Good time had by all at Parker's "A Christmas Carol"

Image
Congratulations to the cast, crew, director, and producers of "A Christmas Carol" by Parker Arts Council for a fantastic production!Doug Tisdale set the pace with his ultra-energetic portrayal of Ebenezer Scrooge, bringing tears to the eyes of the most serious banker... The puppeteers behind the ghosts of Christmas Past, Present, and Future made us grownups believe and had the restless youngsters sitting on the edge of their seats. And remember the crew who did a great job turning a boat house into a theater, and the entire cast who made the production work. Look to the Parker Arts Council for more theatrical entertainment in 2011.

Wishes for 2011 & Beyond :: list your arts wish and start working on it

We're on the brink of a New Year and a decade: 2011-2020. Can that be right? At the end of the next decade we'll be looking at 2021, and wondering where the time went? Yes, and we have our work cut out for us lovers, doers, and experiencers of arts and culture here in SoHa... Let's think about what we want to see and happen in the worlds of arts and culture and let's get to it... and to do that let's get like-minded people together in that mission - such as, First Night 2012 and thereafter; a virtual warehouse of costumes and props; and a regional mentoring program by local artists and performers. Start by sending what you'd like to see happen to now@sohappens.com!
