“The Prompter” Changes Format
Posted on January 8, 2015 in General News
For many years Shuswap Theatre has been putting out a multipage newsletter, The Prompter, five times a year. In recent years the great majority of these were sent out as an email notice with a link to The Prompter on our website. Now only a small handful of members, including some nonresidents, have been receiving a hard copy by mail.
We have learned that an increasing number of people don’t get around to reading such a long document, even though others have appreciated it immensely. The trend everywhere is toward shorter and more frequent e-newsletters that can be read quickly on screen. This has the added advantage of providing information that is more current.
As a result Shuswap Theatre will be publishing shorter editions of The Prompter, probably every two or three weeks. We will not flood your inbox with frequent emails (we hate spam as much as you do). At the bottom of each newsletter there will be an unsubscribe link for anyone who does not wish to receive it anymore. Issues will continue to be archived here on our website.
Unfortunately, it would not be feasible to provide mailed copies of every Prompter. So for those few who do not have access to email (public library? friend? neighbour? family member?) we will be providing paper copies for pickup at our ticket agent, Intwined Fibre Arts, on Hudson Avenue. Many thanks to Althea Mongerson for agreeing to do this.
We want to express huge appreciation to Susan MacMillan for the tremendous job she has done producing a first class newsletter for the past 8 ½ years. We are pleased that she will be continuing on with the new format.
Your comments on the new Prompter are welcome. Please send them to Susan along with any news to be included in future issues.
