Permanent Collection- It’s a wrap!

March 21, 2008


 Post Permanent Collection Aftermath…Say, anyone want a piece of fake African art?

Mahalo to all of you who made Permanent Collection a smashing success! We are thrilled to have had half of our shows sold out for this compelling drama. We must thank the playwright Thomas Gibbons for writing this play as it was a timely opportunity to explore the racial situation in this country in a way that is rarely brought to the stage.

The experience of promoting Permanent Collection was truly remarkable. We had the unique opportunity to share the experience of Permanent Collection with members of the ACLU, National Conflict Resolution Center, Sudanese Refugee Network, the Executive Staff of the San Diego Museum of Art, and many other guests.

Here are the final numbers…read ’em and weap!  

1,800 Reservations

427 middle and high school students reached

108 individual donors supporting the show

30 volunteer ushers

10 sold out performances

10 paintings hung in the ARTE NEGRO exhibit (1 sold!)

7 actors and stage managers paid Equity wages

1.5 administrative staff (.5- Hey, that’s me!)

It took us five days to load-in lights, sound, costumes and set into 10th Avenue Theatre… and only three hours to load out!

Stay tuned for more behind-the-scenes coverage of our next production of …Night Sky
