Dear members, patrons, and visitors,
Though old news by now, Hurricane Irene, last August, caused MHCA to lose all of its supporting equipment that was stored in the basement of Memorial Hall, including all the costumes, props, sets, furniture, spare lighting fixtures and packs, replacement bulbs, and dressing room/green room appointments that had been acquired and/or built over the past fifteen seasons. To produce a full season of events again, MHCA needs to replace much of this. Thus, in its SIXTEENTH season, MHCA is devoting itself to R & R, recovering and rebuilding. Seven events are planned to help this along. Produced in different venues throughout the Deerfield Valley, they comprise both small/intimate and large events. All are designed to replenish our capacity to produce. Those events labeled fundraisers include donations in whole or in part in this effort to rebuild by the performers, the hosts, or both. Be assured that MHCA is still here, is a viable organization, and does plan to be back in 2013 with a full season of events. It is your help that will assure that, especially with your membership, and also with your patronage.
This season there will not be a physical box office. To order tickets, please print the order sheet with pricing, fill in the spaces provided with your name, etc. and send a check with your order or, if you prefer, record your credit card information. Orders will be processed as they arrive and you will receive a confirmation phone call to the number you provide. The tickets will be held for your pick-up the night of the event, or if you prefer, can be mailed for a $1 charge. If you have questions, please call 802-464-8411, and leave a message. A person will return your call in the evening or the next morning, or that a time you specify.
The board of MHCA thanks you sincerely for your past support and patronage and asks that you bear with us during this trying season.
P.S. To satisfy a lease promise, the organization is using the acronym of our legal name this season. You know who we are... we're the same 501 (c) (3) that has brought you productions that hopefully made you laugh, applaud, scream with joy, rehearse your youth, or just smile... for the past 15 years.
Please patronize our sponsors.
the day in Vermont,
in the car.
