My wife and I have a major squawk with the management of the Westfield Mall, formerly the Sunrise Mall in Massapequa, and the Massapequa schools music departments. The mall management had a full-page ad published in Newsday announcing that the Massapequa schools Talent Showcase would be held on Monday, Dec. 18 at 5 p.m. in the food court. When we arrived at 4:45 p.m., the place was mobbed, there weren't enough chairs and any type of stage set up, so the children who were performing were at the same level as the audience; they couldn't be seen and the sound system was terrible. The schoolteachers and a mall representative doing the announcing couldn't be heard at all. It was a "big flop." We felt sorry for the six performing Massapequa schoolchildren and their parents, who were looking forward to a nice early evening of holiday music. We hope that the next time the Showcase is held in the mall, there will be a stage and a state-of-the-art sound system. We left after the first performance very disappointed.
