Yes, "What You Want" is a song title from Legally Blonde: the Musical. But it's also something StageWest and Repertory Theatre of Iowa want to know. Help them out by taking their survey, answering their questions, and letting your voice be heard about the future of theatre in Central Iowa.
First, an update: the recent fundraising drive for StageWest has been successful, and has provided them with needed capital to continue their season. Patrons Jack Balcome and Sarah Frank have also provided a "challenge" donation, in which they will match donations given to the group (up to $7500), which has helped tremendously to reach their goal. (The challenge is still active, so if you wish to donate and have your gift count DOUBLE, go to the StageWest website and help as best you can.)
Going forward, both StageWest and Repertory Theatre of Iowa are examining their roles in the central Iowa theatre community. To better understand the desires of their audiences, and to develop their brands more effectively, they are asking for responses to a survey about their shows, their perceived styles and branding, and about theatre in general in the area.
If you wish to be a part of this survey, you can click on this link to be taken their introduction to the survey, and then on to the questions. It's important that theatre, as a live, interactive medium, is responsive to its audience, and this is one way you can show that response. Would you prefer certain types of shows? Are there venue issues you would like them to be more aware of? Scheduling issues that keep you from attending shows you'd like to see?
Let your voice be heard, and help shape theatre in Central Iowa. Let them know "What You Want."
