Consider yourself sincerely thanked

When counting the blessings of 2018, we would be remiss if gratitude for our production of “Oliver!” was not expressed.

A process that began in spring of 2018 is now finally wrapped up. The bills have been paid. The costumes, set pieces and body mics have been returned. But the memories created both on and off stage will linger for a long time. And you, the “community” of Defiance Community Players, need to be acknowledged for your part in making this production happen. Here goes:

Thank you, our wonderful sponsors, for your help in funding “Oliver!” Your generosity made this dream a reality. Without your contributions, it would not have happened.

Thank you, our hospitable venue providers. You, GSMS, GSHS, St. Barnabas, and St. Stephen’s, gave us a home for our creative process. You provided us with a safe place for theatre to happen. This is rare and we so appreciate your sacrifices and scheduling creativity.

Thank you, all members of the creative team for the unselfish giving of your time and talents to put on the show. The connection that you made with the audience was special indeed as their applause will attest. You told the story through your efforts and the lessons that were taught were important ones. You made a positive difference.

Finally, thank you to all who understand that “community” is not defined by where you live or by a city limit sign, but rather the spirit that comes from within. So, if you bought a ticket, hung a poster, bought a cookie at the concession stand, hauled set pieces, or volunteered in any capacity, know that the scholarships generated by “Oliver!” are the products of your generous spirits. We hope that you feel the joy that you helped create. You have taken a step to insure the future of the performing arts in the “community” that we share.

Looking forward now to 2019 and what we all can create by working together.

Sincere thanks from Defiance Community Players — proud to be your community theatre for over 45 years.
