After spending some time with the documents and conferring with Ms. Avery and Central Services, I am thrilled to share that our requirements have not changed based on last week's Phase 3 extension. So, A Christmas Story will proceed using the same protocols used for Little Shop of Horrors.
Tickets for all performances are now on sale online.
I am also looking for some larger props and set items for this particular show. Since you never know what people have in storage, I thought I would put it out there and see anyone has a lead. There will definitely be more coming, but for now, these are the big ones. Please let me know if you are able to help with any of these items.
Good Evening Parents!
The update today regarding COVID-19 regulations has necessitated some changes to our upcoming production of A Christmas Story. Our audiences for this performance will be limited to 10. We can certainly look at adding some performances to allow more individuals to see the show, but the primary issue is financial. This is where I would like to get some input from you. Each performance, regardless of the number in attendance costs us $110. Obviously, 10 audience members purchasing a $10 ticket won't even allow us to break even. I am never a fan of raising ticket prices, but I am not sure what else I can do in this situation. At this time, I am looking at increasing ticket prices to $15. Assuming we can fill all 10 seats at each performance, this would allow us to cover the royalties for 8 shows and give us about $300 to go toward production expenses (paint, costumes, props, etc.)
Is the acceptable? Will we be able to fill the seats? Is there a better alternative? Please share your thoughts with me! You can respond to the text message you received, comment on this post, or email me at email@example.com.
Thanks in advance for sharing your thoughts!
