On behalf of the director, cast, and crew, I would like to welcome each of you to our small-town village festival, and thank you for your crucial support.
I would like to acknowledge the contributions of the many people who make this festival possible. It is a wonderful thing that so many individuals and corporations in our surrounding communities have been so generous in giving freely towards this endeavor. I would like to sincerely thank all of our individual and corporate sponsors for their help and support. Without their contributions this kind of cultural activity would surely not be possible in a rural area.
Please be sure to look over the list of sponsors for this year's show and patronize their businesses whenever you can. Thank you donors! As I am sure you know, an incredible amount of volunteer time and energy goes into pulling off a production of this size. Please join me in thanking the entire cast and crew (and their spouses) and all who volunteer for investing so much of their valuable resources to make this event a success. I am very grateful for all that they contribute. Thank you!
Lastly, and most importantly, thank you to St. Mary’s Academy and College for allowing us to rent the land we are on and to St. Mary herself for watching over our efforts. As we continue to grow, we are always looking for new ways to increase the quality of our offering. With your help we can certainly do that. Please do not hesitate to let us know what you think, and above all, consider becoming a donor or volunteer. Thank you, and please remember to “gently hear and kindly judge our play.”
