Maybe this should be and Off Topical Ointment but I finger you people would, should, could, shed some light on or your views this subject and possibly help me to see it differently. I don't know why I would, but ... (Wow, all in one sweep!)
There is an old school in the West Seneca area that has been taken over by some soul who quite honestly can't afford to further renovate. They demolished about a third of the old school, abated all the hazardous materials up to and including asbestos. Cleaned the exterior and started renovating the interior. What is left for renovation is six large size classrooms that can awesomely used as practice, storage, costume shop, music/vocal instruction class, and choreography/dance class and prop shop. There is a decent size auditorium with a small balcony. The stage isn't that large yet would be perfect for a youth theatre, small shows and concerts. The main floor needs a floor in so much that all that is down is sub flooring. Anything and everything else pertaining to theatre would need to be renovated. There's a nice small hall leading to the main theatre area and to the balcony. A box office area is to the right of the main entrance, which was probably a receptionist area when the school was in use.
Why do I share this with you? I don't know. Good question! No, wait come back! I can't come back I don't know how it works!
Hemingway, My dream was always to own or run a small local theatre where inspiring children in our area and outside could come and learn the tools of the trade, acting! Also, since the advent of GPO, it would be cool to have many of you actually play in the pit orchestra or even put together concerts featuring compositions of our forum members. I feel it can be done but it would require a ton of hard work and lots of moola! Grants! Who can write Grants?!
So, there you have it or don't have it. Which ever you find suited to you.
I have a CD of the interior of the auditorium as it stands presently. Be that it may, it's a dream. An impossible dream.
Just thought I would Cher.
Yeah, I know...
