So Darrell Bryan steps down to do other projects. Wonder what that will be?

And now they hire an out of town group to run it. Why not someone in Greeneville? Is there no one it this town capable of doing this job?

Every time I hear of someone "stepping down" I envision someone with a different policy agenda at the top of the steps, "pushing" forward in a "heave-ho stance" & then later hear that such and such stepped down. Guess I'm being cynical again! Lol

No. If we want quality performers, I really don't think that any local is qualified. Good thing Darrell Bryan is out, maybe things will improve.

I certainly hope that we will now be able to get some quality music here, instead of shows that only appeal to a small group of baby boomers. How about some classic rock, blues, jazz, or quality country (NOT the Oak Ridge Boys) etc.!!!!

I always hated to hear the TV or radio commercials for NPAC... It sounded like DB was BARKING at you like a bulldog. Not very pleasant.

Darrell did a good job. Eight years is a long retirement job. He deserves a break.

Many businesses are contracting work and using part-timers now to avoid Obamacare, etc.

He should have been out long ago. Anyone that travels or has lived in a city with a similar performing arts center would realize that the NPAC has been mismanaged for years, especially as it pertains to the acts that come in. I realize you can't please everyone, but look at the acts that have performed there over the years, it's quite sad! Hopefully the new management will bring new direction for the beautiful facility. We're lucky to have such a center!

It really is a nice facility & we are lucky to have it. I would imagine the reason that some of the shows are somewhat "lack luster" is due to being able to get them at a lower cost & therefore having a higher profit margin for NPAC. More popular bands would mean considerably higher ticket prices & possibly a significantly lower profit margin unless they really jacked the ticket prices even higher to get a greater profit. Most people already complain about $40ish ticket prices. I would be willing to pay upwards of $75 for some great entertainment rather than driving out of town. I also imagine sales are down in these sucko economic times.

Mr. Niswonger made a significant investment so our town could have this great venue, then placed Darrell as the director, who made it a complete failure.

More people would be attending shows there if there were more quality acts ... even local entertainers. There has been more quality musicians at the Dogwood Park Summer Concert Series through the years than what has been at NPAC .... and the park shows are FREE!!!!!!
