It’s Official. The UN-FUNdraiser was a Blast!

Last Saturday, October 19, The Matthews put on a different kind of Fall fundraiser.  It was decided that instead of begging for money, we would instead celebrate our Friends.  In September, a new campaign began to promote becoming a Friend of The Matthews…and it started at $50!  Every sponsor, advertiser, and person who became our Friend was sent a formal invitation to our UN-FUNdraiser Friends Gala.

Once our Friends arrived, they were able to enjoy appetizers, cash bar, music, magic — the Amazing Nosmo, and parlor games. Two of the evening’s most popular guests were Mattie Opera and her boyfriend, Art Gallery.  They made sure all of our Friends were made to feel welcome and encouraged them to participate on the dance floor and the games.

Got some Big Read learnin’ today

It was a nice size group, considering the mess on the roads due to a massive snowstorm this weekend (over 40″!).  Lots of trees went down due to the storm and clean up is hampering traveling.

Our Executive Director, Sian Young, and Amber Wilde, the Director of Grace Balloch Memorial Library,  made presentations outlining what THE BIG READ SPEARFISH is all about.

The cast, director, prop people, and lighting and sound folks have been busy rehearsing for “The Woman in Black”  play that will debut on Halloween night at 7:30 p.m.

Community theatre is great around here.  Everyone has their “real” jobs during the day and then when evening comes, our community theatre people are here on stage (and back stage) rehearsing.

Soon you’ll be seeing our posters for the play all around town.  Keep an eye out. This play will only run FOUR DAYS!

Theatre On The Run 2013 Officially a Blast!

Between plays…everyone walks to their next venue.

Last Saturday, 9/7, was so much fun at our Theatre on the Run event.  I wish all of those who didn’t get a ticket in time, will try earlier next year.

The 100+ folks who did get tickets were gushing on how much fun this was.

Earlier in the day, the weather was well into the 90s, but by 6pm, the breeze came in and the weather cooled.  Perfect walking weather.  The actors, directors, caterers, and play locations were outstanding.

 

Ukiyo Art Graces our Bellman Stage

bellman-hicks2

Today we were honored to have retired professor emeritus, Richard Hicks, give a presentation on his collection of Japanese Ukiyo art.  Part of his presentation included his family’s history on how they came into having the collection in the first place.

The event was held in the theatre to accommodate the use of our movie screen and LCD project for the powerpoint part of it.  Believe me, learning how to be the tech person on this was challenging.  But, now I am a full fledge power point person!

Next month’s Bellman is the introduction of The Big Read event in Spearfish…October 9!
