Presidents Letter

February 16, 2007

Dear Members and Friends:

Welcome to our third revival of “Shhh! Don’t Wake the Corpse”. Mickey Sullivan has been raving about this show to me since I joined the group in 2001. Written by Betty Kash and co-directed with Denise Higgins-Regan, it was first produced by NCT in May 1992. Because it was such a hit, it was revived in February 1998, when Betty Kash went solo. I’m happy to report that Betty and Denise have teamed up once again to co-direct this Bay Ridge hit, and, with a stroke of genius, attract some surprise guests who will sure and make an audience laugh. This musical-comedy captures the spirit and culture of the people in a small town in Ireland attending a “ceili” given by Michael Francis Aloysious Finbar Brown.

I’m very proud to be part of this amazing cast and crew and happier still to partake in such a screwball, happy snapshot of real-life characters you might find in any Irish pub, in any town in Ireland. I have to admit that I became a little bit of an Irish lass meself during this show.

Why, who knew I would be baking Irish Soda Bread before the end of this production? And running out and buying “The Quiet Man”? Sit back, relax and be transported to the smallest town in Ireland and enjoy the ceili.

Susan Huizinga
