The Velveteen Rabbit

No Director’s Event

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!

Velveteen Lost and Found

These items were found at Crosspointe Church.

They will be taken to the Journey offices tomorrow, Tuesday, June 6.  Please claim them by Friday, June 9.


All of us at Journey Theater would like to express a heartfelt THANK YOU to everyone who contributes to the program in so many ways.  Sometimes your acts of generosity may happen in a way that we may not hear about directly (a donated auction item, extra money put toward committee work, extra time to make your project work just right, etc.).  But we want you to know… we see you, we are grateful, and the impact you are having on so many is immeasurable.  Thank you for the difference you are making in this community.

What is forking?

For those new to Journey, forking is one of our fun traditions!

Don’t be surprised if you wake up one morning to find your yard covered in plastic forks (and sometimes spoons and knives as well!).  You may even find paper plates with notes written on them (sharpies work best in cast of rain).

You may be asked by your student to drive a bunch of cast/crew around to fork others.  It’s so much fun!  Great memories!

Let everyone in your house know!
