Hey! Look who was downtown today at City Hall!
Heather and Logan opposing
cutting eliminating Clark Theater from the city budget.
Heather and Logan were not alone. There was a bunch of kids there enthusiastically exercising their right of free speech. They were spirited and loud and very enthusiastic and very polite. I loved it.
Their parents were there and they were getting into it also. It was a great vibe going on. They were there because there was a city council meeting tonight to discuss the Mayor’s proposed budget that involves closing the theater. Found out all about it here.
(Of course some of us more cynical people are wondering why we are just rocking along and then all the sudden we need to cut about 200 jobs to balance the budget.)
And so what do you think happened after the rally? Well I’ll tell you what theater kids do, they perform. Many of the protestors hurried on down to Henthorne Performing Arts Center for a recital.
Some of the kids did various improv skits. They were great and they were funny, of course.
Logan wasn’t in the improv part of the recital he recited a monologue that he had been working on for some time.
All the kids did great, get up there and take a bow guys! We are proud of all of you!
