The Union County Players production of Dangerous Liasons has changed venues from Wingate University to Spirit Square due to complaints about the plays subject matter.
MTA says THANKS to the Vance Theatrical Organization and Guest speaker George Parides, President of North Carolina Arts and Entertainment Center/Wilmington for making our first meeting this year a big success. If you missed Ruthless! then you don't rea lly know what depths "going for the part" really entails.
Chris Zink, formerly of Pembroke State is the new TD at Catawba. Simon Donoghue has announced his departure from Theatre Charlotte. He's returning to Belmont Abbey. Denise Mallory-Hubbard,also of Theatre Charlotte, is moving to Wilmington to continue her education.
The MTA script library is still in need of a home. If you or your organization can give these homeless waifs a home, give Ginger Heath a call. Ginger reports a big "thank you" to Doug Robinson for his recent donation to the library. If you've got any scripts just lying about, give Ginger a call or just bring them to the next meeting.
The MTA home page is finally online with Charlotte's Web: (http://www.charweb.org/arts/mta/mtapg.htm). Word has been sent forth about our web site throughout the World Wide Web.
