Many Thanks!

Plaid PhotoWe had an amazing time this past weekend performing Forever Plaid for three very appreciative audiences.  If you were one of the folks that laughed along with us, thanks for spending a few hours of your day with us – we hope you enjoyed it as much as we did!

Whenever we come to the end of an exhilarating show, its amazing to look back and see just how many people gave of their time and talents to make it happen.  There were many, many people and organizations that made Forever Plaid a reality – to you we say a very hearty thank you!  We truly could not have done it without the help of the following folks:

The Arts Partnership & Peggy Grandbois, Craig VanRenterghem, Sarah Foltz and Zach Huber
St. Andrew’s United Methodist Church
The Fort Findlay Playhouse & Julie Lane, Samantha Henry and Elizabeth Opperman
Youtheatre
Youth Orchestra
Findlay High School
Kenton City Schools
Findlay First Edition & Kevin Manley
Alexandria’s & Toni Lee
Bright Bows & Kimberly Bright

Of course, we’d be remiss if we didn’t thank those that did almost all of their work behind the scenes and didn’t get to stand in the spotlight – thanks to Zach Thomas, Becky Burrier, Jenn Denike, Mike Denike, Heidi Croy, JD Smith, Jean Daniel, Nathan Stockton & Jeff Dean – we truly could not have done it without you.

Finally, to those folks that put their talents on display for us all to see – thanks for your hard work, dedication and for three spectacular performances.  Harry & Celia Stockton, you did a simply wonderful job of putting together a show of this magnitude in fewer than 30 rehearsals. Abi Cullen, you were our rock back there, we’d play with you any day – and thanks for not leaving when you found you it was a pit of 2 – you really should have watched that YouTube video…  Seth Carey, Tyler Badertscher & David Marquart – you guys were a blast to work with!  Thanks for making rehearsals so fun, and for some truly marvelous performances.

Your last chance to see the Plaids…

Starts in 2 hours!  Join us this afternoon at the Ritz Auditorium in Old Main on the University of Findlay’s Campus!  Doors open at 1:30 PM, with the curtain at 2!

Tickets are $15 for adults and $10 for students – we’ll see you there!
