Playhouse President's Holiday Address for December Show Program:

I am writing this note at the end of one of the most successful years the Playhouse has experienced. We started with a highly applauded and artistic success of Kevin Sosbe's directorial rendition of George Orwell's 1984. At that time, we were fortunate enough to begin utilizing our new green room and bathrooms care of Clay Cope and the great town of Sherman. Next up, was a critically acclaimed short run of Lanford Wilson's beautiful comedy-drama, Talley's Folly. I was honored and privileged to be lucky enough to direct those two fine veteran actors, Michael Wright and Stacy-Lee Frome. Our summer was bedazzled with an exciting rendition of an old classic, Arsenic and Old Lace, which brought back to the stage the fine performance skills of our local professional actress, Ms. Patricia Michael. Then, we brought the house down with a raucous and joyous version of The Rocky Horror Show, directed by the gifted and talented, Arnold Daley, complete with packed houses, standing ovations and record breaking ticket sales. When that train started it was unstoppable.

We are now rounding out our wonderful season with a star studded and highly entertaining version of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland. Beth Bonnebeau has enlisted a cast of wonderful veterans and exciting newcomers to round out our holiday season with a glorious treat.

What gives me pleasure while looking back at this stupendous season is the knowledge that our consistency is highly palpable and we always seem to get it (very) right. I believe that this trend will only continue to grow more and more to create exciting and talented production choices in the future of the Playhouse. We are blessed next year to have Katherine Almquist back as director for our first offering of 2016, Noel Coward's, Blythe Spirit. Next, our new to the Playhouse, but highly experienced director Paul Tines from the Marvelwood School will be presenting Moliere's, Tartuffe this summer. The venerable Chesley Plemmons will be directing The Chalk Garden for the Fall. Yours truly will be rounding out our year with my production of Life With Father.

With this next season firmly in place, I encourage our Playhouse friends to please consider the idea of a subscription as a very welcome gift to a friend or loved one. It would be a great treat to have that lasts throughout the up and coming year.

I would like to thank our fantastic board members and our equally fantastic casts, crews and volunteers that have helped make this season a winner on so many levels. Have a joyous and fruitful holiday season.

Robin Frome, Playhouse President
