This past weekend we were lucky enough to have the very talented Kasey Samuel Adams in the audience. He took many photos during Patience, and has been kind enough to allow us to link to them. Please check them out!
I hope you were one of the many that joined us this past weekend – we had a very appreciative audience. Thanks to those of you that joined us for a few hours to listen and laugh – we were glad to see you smiling back at us!
We’ve often said that it takes a village to raise a light opera and our production of Patience was no exception! Producing any show is no small feat – we truly couldn’t have done it without a lot of assistance. Many thanks to those of you who pitched in and helped make Patience a reality:
St. Andrew’s United Methodist Church
First Presbyterian Church
Fort Findlay Playhouse
University of Findlay
The Bike Shop
Croys: T.C. & Son
Tom & Linda Croy
Of course, we’d be remiss without giving a huge thanks to the cast, crew, orchestra and other behind the scenes folks – our most profound thanks to Esther, Deb, Tina, Maggie, Sheryl, Alicia, Tammy, Casey, Megan, Eric, James, Jason, George, Talyn, Bob, Joseph, m. James, Adam, Dimitri, Jeff, Jonathan, Sharon, Desra, Golda, Regina, Anna & Matt.
Finally, our most sincere gratitude goes to Sandra Krueger who handled pretty much everything for the show, including making most of it up! She wore the hat of re-imaginer, director, music director, tech director, choreographer and all around superwoman. Without Sandra the show would not have happened – thank you so much for your hard work!
This isn’t your great-great-grandmother’s version of the Gilbert & Sullivan classic operetta (though the costumes may be vintage). Come join us for a modern retelling filled with epic poetry battles, hipsters riding bicycles, football players singing about jock itch and humor for all!
Tickets are available at the door at St. Andrew’s church in downtown Findlay. You get all this for only $10 a ticket, open seating. You do not want to miss this once in a lifetime rendition of Patience!
Patience is at 8:00 PM tonight and tomorrow night (Oct 24-25) with a 2:00 PM performance on Sunday (October 26).
St Andrews is located at 120 W. Sandusky Street, Findlay, Ohio 45840. Please enter at the Crawford St entrance on the North side of the building, across from the Municipal Building.
Parking is available on the street, in the St. Andrews parking lot (West of the church) and in the Municipal Building parking lot
Its almost here, gang! Patience will open in less than 32 hours! We’re looking forward to putting on an excellent, hilarious show. We’ve got a set. We’ve got an orchestra. We’ve got a dedicated and talented cast. We’ve got cookies for intermission. We’ve got an epic poetry slam – face to face and selfie to selfie. Heck, there’s even an underwear stealing mascot! All we need now is your smiling face in the audience!
Tickets are available for pre-sale through tomorrow afternoon via the Arts Partnership Box Office (419-422-4624) and online. I’ve also heard that Sandra even has some tickets that’s she’s carrying around, and, of course, we’ll be offering them at the door. Come join us for an evening of laughs!
Several of you contacted us because you were unable to get tickets from The Arts Partnership box office today. We were unaware that they were scheduled to be closed, and apologize for any confusion. The box office will be open the rest of this week and can be reached at 419-422-4624. You can also order tickets online and they will be available at the door.
Our friends at St. Andrews also let us know that we are more than welcome to park in their lot to the West of the building between Sandusky and Crawford. Parking is also available at the Municipal Building parking lot. Both of these are very close to the Crawford Street entrance, which is the entrance we’ll be using for the performances this weekend – we hope to see you there!
No worries – we’ve got a link to our appearance on WFIN right here! Many thanks to Chris and Dave for fitting us into their schedule this morning!
If you heard us this morning we hope you’ll join us this weekend for our rendition of Patience!

Tickets are $10 and can be reserved at the Arts Partnership box office at 419-422-4624 or purchased online. Tickets will also be available at the door. Doors will open a half hour before curtain time.
