During the meeting with my co-director last night, we began discussing venues where we might take this melodrama. We could use the church, of course, but since we want this to be a community outreach, we’re concerned that performing at a church would limit the community response.
We’d been praying about this for weeks, and no solution had presented itself.
We were just sitting and talking in the cafe, and like a light switch turning on, I suddenly remembered something. I have a good friend who runs something of a theatre company near Park City (not really a theatre company, but I’m not sure what else to call it; it’s a place to get dinner and a show). I had completely forgotten about her until sitting down to coffee with my co-director.
So I emailed her this morning. Trouble was, the email address I have for her is ancient. I wasn’t even sure if it were still active or not. So I prayed over my email and hit the send button. It didn’t come back, so I figured at least the account was still active.
About an hour or so later, I got a reply.
My friend told me in the email that she was highly interested in allowing us to use their facility for a greatly reduced rate. She also gave me another email address to use that she checks more frequently. She told me then that she never checks the address I had used, but for some reason she had checked it today.
Quite a coincidence, wouldn’t you say?
Nothing’s set in stone, but at least we have one option available now! Yay!!
