Finance Report

There was a profit of £299.39 made from Love Begins at 50 which ran for only two nights, therefore a respectable profit.

Production Update

NODA show report received from Anne Key-Huckerby who had attended Love Begins at 50. She felt that the show was well cast but was slightly critical of a number of missed sound effect cues and the need for prompting.Ticket sales were 154 over the two nights approximately half online and half from the box office.

The next production will be the music show which is to be called “A Century of Sound”and will run from 21st to 23rd June 2017. Jackie is working through the production checklist and the aim is for poster to be completed shortly and tickets to be on sale from the second week in May.

It was agreed that Steph should be copied in to the TicketSource emails so that she is up to date with how ticket sales are progressing.
