

Gilmer Arts Theatre Company

Back Drop Players

  1. Officers:

We also nominated officers… The Nominees are:

Vice President:

Debbi Friend

Carole Moore

 

Secretary:

Melba Gandy

Karen Beauchamp

Thelma Claxton

 

 

If you guys have one you would like to add to the list, please do.

 

Also, we have chosen a play for our May slot. We will be doing STEEL MAGNOLIAS. Auditions will be Feb 27 and 28 at 6-8pm. The script calls for 6 women, but I need much more than that. As a community, we need to pull together to make this the best show Gilmer Arts and The Gilmer Playhouse has seen!

 

I need people to:

Build a Set

Get Props

Get Costumes

Look for decorating items for the set

Paint

Usher

Will Call/Sell tickets

 

If you can do any or all of these, please let me know.

 

Also, February 26 at 6:30 we will have another meeting to pick officers and a name. I ask that you all come and support. Remember: in order to be a community theatre, we need to come together as a community.
