Tuck, Public Relations Director

We're kicking off this newsletter with a message from Tuck, the Public Relations Director of Pittsboro's Center for the Arts (above).

Hello, humans and animals!

You may have seen me lounging around the Sweet Bee Caffé. You may think I can only see what's at my eye level, but I can see so much. I see kids coming to their music lessons and theatre rehearsals, I see Pittsboro patrons stopping by for a cup of coffee, and I see the art decorating the walls of the Sweet Bee Theater.

Here's the thing, though. Center for the Arts can only stay a reality if we all spread the word. I see more human friends than canine friends, but I try to tell everyone I know that every cup of Sweet Bee Caffé coffee supports the local arts. And if you tell just one friend about what Center for the Arts is up to, I promise you'll get a faster wag in your tails and a pep in your step.

Love and licks,

“This play, I feel, is incredibly important right now. School shootings have become far too common - kids aren’t terrified by the idea anymore, it’s just something that happens. That should never had occurred.” - Jacqui (“Freak”)

“I felt like this [show] was a good opportunity to spread a message that would be beneficial to society.” - Ethan (“Jock”)

“I felt like many people knew Columbine as just a shooting, but nobody knew the story behind it. And it’s important for people to know what happened and what caused it, and maybe what we could have done to prevent what did happen.” - Jake (“Loner”)

“The play really addresses a lot of things that happen in normal, everyday high schools. There’s a lot to do with stereotypes and breaking down stereotypes.” - India (“Perfect”)

***Interview starts around the 42 minute mark
