Progress Report #1Theater

oneStarCon 2 has reserved the Lila B. Cockrell
Theater, a full-fledged, professional quality theatre, in the
convention center complex. It seats 2400 (including wheelchair
seating) in a banked auditorium, with a proscenium stage, backstage
dressing rooms and a lighting booth. If you are part of a group
which would be interested in using this facility to present a
science fiction or fantasy play, let us know. We could have five
for each night of the convention.
But you have to let us know. If we hear from more than five groups,
we'll start a waiting list, because two and a half years is a
long time to rehearse, and things could change for your group.
If we don't hear from anyone, we'll release the theater back to
the convention center and save some rental fees. So write now
to Theater, LoneStarCon 2, P.O. Box 27277, Austin, TX 78755.
