Assigned at Box Office
How was your experience?
This was beautifully done, especially for a local production. It was fun to watch the interplay between professional dancers, student dancers, and young children! Unfortunately, ticket collection was poorly organized, so there was chaos in the lobby. It didn't help that this audience isn't accustomed to attending large public events (people who think nothing of stopping to chat in the same single entryway that 1,200 others have to use -- and parents who can't control their children). Also, there was an unpleasant element of parents fawning over their children (paid ads in the program for individual kids, etc.)
