It’s a busy couple of weeks coming up for PTDT, Apprentice Company, and the Third Stage. Saturday, April 16th, we’re dancing at the Sacramento State Dance Department’s Dance Sampler along with many other notable dance companies. Then it’s the two weekends of performing at our home theater with Secondary Shelf Life, which opens Sunday, April 24, 2016, at 3:00pm continues Friday, April 29, at 8:00pm and Saturday, April 30, at 8:00pm. Finally we wrap up this whirlwind month with the Big Day of Giving, May 3rd.
We need you to help us amplify our message. It’s great that you receive our posts and emails and even better if you act on them, but we really need your help to get us in contact with more people. How can you help?
Participate! Come to the shows and make a donation on May 3rd! Encourage others to participate. Bring a friend, tell a neighbor. When the person at the checkout counter asks what you have planned this week, tell them about the PTDT concerts or that you plan to donate on the Big Day of Giving.
Share, Retweet, Forward! Liking/favoriting messages on our social media platforms is lovely. We like you, too. But that message doesn’t travel very far if you just click the heart button. We want you to SHARE on Facebook & RETWEET on Twitter! Forward that email message to your friends and family. On Instagram, tag people who need to know about us. Let them know how you’re participating.
[Some of the hairy details… Facebook and Twitter are constantly changing their tactics for which messages they allow you to see (they call these formulas algorithms). What this means to us is that even though someone wants to see what we post, they may not ever know that we’ve posted. The more you share and retweet (not just like), the more likely Facebook and now Twitter is to show it to more people. Both Facebook and Twitter would like us to pay for boosting the reach of our posts. Your share/retweet actually saves us money that we don’t have to spend paying ransom to Facebook to show our posts. The less money we spend on advertising, the more we can put towards our community programs.]
Yet another thing to your small talk routine is how you volunteer. PTDT is always looking for ushers (see the show for free!) and folks to hang posters at local businesses. Contact us if you can help or your business would like a show poster.
