President’s Corner: A Note from David Warnock
“What’s new at AFD?” Well, since the last Prologue, a number of things:
• The Indie Film Festival screened four short films on two nights in December, turning AFD Theater into a cinema.
• Neil McGarry’s one-man performance of A Christmas Carol, a Bay Colony Shakespeare Company production, delighted an audience of children and adults who joined us for a holiday party.
• The Sunset Boulevard movie-screening event at the Regent Theatre featured a red carpet, cast and guests in formal attire, a musical preview, and of course, the classic film.
• Six of the seven directors, music directors, and choreographers for next season are new to AFD!
• New-to-AFD Co-Producer, Barbara Moss, joins me in producing The Graduate.
• Five new board members are to be elected at the General Election Meeting March 26.
• An Inspector Calls had a successful run in November.
• Sunset Boulevard opens on March 3.
• The Graduate opens on May 12. •
The new 2017–2018 season was announced:
The Light in the Piazza
The Game’s Afoot or Holmes for the Holidays
9 to 5: The Musical
The call is going out for new short plays for ArlingTEN 2018.
There you have it! Our thanks to our volunteers, to the folks who think outside the box to create new events, to new collaborators, and to the dedicated members who make it all happen!
Looking forward to seeing you at our theater to see what else is new.
David Warnock, President
