  1. I would like to suggest getting Lou Christie to perform here. What can I do to make something like this happen?

  2. Angela, The Glema Center Advisory committee works year round to make sure we present a balanced season representing as many art forms as possible, while staying within our budget. I will make an inquiry with his management and then we will add the name to the list of considered artists if it is deemed within budget and technical confines. We consider over 300 suggestions annually for approximately 16 slots, 8 of which are for our coffeehouse and chamber music series.

  3. I’m wondering if there was a recording made of Young Dr Frankenstein. We have a family member in the cast and would like to purchase the recording, if one was made. Thank you.

  4. According to the license agreement for “Young Frankenstein” no video recording was permitted. Sorry about that but we have to adhere to the rules set forth by the licensing agency.

  5. What is the deadline for the application for the Juried Art Exhibit this year?

  6. Again, my question remains as to when is the deadline for returning our application for the Juried Art Show?

  7. For the Fall Lineup this year, could I make a suggestion of getting someone like Keith Urban, Kenny Chesney, Michael Bolton *he’s making a comeback*, Luke Bryan or any of the great country singers to come to Madisonville. I was there when you had Josh Turner *that was amazing* Is it possible?

  8. Leandra, Josh Turner was at a point in his career where he targeted “small venues” which at 1,018 seats, is what we are. If an artist charges us $40,000, and then you add another $10-15,000 in marketing and production costs, you,re looking at $55,000. Even with sponsorship support to cover operational costs of the center we would still have to average $55 for every ticket sold to break even. We did present Bolton about 4 or 5 years ago and lost money with a sell-out. In order to break even with, Urban, Chesney, or Bryan, we would have to charge between $200 and $500 a ticket. But even then it would not be very likely that the agency would accept a competitive offer from a 1,000 seat venue in a small town when they could play for 10,000 more fans at the Ford Center just 50 miles away. The artist would make so much more money in merchandise sales with an audience of 11,000. I’m not saying it’s impossible, it’s just highly, highly unlikely in these difficult economic times.
