We had a very memorable summer at Moonlight.
Watching families fill the hillside to capacity for The Wizard of Oz was a joy to behold. Lavish picnicking and seeing little girls dressed in ruby red slippers is a reminder that Moonlight is not just about the incredible productions, it's also about sharing family time under the stars! In addition, it was a summer of revenue and attendance-breaking records. Congratulations to Steve Glaudini on a successful first season as Artistic Director.
The Foundation board, led by President Jane Mitchell, worked hard to expose more people to the magic of the Moonlight. Our preview night ticket sales doubled from last year, and corporate and individual sponsors also increased. Our donors understand the value of having an arts destination of Moonlight's caliber in their community and are truly dedicated to maintaining the legacy of the Moonlight.
This summer, the Foundation's NEXT STAGE OUTREACH PROGRAM provided free access to every VUSD Educator, free access to 500 military families and free access to 3,000 elementary school students to see The Wizard of Oz. Thank you to our Foundation family for making this possible.
I hope you've enjoyed this summer as much as I have. Thank you for getting involved and staying involved. With your on-going support we can keep the "light" on our moon!
