Again, we can't stress enough, the importance of your attendance at these meetings, as we need the
membership to come together for important topics and discussions.

Also, membership renewals are due.  
We have 82 current members after our semiannual meeting.
If you still need to pay dues, you can send them to RFCT, PO Box 1871, Riverhead, NY 11901.
The cost is $10 for the year, or $20 for a family, and checks may be made to RFCT.
Membership runs from August 31 till the following year.

Semi-Annual Meetings will be:

Sunday, February 24, 2019 and Sunday, August 25, 2019.
Time (afternoon) and place will be announced, but please put the dates on your calendars now!

We try to have two membership meetings each year. 
We need to work on a producer's manual. I am very interested in having experienced RFCT producers join the committee. If you have produced for us in the past, please reply to this as I'd like to schedule a committee meeting as soon as possible. A producer's manual will help anyone on the production team of a show by laying out all the tasks that need doing. Organization is key to the success of any production, so we'd like to get this sorted out so that new folks will feel comfortable joining a team.

The other main topic we discussed was show proposals. We would like to have a comprehensive list of shows you would like to see produced at our February semiannual meeting. You may send all ideas to this email address (rfct1871@gmail.com), and I'll keep track of them all for discussion at the meeting. You may also bring them to that meeting.

One thing to keep in mind: if you have a production team (complete or nearly complete) along with your proposed show, that will weigh more heavily than just saying, oh, let's do "Rent"! The board will shorten the list to a number of finalists, and we'll notify you if your show is in the running. After you're notified, you will need to complete a show proposal by April 1 in order for that show to be considered for production in the upcoming year. We will accept proposals for the fall musical, straight plays, musical revues, play readings, variety shows, etc--but everything other than the fall musical needs to be performable at a small venue like Jamesport Meeting House.

We only have the high school for the youth musical and the November musical, so anything else we do has to be somewhat simple and flexible. That said, we'd love to see what you might come up with for a small venue show, because the more we do, the more visible we are, the more members we can bring in and the more good we can do for our students. If you're not certain about what needs to be included in a show proposal, all the members of the board have directed and/or produced a show, and we can help you.

I hope your holiday season is full of peace, love and joy. Welcome to all the new members who joined us for "Guys & Dolls," and we hope you'll stay involved in new projects. We also hope that our past members will come back and help out on new projects, and we hope to see you in February!
