President's Corner  

Dear Antrim Patrons,

 Our 75th Diamond Jubilee season has begun and judging by your response to our first show, Biloxi Blues, it is off to a great start. Nearly 1,000 people came to see the show and it received rave reviews from everyone including WRCR Radio, The Rockland County Times and Our Town newspapers. Congratulations to director Susan Binder, Stage Manager Leslie Dwarin and the entire cast and crew for a phenomenal job. Our next offering is the original comedy Antrim Antics 3 (Antrim Antics Hits The Big Time) opening on Friday Oct. 21st. This show, recommended for mature audiences, is an hilarious sketch comedy created and directed by Brianne Higgins and Dana Duff. It includes all original comedy written by the cast and crew. Saturday Night Live can't hold a candle to this so don't miss it. Order your tickets now.  


  I want to thank the France family for their loving care of our history. Over the summer they donated 3 huge file cabinets of memories from Antrim dating back to the 1920's. Brooke Malloy and Nancy Lopez with assistance from Steve St. George and Brianne Higgins spent countless hours sifting through the ton of items and decorating our downstairs lounge with an impressive display of our history. Thank you for your hard work and I urge everyone to view the displays the next time you are at the theater. I have reviewed a good deal of the information that was donated and I am amazed when I think of the great people that have guided Antrim in the past through both good and bad times. I am humbled to think that it is now my responsibility to continue that tradition of success. I'm not worried, though, I have a wonderful, caring board of directors and dozens of equally caring volunteers who love this theater as much as I do and will ensure that we pass along Antrim better than we found it. If you would like to join this "family" we have created please contact me at the number or email address listed at the end of this letter.    


  Our annual Halloween Party will be held on Friday Oct. 28th following the performance of Antrim Antics. All are welcome for a great night of music, dancing, food and drink. Randy Accardi will be DJ'ing the event so there will be plenty of dancing. We are also offering 50% off the ticket price to the show on this date for anyone coming in full costume.   


  I am pleased to announce that we have finally selected our musical for this season and Grease is the word. This award winning musical will be directed & choreographed by Randy Accardi and replaces A Chorus Line. Grease will run on the same dates as A Chorus Line and members can use those tickets for admittance.    


Thank you again for your support and I look forward to seeing you at the theater.
