Dear Editor and fellow cast members:
I want to thank the whole town and community for being as wonderfully receptive as they were for last weekend’s “I Wanna Laugh” improv comedy shows at the Town Hall. It just made our job so much easier.
To Charlene Van Veen: Thank you for being so open and honest with your performance. You are incredibly wonderful and talented.
To Brendon Lyoness (who was actually the lion of our troupe, who kept things moving on): I love your energy and commitment.
To Lucy Quaglia: You are the most wonderful physical comedienne I’ve worked with. What held you back a little bit in language you sure made up for with your sheer determination and physical performance.
To Janet Horwood: My god, you crazy lady. How much I love you. You throw yourself into everything.
To Don Wells: You are so grounded and yet were willing to throw yourself into this project. It was so wonderful.
To John Stevens: Again, another calm before the storm. But then, yourself, you were part of the storm and you flowed through it brilliantly.
To Tania Harvey: You were brilliant. You did a wonderful sketch on teaching squirrels how to figure skate on Saturday night.
To Josey Christmas: Thank you to my very good friend, who helped me through a lot of difficult time just with her demeanour, her laughter and her overall talent.
And, finally, to our instructor, Liane Gregory-Sterritt: You were a pillar of strength and a wonderful conduit of kindness.
Don’t look, leap!
I cannot thank you guys enough for everything that you did.
