We tried three times to make it to the opera. The College of Charleston puts on such wonderful productions that the community’s seasons ticket holders account for over half of the tickets available. This opera had such wonderful word of mouth comments that the other half were snapped up by the students. The boys had the experience of queuing. The College only had ten no-show tickets and we were eight to 12 in the line. Sigh.
But, one the great thing about living in a college town is that there is always something to do. Tonight we are heading out to a screening of Citizen Architect:Samuel Mockbee. Our goal for the boys is that the become responsible, thoughtful members of community. We believe that they have God breathed gifts and talents and that our job as their parents is to call these forth. These talents are given to meet the fundamental needs of community. Samuel Mocbee set his life’s goals to use his talents to aid a community.
We are arriving at 7:15 and parking for free in MUSC’s Rutledge Tower (Corner of Rutledge & Calhoun). The screening is at Cannon Park. Bring blankets and an hot coco. The Halsey Gallery is providing popcorn. Q&A with the Producer and former Rural Studio professor, Jay Sanders, and Director, Sam Wainwright Douglas will follow the screening.
See you tonight.
