After this year's Stage East performances, I received some complaints from members of our audience that they found it hard to see the stage from half way back in the hall.
It is true that our stage in the Beiseker Community Centre is much lower than stages in halls in other communities around us. After Saturdays show, I sat down at some of the tables toward the back of the hall and it was obvious to me that the vision of the stage was severely limited.
I don't know why those planning and building our new hall thirty years ago decided on such a low stage.
At this point in time, I don't know if anything can be done to raise that stage - but I plan to find out. I'll let you know what I find.
