enjoy many handson exhibits and activities at the Childrens Museum in New Braunfels Performers invited to sail on Arts Councils showboat On Sunday Jan 18 1998 the captain of a brand new showboat will steer his fancy vessel from its pott of departure at the Civic Center as we all go Cruising Down the Yes you heard it here thats the theme of the 18th annual Dinner With the Arts sponsored by The Greater New Braunfels Arts Council Needless to say there be seaworthy decorations and a classy cuisine aboard ship but the highlight of our cuisine will be performers gathered to entertain us And thats where you come in If youre a singer dancer poet actor or standup comic youre invited to rock the boat with your talent If you happen to find yourself at Circle Arts Theatre this coming Monday along about youll be in the right place at the right time Thats where and when the Arts Councils casting committee will pay the utmost attention to your act because youll be needed thats for sure Strong recommendation now present a song or dance or whatever else that you know as well as the back of your hand And preferably it should be the material you want to perform in the show The writer and director dont want any surprises on the day before Almost anything Since the theme is Cruising Down fthe nostalgia sounds like a winner But our showboat will feature a variety extravaganza so acts that reflect any time frame will be welcome I happen to be partial to Stephen Foster songs but theres more to the creating of this entertainment than Jeanie With the Light Brown Elizabeth Elliott Whatever you do choose something that you know you do well That always makes you feel more confident at an audition And though an accompanist will be provided if you rather perform with a tape or your own accompanist by all means do it your way Because thats when you do your and thats what we want Thats what I think of every time I see the finished product of a Dinner With the Arts Because with the grand total of one organizational meeting and two rehearsals the production comes off looking as if it had been rehearsed for a month So many good people are responsible for that I know but its always a little hold yourbreath exciting to see artists work together so well It takes an iricharge director a host of talented performers a dedicated stage crew and a skilled technical director to glue it all together on the day Well we know who the stage director is going to be and fairly certain of the technical director and stage crew Joy Lindsey fills the first bill and Rob Elliott and the members of The Inner Circle will take care of the technical aspect To make the miracle happen again we only need you Elizabeth Elliott is an arts advocate writing for the HeraldZeitung on arts and Authors bio
