Hello all! Amelia Ampuero here. In case you all don’t know me, I’m the Artistic Director of Duke City Rep.
This last Sunday (4/10/11) at approximately 3:30pm, the final performance of the last show of our Inaugural Season came down. It marked an ending to what has been an incredible season for us.
And just in case the closing of our closing show wasn’t already emotional and nerve wracking enough, we also went into this final performance with an injured back (mine!). Apparently, I’m getting to the age where just getting into and out of a car can be dangerous…
As odd as it may sound, ending the run and the season with this incredibly heightened performance was quite fitting. As anyone who has ever tried to open their own business can attest, this is no easy task. We’ve been jumping over hurdles since October of 2007 and we’ll continue to jump them well into the future. So really and truly, what was one injury amidst everything else that we’ve survived this year?
We at DCRT are going to take a small break before we hit the ground running for next season but we’ll be posting new blogs here and keeping up with our fans on Facebook and Twitter. In addition to our 4 main productions, we’ll also be having a awesome fundraiser on July 9th so mark your calendars!
And I’ve said it before, but it’s something that bares repeating often: Thank you, sincerely, thank you to everyone who played with us this season, those of you who came out to see our shows, supported us, were there for us, created with us, cheered us on and asked us the tough questions. We’re so grateful to everyone who participated in this season. Thank you all!
