The first night of the play opened with 180 people in attendance, and as the saying goes, “You could have heard a pin drop,” and we sold a over 85 books during the two shows!
I owe a great thanks to Dwight, the owner of the Joyo, for he made the whole thing possible by allowing us to put on the show. I also owe the Dodging Bullets a big, “THANK YOU,” for they were well-received by the audience and they took their roles as promoters of the show seriously.
Last but not least, my cast were a great crew to work with. Denny Ladue floored me with his performance as Detective Shepherd. Cheri Marti nailed her role as Miss Thurston. Nate, Alex, and Brandon did an exceptional job of portraying the troubled kids in the play. And now that the show is over, I’m planning on having it taped so we can present it to a larger audience.
A special thanks to Dennis Buckley of the Neighborhood Extra and Roger Yant of Around Town, and also to the folks at Ground Zero. With their coverage for the play, we had an audience of over 300 people for the two nights of the show!
Another special thanks to all my old friends from Havelock who came to show their support. It seems like yesterday when I sat down there at Havelock Park debating the great mysteries of life with you!
