MemBOOship Meeting Oct 23 (Costumes?)

THIS JUST IN: Upping the fun factor, Curtain Players coming to the Sunday October 23 general meeting are encouraged to come in costume and bring treats to share.  President Jill Taylor hopes for an evening that will allow for social interaction and networking in addition to the agenda. New volunteers are welcome.

The Curtain Players Board of Directors remind its community in theatre of a membership meeting Sunday October 23. The gathering is set for 6:30 PM at the 5691 Harlem Road playhouse. New volunteers and those interested in learning more about the organization are encouraged to attend.

According to President Jill Taylor, the agenda is expected to include an announcement of plans for the community theatre’s return to Westerville’s Alum Creek Park amphitheater for an outdoor production in June 2017. Curtain Players and the City of Westerville Parks & Recreation Department staged Robin Hood and the Secret of Sherwood in the park last June. The success of that production prompted the board to approve a similar production next summer.

There is one vote planned. The board is asking a decision on a by-laws change that will increase the number of elected board members from the current six to eight beginnig with the 2017-2018 season.

A membership meeting is a rally of Curtain community members – veterans and newcomers – not only to organize a production team for that theatre-in-the-park project, but to also update members on company news, solicit volunteers for committees, initiatives, and events, to vote on proposed by-laws changes, and to network.
