It has been a long time since our last General Membership Business Meeting. So, we want to break the spell. The evening of Monday, December 11th has been tentatively booked as our next meeting! Some of the items featured in this meeting will include:
Comp Ticket Policy and Membership
3, 5 and 10 year goals
Tours of the theater
Any other topics you wish to bring up!
We will also introduce you to your new Board of Directors as well as give you a chance to meet our various committee heads.
To help with this meeting, there will be a brief survey asking you to identify what CLT does well – as well as areas in which we could improve. The survey will focus on 3 particular areas: Artistic, Building, and Operations. Please keep an eye out for this survey and spend just a few minutes giving us much needed feedback.
All CLT Members are welcome and encouraged to attend. We want to hear from you!
We hope you will join us and we look forward to seeing you there!
Bernie & Pauline Fortier, Ushers
What made you want to start ushering for CLT? Our daughter was involved in her first play, Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, when she was 12. As a result of her involvement with CLT and later with the Lewiston H.S. drama program, we became more interested in theater and thus, began ushering at CLT.
How long have you been serving as volunteer ushers? Approximately 13 years.
What's your favorite part about volunteer ushing? Greeting and welcoming patrons
What does the role of a volunteer usher entail? The most important role is to greet people and make them feel welcome.
What has been your favorite musical to usher? Favorite Musical: Joseph and Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat
Favorite straight show? Favorite straight show: Proof
What's your life like outside of the theater? Bernie is a Latin teacher at Lewiston High school and enjoys playing hockey. Pauline is a Mary Kay consultant, volunteers at Seniors Plus as a Medicare Counselor, and volunteers for AARP as a tax preparer.
What's one show you would like to usher for at CLT? Sound of Music
If you were trapped on a desert island but had access to the soundtrack of just one musical, which musical would you want that to be? Hamilton
Why do you think that community theater is an asset to our communities? CLT allows local people to showcase their talent. It also exposes people to a wide assortment of shows and is an important component of making Lewiston Auburn a major destination for the arts.
