Last Saturday evening Playhouse Merced had its first Season Preview, and it was a lovely evening. Attendees got to see a piece from each of the 12 shows that are going to be presented in the 2007–2008 season.
The Season Preview gave Playhouse Merced an opportunity to showcase its talent and also give the attendees a reason to be curious and delighted about the upcoming season. I think season ticket sales will increase because of it.
One of the things that occurred to me was how much people enjoy any opportunity to come together for fun and conversation. The lobby of the Tower Theater was lined with tables of food. Soft drinks, beer, and wine could be ordered at the theater counter.
I asked a couple of people today if they enjoyed it. The response was unanimous. “We had a good time.”
Laughter and good cheer are contagious.
