Wednesday was a good, restful, yet still productive day.
I accomplished a good deal of tasks around the house, mostly finishing up laundry and putting it away.
By 3 PM, I was on No. 17 and heading to downtown Dayton for an event at The Schuster Performing Arts Center where several House Managers were to be on duty to escort a backstage tour of the facility. The Ohio County Treasurer’s Association is a grouping of all the county treasurers in the state and they were in town for a conference. Their Wednesday was topped off with a tour of The Schuster and a social hour and dinner to exhibit Dayton’s history and culture.
I was stationed at the loading dock which might not seem exciting, but that’s where all the magic begins when a musical tour is coming to Dayton. FROZEN will be arriving with their twenty-four-plus semis to unload and set up production, which will take at least five days. It is unbelievable what it takes to get a touring production on its feet. It’s exciting, actually!
One visiting gentleman was on the board of directors for the Omaha Community Playhouse, the oldest running playhouse in the nation. I spent a good deal of time with him as he asked questions regarding the super health of Dayton and the performing arts, especially where our theatre is concerned. For our city’s size, along with all the suburbs, our number of strong performing arts organizations is impressive.
Now, it is 40 degrees this Thursday morning and we are expecting a high of 26 degrees. The sun will climb above the trees, shortly, and a beautiful spring morning shall fully commence.
It’s moving in at 7 AM and time to move on with this day.
Make it a great day!
