Membership Gala – April 25th, 2015 at 5pm
After months of meetings, forums and planning we’re ready to invite all our current members, performers, volunteers and the public to come and hear about the plans and programs that we will be launching in 2015-2016!
Karen Emery, Director of Parks and Recreation, will open the evening with a brief history of how the Majestic came to be a part of Parks and Recreation and their plans for supporting and expanding our activities.
Then Theatre Supervisor Jimbo Ivy will give a presentation of all the aspects of the theatre operations including addressing our theatre, live music, dance, and other performance plans, membership and volunteer reorganization, and our new education programs and initiatives.
Afterwards, we hope that everyone can network and mingle in the lobby and theatre to solidify our community by having all the various pieces in one place. We will have refreshments available to aid this process.
If you want to be involved with anything at the Majestic, this night is for you.
We hope that you will come and share in this exciting night of announcements and community as we prepare to begin this new era at The Majestic Theatre!
Propose a Show for our Fall 2015 Theatre Season!
We are now accepting applications from directors and creative teams for theatrical performances in our Fall 2015 Season. The process has changed from previous years following input from you during our Public Forum on Theatre at the Majestic. The season has been divided into an ambitious number of season slots that the community will then propose shows to fill. The process is as follows:
1) Fill out our MCT Fall 2015 Season Theatre Application.
2) Theatre Supervisor Jimbo Ivy will review your application and post it on our website once it has been deemed complete and error-free. The public will then have their first opportunity to comment on your proposal via email.
3) On the evenings of May 26th and 27th beginning at 5pm, Ivy will present each proposal to the public, stating his thoughts about the viability of that proposal. The community will then be given time to comment upon the proposal, either in support or dissent. Directors will be asked to leave the room during their proposal’s comment section, to encourage free expression.
4) After considering both the comment online and at the forums, Ivy will decide which of the proposed shows should be placed in which slot in the Fall 2015 Season. He will announce our 2015 Fall Theatre lineup on May 29th, 2015. At this point, an audition schedule for the season will be decided.
If you have any questions about the process, or would like to meet with Jimbo to get help with your proposal, email him at email@example.com. Below we have listed the proposed slots for the Fall 2015 Theatre Season.
