Now that we've wrapped "Junie B.," we've completed strike, the exhaustion has worn off, and the adrenaline has waned, we'd like to focus for just a moment and thank the many individuals, businesses, media outlets, and schools that helped make our first production of the year a smashing success. All told, we performed it for more than 4,500 audience members!
We couldn't do what we do each season without the financial support of our corporate sponsors. Those include: Memorial Auditorium, Elias Tawil MD FACS, Miller's Professional Imaging and Mpix, The Coleman Family Foundation, Inc, the Family of Jo Swigart, and KOAM-Fox 14. We'd also like to thank our annual individual donors, of which there are many, and those who played a significant role with this show specifically, including: The Morning Sun, The Joplin Globe, Andra Stefanoni, Pittsburg High School, Jenna Spencer, Janice Jewett/Pitt State HPER Department, Pittsburg State University Dance Showcase, Y Academy of Dance, Terri Steele, and Pitt Craft Printing.
Lastly, it's always amazing to reflect on a show through photographs, from the "before" to the "after." Here are a few that illustrate just how far our cast, crew, directors, and technical staff can come in a few fast-paced weeks:
