Lowe Mill ARTS & Entertainment Announces Expansion
[Lowe Mill and Flying Monkey provide an incredible space for the arts, performance and otherwise, in Huntsville. Proud to help spread the word on this expansion - Chuck.]
America’s biggest privately owned visual arts center is about to get even bigger. On Saturday, December 20, Lowe Mill ARTS & Entertainment will open its newly redeveloped north wing to the public. The north wing will house 31 new studios, a new gallery, and The Mill’s first dedicated art classroom. The Grand Opening will feature a ribbon cutting by local officials and a buildingwide open house with demonstrations and performances for all ages. Lowe Mill ARTS & Entertainment is widely recognized as an incubator for creativity and small businesses and the Mill’s latest tenants were specially chosen to continue that legacy. Dozens of professional artists and creative businesses will open their new studios just in time for holiday shopping, including a rapid prototyping makers space, a gourmet popsicle shop, a 72 seat classroom, and a new home for the Huntsville Art League.

Theatre Groups - Send Me A Liaison Email
Still need to hear from a few more groups (you know who you are). If you represent a local theatre group, please send me the email address of a person I can contact. I plan to send out periodic reminders so y'all can be sure to get your productions and auditions in time to be listed. And also to notify you in those cases when the weekly email might be going out early. Email your contact info to firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks!
The Theatre Brokerage
If you're a director or producer, occasionally you might not be able to cast your show from the audition. Or maybe you need to scrounge up a sound or lighting person, or a set designer. In these cases, might I suggest the Theatre Brokerage. Send me the details, I'll list the needed talent here and on the website. There are LOTS of actors (and techies) who read this newsletter. Hopefully, y'all can hook up via this mechanism. Just send me an email, and include the following:
Rehearsal Details (starting date, some idea of schedule; eg, MonTueThu or whatever)
Actor details (gender, age, etc.)
Email to email@example.com.
