Ending the Season with a Bang!
This past Friday night was opening night of the last show in our Signature Series – Red. We’ve been looking forward to this gripping drama about Mark Rothko all season long and now it’s officially beginning its run!
Along with a fantastic performance in the Goldman, we had a variety of events going on. When patrons arrived at the theater, we gave them an option to add drawings to two canvases with red paint (canvases generously sponsored by Sam Flax). It was a big hit – lots of creativity stemmed from the patrons! In our pre show chat, Richard Colvin, a curator from Maitland Art Center, went into detail of Mark Rothko’s past and his fascinating artwork. Richard was joined by director, Patrick Flick, and some of our super talented designers.
Edible Orlando once again provided scrumptious appetizers including gourmet Texas chili & strawberry flan. Yum! The food was a big winner with the crowd – they chowed down of those treats quickly as they talked with other patrons, cast, and crew of Red. The party carried on well over into the late night hours.
All in all, this was the perfect closer to an exciting season! Opening nights have become THE events to be at for both the staff and patrons of the theater. We have greatly enjoyed supplying these happenings to you all – hopefully you’ll see more for the 12/13 season!
