President's Corner

Dear Members,

  It's hard to believe that 2010 is nearly behind us. It has been quite a year for Antrim. Happiness, sadness, joy and tears. All the emotions that make great theater. We said goodbye to some very good friends of Antrim. We miss them dearly and wish only good things to their family and friends. We also welcomed some new friends to our Antrim family and hope they will stay with us for years to come. We said goodbye to a president who had served Antrim faithfully for over 5 years and said hello to a new one who is still trying to find his footing.

  I am proud to tell you that even in these difficult economic times our theater is thriving. We are one third of the way through our 2010-2011 season and have put on 2 main stage productions, The Odd Couple and Inherit The Wind, that were huge financial and artistic successes in spite of the hardships we faced with both of these shows. The credit goes to the cast and crew of both shows for their dedication and never quit attitude. I also want to thank our patrons for their understanding when faced with delays and cancellations.  You are the reason we do what we do and we appreciate your devotion and patience. We anticipate the same response from the remainder of our season which is shaping up to be one of our best ever.

  In addition to our mainstage productions we have been presenting entertainment such as Monologue Mania, Antrim Antics, play readings and seasonal parties. Due to the positive response we will continue to offer these exciting shows. Plans for 2011 include another version of Antrim Antics, a musical evening of rock and roll called The Filmore East At Antrim, comedy nights and much more. Stay tuned to our website for further details on dates.

  As you may know next year marks Antrim's 75th consecutive season.  We are currently making our plans and you can help us with this effort by emailing me your suggestions and thoughts on what you would like us to do to make our "Diamond Jubilee" unforgettable.

  I want to thank our board of directors and officers, Randy Accardi, Doreen DiBenedetto, Brianne Higgins, Jim Guarasci, Joe McDonald, Brooke Malloy, Kristin-Leigh Nicholson, Matt Ortiz, Tom Price and Blanche Rothstein for their dedication and hard work and for putting up with me as I slogged through my first 7 months as President.

  We have many volunteers at Antrim who make everything we do possible. From actors, directors, producers, stage managers and the dozens of other back stage functions that are so critical to producing quality shows.  Although we never seem to have enough and are always looking for people who want to help I want to thank everyone who donates their time and energy to Antrim. We would not exist without your efforts. I can't name everyone here but I do want to especially thank Jean Reda, Steve St. George, Behira and Deb Alkana, Lu France, Bill & Terri Conroy,Walter Johnston, Allan Seward, Rick Klein, Connie Taragano and Joyce Castronovo. Antrim is blessed to have you as part of our family.

  Last, but surely not least, I want to thank our hundreds of members, patrons, sponsors and friends. Your support, both financially and emotionally, is what really keeps this theater running.

  I wish you all a very Merry Christmas, a Happy Hanukkah and a joyous and prosperous New Year.
