Dear Editor:

I’m sure I can speak for the entire Heritage Hall Board when I say “thank you” to our community and our area for supporting us through a truly busy first five months of 2012. During this short time period, Heritage Hall has provided a venue for two middle school concerts, the high school’s spring musical, the Young Artists’ musical, the JC Foundation’s Talent Show, a DARE graduation for MCES, and the Community Theatre’s spring production.
Our own events have included two free Barter shows for the middle school and an affordable Barter children’s show for local families, along with a major Barter production for adults. We also offered a free Army Volunteer concert, a Kody Norris show, the ETSU Jazz Ensemble, and the amazing Tribute to Doc Watson.
None of these events could’ve been possible without the hundreds of volunteer hours our house managers, ushers, sound and lighting techs, ticketing folks, and production managers clock each year. And of course without our event sponsors and Curtain Raisers we could not have ended each fiscal year successfully.
But our most important supporters, who we are constantly marketing, the ones who create the presence needed for any successful production, are our patrons. We couldn’t have had the successful run this year and all the other years without your support. As busy people, we know how much effort is involved in your support of Heritage Hall, and we deeply appreciate your great contribution to our success.
Please continue to keep us in mind as you budget your time by checking our schedule on heritagehalltheatre.org, as you budget your finances by responding to our 2012/13 Curtain Raisers Campaign, or by volunteering to sponsor an event, or by becoming a season pass holder. For more information regarding anything Heritage Hall, call the Box Office, 423-727-7444.
Thank you, Johnson County, for keeping the performing arts alive in Johnson County.

Sincerely,
Wanda Payne, Heritage Hall Marketing
