Help! Ushers needed for next Saturday!

No weighty, philosophical blog post today. No news flashes! No story-telling! Nothing but a plain old plea for help with WMRA's Carl Kasell Caper!

Thinking over logistics for Carl Kasell's appearance at Staunton's Blackfriars Playhouse next Saturday, it occurred to me that we could use four volunteers to stand at the four theater entrances and take the "tickets" the rest of the audience picks up at the will-call window. So, this is a plea for four volunteers to do just that.

What you get -- as well as my undying gratitude -- would be  two seats to the Carl Kasell event.

What you would have to do is  show up at the Blackfriars at 9:45 a.m., Saturday, January 23rd, to meet with me in the lobby and go over a few simple instructions. When the theater opens at 10:00 a.m., you (while your guest saved your seat)  would stand at one of the theater entrances and take the passes that people who have reserved seats at the event  have picked up at the box office.

As soon as Carl takes the stage, you would sit down and enjoy the event.

At the end of the Q & A session, Tom DuVal (or maybe Carl) will announce that any WMRA donations will be welcome and that volunteers will be holding the hats at the exits if anyone wants to kick in a few bucks. At that point, you get up and stand at your entrance again, holding whatever I've found to hold contributions (an actual hat? a bucket? a basket?) until everyone's out of the theater.

Then you take the money and run. . .

. . . over to me, of course. Where you'll get a big hug for helping out (if, that is, you like being hugged!)

If you're interested, please e-mail me post-haste or call 540-568-3818 and leave a message. We shall have fun, I promise!
