Waiting for Godot

actually there were over 80 people at saturday's performance(not 30). and putting up a show in a community full of apathetic college students with NO outside funding or support of any kind is not easy. let alone having an audience of 300 people for a depressing existentialist play...
please be mindful of the dedicated work you are critiquing.

Re: Waiting for Godot

Ah. Mmm, sorry, I can't count. ^^;; That's why I never did the audience headcounts back in Black Maskers....
::bows apologetically:: I'm really sorry, didn't mean to be so harsh. You would have gotten a better view had I not come from Revival, which was so full of people and so utterly full of energy. The outside funding/support however, shouldn't have that much to do about it? I might be completely wrong about this.. I was never on the board of directors in the Black Maskers (my high school drama club) nor a chief/high-up position in WST (www.wst.org)... but honestly, I believe most of their (Black Maskers and WST) funding come from what they make and fundraise... they didn't have any outside funding or support either... (our high school did not provide club funds. We had to generate our own. And WST... probably had local business sponsors, but a good amount of the revenue probably came from the $20 mandatory "donation", as well as inside fundraisers, such as date auctions. Come to think of it, Black Maskers had local business sponsors as well, but that was just to get the programs printed, I think.) they're just bigger. And thus could do more. (Get more audience members through personal connections. Advertise and make their presence larger, etc.) The students at my high school were apathetic as well, our audience was composed of friends, teachers, and parents.
Again, I'm sorry... However, do tell, who are you?
