In the month of August a terrible storm developed right over South Louisiana and caused a great flood that covered most of the city of Baton Rouge and surrounding parishes. While this unfortunate circumstance caused a heavy state of grief in our city, we never had any intention of staying down. Rather, in strong Louisiana fashion, we got up and began to move forward. Among those who chose to turn a minor setback into a major comeback, was the cast and crew of SATCHMO AT THE WALDORF. Instead of simply canceling the show, it was merely post-poned, and now they are back in rehearsal and more motivated than ever before to give this community a great show. That's what New Venture Theatre is all about...... That's what Louisiana is all about! #SatchmoNVT #WeLoveNVT #LouisianaStrong #UnBRoken #MovingForward
