ARTrageous Saturdays at UC Blue Ash College
Thank you for your patronage. It’s been a wonderful run!
We want to be sure that you are aware of plans to discontinue the ARTrageous Saturdays and Rhythm ‘n’ Blue Ash programs hosted at UC Blue Ash College. This change goes into effect this summer, which means there will not be any shows during the 2015-16 academic year.
This decision was not easy; these programs have been popular with certain portions of the local community over the years and they have certainly provided wholesome entertainment. But they also require a lot of time and resources in terms of money and personnel.
Rather than consider raising ticket prices and adding more staff, this shift is the result of a thorough evaluation we have been conducting with all of our events to make sure that our time and resources are focused on what we do best – supporting our mission of providing our students with the education, support and services they need to succeed. We are constantly striving to be more aligned and efficient in all of our events and operations.
While we are making this change with our performing arts programs, we remain as committed as ever to supporting our community and continuing to develop projects like UC Smiles and X is for X-Ray to benefit area schools, the community and our UC Blue Ash students.
We hope that you understand the reasoning behind our decision to discontinue ARTrageous Saturdays and Rhythm ‘n’ Blue Ash. If you should have any questions, please contact the UC Blue Ash Dean’s Office at (513) 745-5660. Thank you.
