Electrical work is being completed to add much needed lighting to the outside of the building... now that the skies are dark earlier and earlier... to highlight the beautiful banners that advertise what I.S. is promoting in the community.
Today the American Girl exhibit goes into the gallery: Meet Allison--An American Girl. It has already drawn the attention of Milwaukee Magazine who wrote an article about the exhibit in their November edition.
And this is tech week for THE ICEMAN COMETH, the debut production of the Cream City Theatre, directed by Katherine Beesom which opens this Friday for a two-weekend run. A cast of 19 characters will perform this staged reading... hopefully to a sold-out crowd.
Connections made with local community organizations and individuals are helping to draw more and more attention to this venue...and to the possibility of collaborations that will help foster the arts in West Allis. I'm looking forward to bringing theatre projects from other states and planning art events with or at local restaurants/cafes. (Joe already wants a painting party at Urban Joe's! "The sooner, the better!" he said.)
And reservation requests continue to filter in from local theatre groups that would like to use the space for their own specific projects. It can be a juggling act trying to fit it all in, but it's certainly worth the effort. I'm not a fan of the cold weather, but winter looks promising right about now. -Erico
