Thursday Trout Fishing in America Friday Bobby Mack Saturday the Late Bloomers with Ponty Bone THE ART OF THE MATTER Dinner with the Arts Behind the scenes there are several small miracles Elizabeth Elliott Hurdles to success If walking presents some difficulty forme youll understand when I say these legs werent made for jumping And there hurdles to jump in preparing the show for Dinner With the Arts this past Sun day The Arts Council wanted so much to be part of the Scsquicenten nial year that it seemed like the only theme to have when we chose 150 and I thought at the time that it sounded like an exciting idea It was exciting all right I soon discovered it was very challenging to write a script and expect performers to fit the restrictions of a journey from 1845 to 1995 But they did it Minus an accompanist at the ONE and ONLY technical rehearsal minus an act that was plugged in on Sunday minus ideal lighting and acoustical support yet the miracle happened Happy patrons of the arts generously patted my back but truth to tell 1 was NOT the one who pulled it off again An excellent technical crew consisting of daughter Rob as head honcho Rosa Linda de la Cerda and Randy Foerster as stage managers James Estes running the lights and Amber Anderson wielding the spotlight and close to 40 performers giving their what makes the miracle Peo ple CHOOSING to take responsibility for themselves and giving The other miracles Speaking of taking responsibility young Patrick Pope and veteran actor Lewis Sarkozi took on the Herculean task of glu ing the acts together by being time

an old bench But 1 forgot that reading small print in the Civic Center stage lighting is almost impossible Maybe its just as well that I didnt remember until the script was completed Those two received the final draft of the script the day before the show and proceeded to read it over and over again to feel secure about what they were saying And they never dropped a stitch during the show The happiest miracle occurred when the lovely young women from Compania De Danza Folklorica SMILED during the per formance and finale That may not seem like much of an accomplishment to you but you werent the one who begged cajoled and nagged them for two days to look as if they enjoyed being onstage Their dancing was wonderful but for some reason they didnt seem to realize how much they had to be proud of Then their instructor Mary Paniagua gave me a word that may have made the dif ference in one more message before the show Because finally their stage presence had It means And the audience caught the fire as it clapped sever al times in beat with the dancers clicking heels The final It was the audience They were actually interested in the script that Id worried over because it was punctuated with facts which I thought might slow down the show And they accepted the challenge of seeing the rolling mist of Time on the we had to cancel the fog machine during dress rehearsal It was choking the singers Yet Sunday thanks to the group effort of imagin ing I could swear I saw a slight mist hug ging the stage floor Okay so Im a fool for small miracles They have a way of adding up
