Lots of News on the DCA Storefront
Greetings Kickstarter Donors!
You may or may not have heard a lot of news about the DCA Storefront flying around in the news the past few days. If you haven't, I wanted to give you the scoop. Sideshow's 2nd show in our Summer of Theater is opening at the DCA Storefront Theater, and even with this particular news, our plans are still to move full speed ahead!
So here's the story. It looks like the DCA Storefront is having some major staff and organizational changes happening at the beginning of the summer right just a month or so before we move into the space. The air is filled with uncertainty. It's causing some anxiety. But the details are still unclear, and the good thing is while the City of Chicago is making all these changes, they have said time and again they are committed to honoring the contact they made with the producing companies, Sideshow included, throughout their fall season. You can read an informative and concise article on the situation from Time Out Chicago HERE.
The many theater companies affected by these upcoming events have begun collaborating together to see how we can send a message to our city that we LOVE the DCA Storefront, its very talented and capable current staff, and our hopes to be able to produce in the space under the full terms of our contract. If you too are inspired and concerned, we ask you to please sign our petition HERE and encourage you to share it with friends.
Your contributions to our Kickstarter campaign are more important than ever to make sure our Sideshow Summer of Theater goes off without a hitch! If the DCA administrative changes occur, the road ahead could be bumpy. Sideshow will use all our talents and resources to fill any void that might exist with the DCA changes, and your contribution will go directly towards making sure our operations and ability to produce happens as smoothly and seamlessly as possible. We are still and will continued to be very honored and delighted to be a part of the DCA Storefront's fall programming. Thank you for your support, and we'll keep you informed as details unfold.
