ATY's Summer Conservatory is in full swing and one of the things we do is get the kids pumped up about selling tickets to see the shows. One of the ways we get them excited is by offering special prizes for the top-selling kids of the day, week etc. and to the cast that sells the most tickets - things like t-shirts, copies of the new Harry Potter, headshots for the top sellers of each Conservatory, getting to dress up the staff member of their choice for a day, a chance for a trip to Hawaii....
We have been challenged, as a staff, to sell 10 tickets each this week and I need your help! The shows are July 29-31 and August 5-7. The first weekend we have the musical "Once on this Island", "Julius Caesar" with only 9 actors (8 of them women) and the Canadian legend "Inuk and the Sun". The second weekend is "A Wrinkle in Time", an original Musical the kids are making themselves from top to bottom (I can't even get a hint about that one so far) and a special double feature - The Radio Show "The Adventures of Tommy Higgins, a Boy with Imagination. This weeks's episode: Tommy Goes to Camp", where the kids do all the voices and sound effects live on stage, and a screening of the Movie (Aliens, I swear, one of the segments is about shape-shifting/body-snatching aliens.)
Tickets are just $10 for adults, $8 for kids under 18. If you are interested in more info about a show, I can post it and give exact times. If you can't come but want to help, every $10 donation counts as a ticket sold.
The best part - any tickets I sell I can put into a kid's envelope to help them on their way to a prize. if you know some of our kids, you can request helping them. (for example, geolinguist, your Lady Montagues are in Julius Caesar and the young lady you thought was so talented is in the musical. scooterpbakes, our boy Jake is doing tech as usual - and tech is just a few tickets behind Julius Caesar for top sales)
So, in conclusion, please, help some kids!
