Get Your Cans Over to SCR and OCPAC
Nice, you're saying, but what's so bold about that? Every elementary school's fourth grade class does the same thing, right?
Well, what is bold about the Arts Can Food Drive is, and let me repeat, they are encouraging audience members to bring non-perishable food to shows. Anyone who has watched silent films, medieval-period pieces or Mel Brooks comedies knows that restless crowd folk soon dip into their bags and pockets and start launching rotten tomatoes at stage performers. I've never understood why audiences would bring rotten produce to a show, but that's not the point right now. The point is I'd rather dodge rotten tomatoes than non-perishable cans of Hormel Turkey Chili.
