I am sorry to let you all know that we did not meet our ticket sales goals for a Director’s Event for The Velveteen Rabbit.
Our published goal to make the party was 1050. We worked to keep that number on the low side, knowing that spring is a busy time with families involved in many activities, and with the challenge of luring people inside when the weather is so fine.
School Day tickets were 485 and public shows were 461 – the total was 919.
Honk! was unable to meet their goal either. One of their families decided to host a party for the kids, and that is an option for Velveteen if anyone would like to do so.
I understand it is disappointing. We are working to find ways to encourage ticket sales, because without good sales, it is hard to pay the bills.
Thank you for being a part of The Velveteen Rabbit. It was a pleasure to get to work with all of you and get to know you each a little better, and it was a joy to watch your kids be challenged and grow, not only as actors, but as individuals.
Cole and I hope to do it again with you in the future!
