Director Portia Ezell said 348 tickets were sold that night, and that 220 were sold the night before, resoundingly beating the crowds that came opening weekend. She said that a total of 975 tickets for all five performances, which played over the course of the last two weekends.
Ezell said she had talked to people who came to see the show from Louisville, Lexington, Hopkinsville and Shelbyville. One girl who had seen the show at the Lexington Children’s Theatre came with her grandmother because she was curious to see how it would be done here. She told Ezell she liked her version even better.
Ezell said she would be meeting soon with the others in her committee who had applied for a grant from the Kentucky Arts Council to produce the show. They will have to turn in their paperwork showing how they spent the money in order to continue the next two years of the three-year grant.
