Volunteers Rally for Playwright Reception

Curtain Players recognizes the volunteers who helped prepare, host, and clean up the Saturday September 16 reception honoring visiting Wendy Darling playwright Ira Hauptman.

Board trustee Debb Miller chaired the event at the Harlem Road playhouse. Her team included volunteers Wendy Brinker, Michael Fusco, Terri Fusco, Casey Merkey, Booth Muller, Barb Newton, James F. Petsche, Jackie Salvador, Mario Salvador, Heather Schultz, and Laura Tirronen.

Hauptman traveled from New York City for the September 16-17 Wendy Darling performances. Hauptman wrote the unpublished script receiving its first-ever fully staged production at Curtain Players.

Hauptman met dozens of Players, patrons, and guests at the preshow reception before introducing his play to a near sold-out house. He returned for the September 17 matinee and participated in the Curtain Panels audience talk back following the show.

Wendy Darling opened Season 55 at Curtain Players on Friday September 8. The final weekend of performances is set for Friday-Sunday September 22-24. To order tickets, click here.
