Why Margo Shideler, Washington, DC, likes the new calendar called

Margo Shideler lives in Washington, DC, but likes visiting friends and family in Shreveport. When she plans her trips to Louisiana she has a new resource:

"I use the new site to take a look ahead," she said. "If I want to see theater or dance at Thanksgiving, in many cases the dates and productions are already listed."

Indeed, many arts organizations are taking advantage of the site by listing their entire season. Examples: Shrevepprt Little Theater and BPCC's Cavalier Players.

As arts and tourism producers get acquainted with the possibilities, the public will see even more. For the moment, the site is a bright and colorful way to check on immediate possibilities in theater, dance, music, kids stuff, even science and nature. is a collaboration between Shreveport Regional Arts Council and the Shreveport-Bossier Convention and Tourism Bureau.
