Presidents Letter

December 2011

Dear Members and Friends:
Season’s Greetings to all our Friends, Family and Members. We are joyous to be bringing you this live Christmas card. With a sweeping score by Alen Menken and lyrics by Lynn Arhens, A Christmas Carol, The Musical, tells the story of redemption through the Spirit of Christmas. Charles Dicken’s memorable classic is forever engraved in our hearts.

Was there ever a character as deliciously appalling and delightfully redeeming as Mr. Ebenezer Scrooge? Rather like Sweeney Todd morphing into Santa Claus. Alas, no redemption for Mr. Todd as he didn’t have three spirits to guide him. But we have Sean Jarrell, whose interpretation of Mr. Humbug Himself, is cause for a jubilee.

A toast to new-comer Jason Thomas Wiggins, as he Directed and educated us with passion, hard work and joy. Reminiscent of Betty Kash, an NCT Director who also understands the importance of the Ensemble.

We would like to thank Sheila Plummer, our Music Director for her first foray with NCT. Welcoming back No-Stranger-to-NCT, Jennifer DeVane, whose talents extend beyond choreography! She sews, too(!) lending an expert hand to Michelle Macdonald, as they whipped up beautiful period costumes.

Once again, our gratitude to Commander Gould, Deputy to the Commander Renee Citron, CMS Sylvia Laughlin, Sarah Johnson, Wallace Grant, Juan Caez, Rocco Mandile, Michael Campbell, Lisa Sheehan, Cathy SantoPietro and all the fabulous folks who we interact with at the Fort. We are humbly grateful for your support.

It was a gratifying year for Narrows Community Theater as we were welcomed back into the beautiful Fort Theater on our 40th Anniversary. It’s a gift to present shows from the Fort Hamilton Army Base. Yet, we will never forget our friends who sustained this wandering minstrel troupe for nine years, so stay tuned for The Unexpected Guest to be presented from our home away from home, St. Patrick’s in early Spring 2012.

Narrows Community Theater would like to wish you are yours the Best Christmas Ever. And in the immortal words of Tiny Tim “God Bless Us, Everyone.”

Susan Huizinga
