For me, sentimental emotions took over on Saturday watching the final performance there. I first went to see Alan perform there in December 2008. He invited me to see him in A Christmas Carol as he knew it was a favorite of mine. He was playing the role of Scrooge. This is significant to me as it was the beginning of me going out again socially after the loss of my husband Charlie. After seeing the performance and quite a few more, we started dating and were married in 2010. The members of the theatre company have come to mean a lot to me as well. So, seeing this chapter come to a close was rather sad. There was a happy moment during the performance, though. They had an audience member propose marriage! I love that there was a new beginning starting that night! So I hope they will be as happy as my husband and I are.

I am looking forward to seeing what the future holds for this great group of performers and, more importantly, great people!
Until next time!
