1. Build a Performing Arts Center at Stetson University

Stetson University has a nationally recognized music program that sends its students to some of the most prestigious graduate music programs in the country.

We have distinguished international faculty, and world-class orchestras, symphonic bands, and choirs. But, we have no real performance space. The renovated Chapel that we currently use is a beautiful space, but it is far too small for most of our ensembles. The orchestra is forced to use stage extensions, which cut audience capacity by more than 100 seats, and operas are often performed off-site at the local high school.

Furthermore, since the closing of Stover Theater, the theater department has been forced to move off-site as well, to the Museum of Florida Art. These off-site options are costing the University money, both in rental costs, and in loss of prospective students that might choose to attend music or theater programs with a large performance space. Also, the University has no large auditorium to use for school-wide presentations and orientation activities.

A performing arts center would give the entire University a place to offer lectures and presentations that is large enough to accommodate most of the student body, and that is equipped with the technology that our guest lecturers are accustomed to at other universities. All of Stetson's performers - be they musicians or thespians, public speakers or presenters, students or faculty - deserve a space to call their own, that is worthy of their talent and that can fully support their artistic and academic endeavors.

Most importantly, a performing arts center would be a much needed addition to the Stetson and Deland communities as a whole. Having a space large enough for distinguished lecture series and large university gatherings, such as convocation or graduation, would so greatly amplify our sense of community. A performing arts center would give all of our students, faculty, staff, and guests a place to commune in celebration of our wonderful university.

3. Bring Pokemon Films Back to UK Cinemas!

Pokémon has recently become the second most successful and lucrative video game-based media franchise in the world, a massive part of the franchise being the anime, the movies.

Unfortunately for no known reason Pokemon hasn't appeared in UK cinemas for possibly 10 years now, this is disappointing when there is still such a strong fan base here in the UK and hopefully with the help of the rest of you we can get pokemon back to are big screens!

5. We Support a Theatre for Persons with Disabilities

In the Richmond, VA area, there are many and varied theater troupes which thrive and give back to their community. However, persons with disabilities have few facilities in which they might express themselves artistically, those with physical disabilities especially.

It is our intent to create just such a troupe in the Richmond, VA area. Working in cooperation with local advocacy groups, we intend to acquire a facility, modify it to accommodate all persons, allowing people both with and without disabilities to produce entertaining and brilliant productions.

7. No Sales Tax on Concert and Theatre Tickets

On September 22nd the associated press published an article outlining the proposed final budget plan for the state of Pennsylvania. This proposed budget among other things calls for the addition of a 6% sales tax to concert and theater tickets.

From The PA Budget Website

"$100 million from lifting the sales tax exemption on admissions costs for theater, dance, concerts and performing arts, as well as museums, historical sites, zoos and parks."

There is a specific singling out of the performance arts in this proposal. Sporting events and other forms of entertainment are not slated to receive any additional taxation in the budget proposal.

This proposal has been confirmed with the Governor's office of public liaison. As of Sept 23rd 2009 the proposal is slated to be on the Governor's desk in to weeks time in bill form for signing.

In an already crippled live performance industry and an era of limited household incomes it is important to act quickly to keep entertainment outlets affordable.

8. Bring Back 13 The Musical !

13 The Musical ! is a inspiring musical about what it meant to turn 13 and the struggles that we all go and went through. It is a musical that everyone no matter how old you are can relate to.

It is family friendly, and a great show. It only lasted two years & was wrongfully shut down, I don't know why it closed, but the reviews it received clearly show that this musical is one of a kind.

To learn more about this show, you can search on iTunes, or google search the musical.

10. Bring back Oakland's Parkway Speakeasy Theater!

Since its start back in 1997, the Parkway Speakeasy Theater has become an anchor for both residents and small business in the Lake Merritt and Eastlake communities, as well as a source of pride for Oakland and the greater Bay Area.

Residents frequently say “I live near the Parkway.”

Businesses in the area often use the theater as a reference point as well. In fact, some businesses may not have initially given this district a chance without the Parkway as the mainstay.

It is a rare and special thing when a small business is central to the hearts and minds of both residents and businesses alike.

For the last decade, the Parkway Speakeasy Theater has been a deserving focal point for the good things happening in this part of Oakland.

With the departure of this vital business, the community has lost one of its biggest advocates. It is sad to imagine what long term impact this will have on the desirability of the residential neighborhoods (property values) and the retention/attraction of small business (economic viability) in the surrounding area.

This is why action is needed, and required, on behalf of the Lake Merritt and Eastlake communities, and Oakland/Alameda at large. If you have not already signed the petition in person outside of the Parkway Theater, please help support this cause. Help bring back the Parkway Theatre!

14. Dream Theater Australia 2008, Venue change for Perth

Dream Theater are performing an Australian tour early next year (2008), with the following dates:

January
25th Perth Showgrounds
27th Adelaide Showgrounds
29th Melbourne Festival Hall
30th Sydney The Horden
February
1st Brisbane Riverstage

They start the tour in Perth, on the 25th at Claremont Showgrounds. It is feared that the show is intended to be held at the Showground's Robinson Pavilion.

It is a general consensus of the metal community, among many other fans of the band, as well as fans of other genres who have seen other acts/bands there, that the venue "Robinson Pavilion" is unsuitable for Dream Theater's performance, mostly on the basis of the sound quality of the venue, compared to the nature of the bands on-stage act.

It is believed that such a venue would taint the quality of the performance to the ears of those who would attend, hence it is proposed that the Perth date for the Dream Theater tour, be moved to another venue. Possible suggestions include: Challenge Stadium, Burswood Dome, Metro City.

If you agree that that Dream Theater should be at a different, more suitable venue, please place your signature on the petition.
