February Majestic Monthly Update!
Our Majestic Ambassadors Need You!
Our Majestic Ambassadors have been working hard on securing the future of the Majestic Theatre as a permanent part of the Corvallis Parks and Recreation department. They have been setting up testimony and organizing support for important meetings for the last three months and there are two things you can do to help!
First, you can add your signature to a letter that will be shortly be sent to our City Council. John Carone, long time actor, director, and previous MTM and CCT board member has written a letter in support of Parks and Recreation management of the Majestic. By reading his letter below and filling out the form below it, you can add your name to those that support John’s letter. The Ambassadors would like to be able to send the letter to Council before the February 8th meeting, so please fill out the form by February 5th. It only takes a few minutes, and a letter with many signatures appended to it carries even greater weight than individual testimony.
Click this link to read John’s letter and add your name in support by February 5th, 2018.
Secondly, you can attend an important meeting coming up. On Thursday February 8th, 2018 the City Council Work Session will discuss the upcoming renewal of the local option levy. This is a potential funding source for Majestic operations, and having Majestic folk at this meeting is a critical show of support for the future of the Majestic. This meeting will be in the Madison Avenue Building Meeting Room at 500 SW Madison Ave. Corvallis, OR 97330 at 4:00pm.
So, to recap, to support the future of the Majestic Theatre, please consider:
1) Adding your name to John Carone’s letter with the link above. 2) Coming to the City Council Worksession on Thursday February 8th, 2018 at 4:00pm.

The action is set in Truvy’s beauty salon in Chinquapin, Louisiana, where all the ladies who are “anybody” come to have their hair done. Helped by her eager new assistant, Annelle, the outspoken, wise-cracking Truvy dispenses shampoos and free advice to the town’s rich curmudgeon, Ouiser; an eccentric millionaire, Miss Clairee, who has a raging sweet tooth; and the local social leader, M’Lynn, whose daughter, Shelby, is about to marry a “good ole boy.” Filled with hilarious repartee and not a few acerbic but humorously revealing verbal collisions, the play moves toward tragedy by the second act. Come out to laugh and cry!
