P.S.S.T. stands for Preshow Senior Second Thursdays.
The inaugural PSST event precedes the Black Box show, White Buffalo, on March 1 — (which is now the FIRST Thursday, since this show’s run has been pushed ahead one week due to predicted flooding, which, luckily spared the theatre!)
Riverwalk patrons aged 55 and up will enjoy a new opportunity to meet new old friends at this fun reception/party/backstage peek before the second Thursday performance of every Riverwalk adult show. This free reception begins at 6 pm (the show, optional, starts at 7; Thursday bargain show senior tickets are only $8 - $20 for musicals.)
Patrons will mix and mingle (with refreshments) on the opposite stage from where the night’s show will perform (Black Box/Main Stage.) They will get a backstage look at the set-in-progress and get some news about that upcoming show (with perhaps some volunteer opportunities offered; set painting, anyone?)
The current-show director will also pop in to tell a little about the show folks are about to see. Membership and volunteer sign up will be available — plus a members-only drawing for a $20 gift certificate to Riverwalk.
This group offers fellowship and fun, and we hope it will help new Riverwalk members and volunteers get more personally connected to Riverwalk opportunities.
PSST dates for the rest of the season will be at 6 pm on the second Thursday of each show:
March 1 White Buffalo
March 22 Lily the Felon’s Daughter
April 26 Bud, Not Buddy
May 17 Scotland Road
June 14 Spamalot (musical)
I will be one of the hosts of this event this Thursday - hope a lot of you will check it out! See you there! - Jane Zussman
