In My Dreams

According to an industry insider, Winter’s North American tour has been cancelled due to slow ticket sales. With shows only selling at 40 to 60 percent capacity, Winter needs a real hit to reboost her fan base.

“Ticket sales have been terrible for this particular tour,” said show promoter Kris Kringle. “We were forced to cut the season short because of production costs.”

Despite a lineup including Christmas, Valentine’s Day, and St. Patrick’s Day, the season’s popularity has continued to decline.

“I am in utter disbelief that a season of this stature, with the most exciting displays I’ve seen in years, could not galvanize ticket sales,” Punxsatawney Phil, a longtime show supporter, said on the official Winter website.

One anonymous source blamed increasing creative difficulties as the season progressed. Winter’s steep snow, thickening ice, and repeated power outages heralded the sharp downturn in popularity that eventually sank her season. “Winter has always had trouble knowing where to draw the line,” the source said. “The same beautiful snow that makes her so magical can turn her fans against her in a heartbeat if she takes it too far.”

Kringle stated Winter would be taking some time off to re-evaluate her show’s size and scope. “This decision will only benefit her and her fans when she comes back after the fall.”

Fans holding tickets for cancelled shows can receive refunds at their point of purchase.

Winter couldn’t be reached for comment.

    I am still a huge fan even after 44″ in 4 days and a new record for winter total of snow – plus power outages and kids home.

    Winter can have a reunion tour next year in my neck of the woods all she wants. It isn’t even March yet.

    :lol: We are actually having nice weather…..beautiful sunny days, the rooftops are melting, but the snow seems to stay on the ground. It’s pretty…… but then I live on a paved road with city plows with a store 1 mile away, and I see people pretty much every day.

    I’m afraid dreaming is about as good as it’s going to get at the moment. I’m wondering where in upstate NY Sarah is with snowdrops blooming under the snow :? Mine are buried under about 6 inches….nowhere in sight! Winter has NOT lost its hold here!
    Thanks for the smiles this morning Suzanne. A little sunshine would go a long way! :sun:

    I’ve decided to attend the show with enthusiasm… since I already have the tickets, complaining about it probably won’t help one bit! I will keep an eye out for scalpers with tickets for Spring’s show though! :purpleflower:

    Oh, I’m reading “High Stakes Homecoming” and enjoying it very much, during the “winter tour”. :snowman: Hoping Mr. :sun: will turn on the high beams and melt it all away, never to be seen until next year!

  14. Phyllis Ryan says:

    Count me in on the ticket to Spring. We have had a long, cold, wet (and even a sprinkle of snow) Winter. And we live in Florida.

  15. Chic says:

    I’m done…I don’t need anymore winter thanks! :hissyfit:

    Suzanne, sometimes I’d just like to find a little corner of your mind to climb into and sit around in just to see how it works. Clever, clever writing. And funny.

  17. Moi says:

    Thank goodness. I’ve had it up to HERE with Winter. I crave spring!

  18. Deb says:

    Looks like Winter is staging a comeback tour here in Iowa; expecting 3-6″ of snow and wind tomorrow…..I tried to return my tickets but they said “no returns, no refunds.”

    You’re so creative! :happyflower:

    This was a hoot! Thanks for the post and the chuckle.

    I think that today, winter was canceled here. It’s 62 degrees on the shaded porch and sunny.

  24. Patty says:

    I hope your dreams come true! It’s been in the 50s-60s here in NE Tennessee yesterday and today, and there’s sunshine and birds! I don’t want to hope too much though. I know at any moment Winter could come back and turn everything cold icy and white again.

  25. SuzzyQ says:

    Amen to the clever and creative comments. Winter was basically a no-show where I live but we got more than our share the last two years, so perhaps he is taking a well deserved break. Fine with me!

  26. MMHONEY says:

    MY GRANDMOTHER ALWAYS SAID “WATCH OUT FOR THE EASTER SQUAW’ don’t dig out your spring coat.

  27. Cindy says:

    Winter doesn’t even need to refund the price of my ticket. Just get outta town! Thanks for the giggle, Suzanne.

  28. Suzanne says:

    Love it! You are so creative, thanks for sharing that talent with us.
