Dear Antrim Patrons,

Spring is nearly here. The snow is melting, the temperature is rising and the days are getting longer. What a great time to get out of the house after this long winter and come to the theater. You'll be glad you did as you can still catch the final weekend of Doubt. This show has been getting rave reviews from everyone who has seen it. Final performances are t his Friday, Saturday and Sunday so don't miss out. Then get ready to be amazed by Randy Accardi's incredible interpretation of "Damn Yankees" opening on Thursday April 11th. In addition to the extraordinary singing, dancing and staging that we have come to expect from Randy's shows the special effects will wow you. We have lots of surprises planned for this show as we turn our theater into the "Antrim Ballpark". We will be serving hot dogs, cracker jack, peanuts, popcorn and lots more. We will be giving away baseball tickets on Friday nights (you must be present to win) plus other promotions.For the first time we are opening one of our productions on Thursday April 11th rather than Friday. We are also offering a special price for this Thursday performance, 2 tickets for $30. Like most of our musicals I expect Damn Yankees to sell out quickly I urge you to make your reservations now. 
 
Our "Cruise For 2" raffle to Bermuda is going strong. We are now offering the ability to buy tickets online through our website. You can either add on the raffle tickets when you purchase show tickets or click the button at the top of the home page to buy raffle tickets only. This is a quick and secure way for you to take a chance on this wonderful prize and to help Antrim at the same time. There is a $1.25 fee for online purchases. And remember, we need people to sell the tickets. Everyone is welcome to sell them as a way of helping your theater raise money. As an added bonus for every 15 tickets you sell you get a free one for yourself. Just see me or any board member at the show to get your tickets or send an email to info@antrimplayhouse;com and someone will get back to you.

 

We have 3 board members whose terms will be expiring in May. I want to thank them all for all the hard work they have done to keep Antrim running during these difficult times. We are forming a nominating committee to find replacements for our board and every Antrim member is eligible to serve. Please see the details in this newsletter and on our website. Please contact me if you are interested in becoming a Board Of Director member.  

 

Please plan on attending our General Meeting on Wednesday March 20th at 7:30PM. Details are in this newsletter and also on our website.  

 

We are nearly finished completing our slate of productions for next season and this will be announced during Damn Yankees in April.  

 

As I do every month, I want to once again thank the teams of actors, production staff and volunteers who make our productions possible and to the countless other people who work everyday of the season to make this theater run. I would be remiss if I didn't thank you, our loyal patrons, for supporting us. Without you none of this would be possible or necessary.  

   

Thank You and I'll see you at the theater,

Marty Andreas
