This is a very hard letter to write, but all good things must end and it's time for WORLD CALVALCADE to pull the final curtain after 68 years.
You've traveled with us around the world many times, always returning safely after an entertaining, enlightening 2 hour journey. We thank you for your loyal patronage. You've become good friends. We've looked forward to seeing you several times a year. Hearing about your travels, about your summer plans. We've watched with amazement as your children have grown and then gone on to bring their children to the shows…we've had many three generation groups join us.We know that you have been aware of the declining attendance. We just haven't added new people. That's in part due to our inability to advertise. As we have held the costs down, we have just paid the bills. The theaters, the speakers, have all helped; we've done it as a labor of love for many, many years.
So many of you have made tax deductible donations and for that we THANK YOU, but the ticket prices were NOT paying the bills.
The curtain fell for the last time in April 2014 with GHOSTTOWNS of the WEST (fitting?)
With Warm regards,
Natalie and Bill Handy
