Default Most important?

Well, if we don't have heat, it will be spring before we can put on a show, so I guess the furnaces come first.
Next we have a couple of small leaks in the roof, so we'll have to blackjack the roof to keep the snow and rain out. We need to get our stage lighting at least workable, but I'm hoping that's something I can manage.

I have a bad knee, so getting on ladders and the roof will be a challenge.

Just got a little bad news. Smokey and I are friends and had shaken hands on the deal, but he is 91 years old, and his family suddenly decided they don't like the idea of me using his name on the theater. You can't fight family, so we'll be changing the name again. (heavy sigh).
Oh well... no shortage of names, I guess.

I look forward to you introducing us to the 'new' name. Enjoy the brainstorming.

Default New Name

We have other alternatives. The Company we use for shows has been ColorBlind Productions... so we were considering that or ColorBlind Entertainment.
And by the way... yes. I'm colorblind... lol!

We'll also consider any name ideas that are offered!

At this point, we are considering a combination of old and new names. We're thinking of calling it the "Camelot Palace Showplace/Showcase".

Camelot Entertainment

or

how about Branson North?

Something about connotation of "palace" doesn't seem quite right...it will need to grow on me a bit more.

We were thinking of the first theater, the Palace that was located in what now is the Ben Franklin.

Ideas we've heard:
The New Camelot
Nevada's Got Talent
Circle 2
Branson North
Camelot 2012
Talent House
House of Talent
George Talent Showcase (cause you can hug him, squeeze him, love him, and call him George...) (We'll see how many people get this one.)

When I hug my kids I say that. They just look at me blankly. :-)

Hmmm... when I hugged my kids, I was usually checking their pockets for contraband... lol! just kidding, our boys are grown with teenagers of their own, and I'm VERY proud of them.

There was an old warner brothers cartoon with a big hairy monster that somehow got a hold of Daffy Duck and said, "I'll hold him, and squeeze him, and kiss him, and hug him, and I'll call him GEORGE", all said in a comic "challenged" voice.You almost had to be there... lol!
