November Summary/December Events


November has been another busy, unexpectedly cold month here at TFAC.

We opened a Member Show with 5 new members showing alongside 8 old members.

Small Wonders and the Members’ Show have seen gradually increasing foot traffic since the Nov. 15 opening.

A new, weather-resistant sign has replaced the old, rotten sign on Jackson Street thanks to Garth Segroves, Sign-A-Rama, and grants from The City of Tullahoma and The Tennessee Arts Commission.

Members Robert Allen and Colleen Saunders went to the Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee’s Grant Awards Celebration.  Robert accepted a 2500$ award for partnership activities between South Jackson Civic Center, The Tullahoma Arts Council and TFAC.

Katie Pierce and Betty Bertrand finalized the Kitchen remodel plans with our contractor from Lowes and the city codes inspector.

We still have 2000$ remaining for exterior remodel from the Bonnaroo Grant thanks to their careful use of funds.

We have a 2000$ estimate for the upstairs flooring which we hope to be able to complete within the year.

The Board has been hard at work on a very aggressive 5 year Strategic Plan designed to put TFAC on more solid financial footing and move it towards becoming a “Best in Class Facility,”  When the plan is finished, it will be presented to the Membership for comment and approval.

Expect news of a Capital Campaign soon.

Changes in Membership are being discussed in order to facilitate more realistic budgeting and a more structured cash flow.

The Last Five Years is a moving and beautiful, but rarely-produced, 2-person song cycle written by Jason Robert Brown starring Nashville Theatre professionals, Michael Adcock and Jenna Pryor.

In a conceptual-art style of storytelling, this work explores a five-year relationship between Jamie Wellerstein, a rising novelist, and Cathy Hiatt, a struggling actress.

Cathy’s story is told in reverse chronological order (beginning the show at the end of the marriage), and Jamie’s is told in chronological order (starting just after the couple have first met).

The characters interact only during a wedding song as their timelines intersect.

…we’ll also include a box of tissues.
