UPDATE: Burien Little Theatre Finds An Electric Piano – Thanks To YOU!
UPDATE 1/31/12: The good folks at Burien Little Theatre report to us that have successfully obtained the use of an 88-key electric piano thanks to YOU, our faithful and generous B-Town Blog Readers!
Here’s a note from Artistic Director Eric Dickman:
I don’t know if you have room for this, but I would be nice to thank Diana Holman in public.
Thanks for 88 keys! Once again the readers of the B-Town Blog came through for Burien Little Theatre. As you may have read BLT needed an 88 key electric piano for its upcoming production the “The Who’s Tommy,” that runs February 17 though March 25.
We borrowed an electric piano from Diana Holman, a fine B-Town Blog reader and supporter of the arts.
Thank you, thank you, thank you.
– Eric Dickman
Our friends at Burien Little Theatre are “in a jam” of a different musical variety – they need an 88-key electric piano to use from Feb. 12 – March 25 in their upcoming production of “The Who’s Tommy.”
Our generous Readers have come through before, when BLT needed to borrow a baby grand for “Christmas with the Crawfords” (read about that here) and we know someone out there can help, so if you’ve got one just sitting around and collecting dust, or know of one, please contact them ASAP: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Also, please spread the word by sharing this post on your Facebook Page or Twitter feed!
“The Who’s Tommy” will begin Friday, Feb. 18 and will run through March 25 at BLT, located at 14501 4th Ave SW – buy tickets online here.
Here’s more from an email we received from BLT Artistic Director Eric Dickman:
BLT is in a jam. We need an 88 weighted key electric piano with a moderate effects library for “The Who’s Tommy.” We need it from February 12 through March 25, 2012. See http://burienlittletheatre.org/blog/2012/01/88-keys-please/.
Or if anyone could donate enough to buy one we would be forever in their debt.
We usually borrow an 88 key electric piano from another theater, but they have a show up during our production of “Tommy” that needs their piano. We have been asking around to no avail.
Your readers have come through so many times for so many, including BLT when one of your readers let borrow a baby grand for “Christmas with the Crawfords.” Hopefully they will come through for us again.
