To facilitate the swift entry and egress of school groups the recent front of house renovations to the foyer entrance included an additional side door further down the street near where a bus could stop and away from the main foyer area. Despite this, school groups continued to come and go in a laggardly manner and wreck the whole of the foyer on their way. Rumours of the new side door being constricted, stuck or locked proved to be unfounded as the new side door, in fact, didn’t exist.
You see, school groups tickets are at concession prices; school groups almost always attend matinee performances; and matinee tickets are also at concession prices. So, because school groups have concession tickets and other concession ticket holders enter the theatre through the foyer, the builders chose no to install the side door near the bus stop. The foreman had insightlessly inferred the architect had made a mistake; a mistake so obvious and understandable that it would be disrespectful to mention it to the architect. Instead they simply went ahead and didn’t do it.
The fact the administrative staff had gone to the trouble of getting planning permission to erect an awning over the new doorway was simply disregarded - maybe they’d had a coupon from the City Council which was about to expire, or a training need.
