On the scene – Calling all reviewers

If you like to write and love seeing plays, let’s talk. We are mostly interested in getting reviews for local plays that will still be running when your review comes out – as in you see a play on Saturday night that is playing for one or two more weekends. You write your reaction to it (about 250 words) Sunday and e-mail it to me by 9 a.m. Monday. Readers will see it Thursday, just in time to buy tickets.

This, of course, is predicated on the fact that you liked the play or at least found a couple of things about it that are positive. If you hated the thing, pass on the review.

Starz 2005, friends say, was as energetic and fun and as always. A lot of work went into that. And Gather the Women had a capacity crowd at its celebration of International Women’s Day. Bottom line: If things are going to shift toward cooperation and harmony as opposed to violence, it’s we who have to do it.

A reminder about press releases and timing. Please get them to us, preferably by e-mail, two weeks before the event. Example: Your event is happening this weekend. To get it in this week’s Prospector, we should have received it by Monday of last week. Make sense? Also, send it to janetl@theunion.com if you’d like to see it listed in the calendar at the back of The Prospector.

Another call for artists to profile in the paper on Fridays. Whether you are a performing/visual/audio artist, writer, movie maker, costume designer, or a combination of a number of things, you can let the community know more about you. Just ask me for an artist profile form (or go online at http://www.theunion.com/forms), send along a photo (or have one taken at The Union’s office), and we’ll see you in print.
