Now that the applause has faded and the cast party has been cleaned up, it’s nice to reflect on what a wonder of collaboration Nancy Drew and the Halloween Hoax has been. It was an ambitious, quirky little show from the start, and every time a challenge arose, there was someone in the WAG community stepping up to find a solution. From our ghost writer WAG mom to our teenage stage manager, to our treasurer/set designer, we were all stretched a little further than we had been before. For as exciting as it was to sell out two shows and hear a variety of audience accolades, the real measure of success has not changed from our very first season: the glowing faces of the children on cast and crew, beaming with pride in a job well-done.
We are grateful for the opportunity to serve WAG as co-directors; it has offered us a unique perspective on the beauty of community theatre.
One last time, we thank all of the ND families and WAG Board & Production Team for your sacrifices over the last several weeks. You’ve touched our hearts and made Wylie a better place.
