We need a soccer ball - for the play - Kinky Boots... anyone have one to share? Let me know if you do - Pam
The West Side Leader didn't give Memphis a very good review. The cast and crew must have stepped it up. Memphis was fantastic. Strong singing, great energy, very funny and told a wonderful story. Love Jonathan Merechant! Have seen him rock many Weathervane roles! Lead characters were very strong. Great job by all!
My husband and I saw Memphis tonight. Shout out to this AMAZING cast. It is an incredible production! If you are able to get a ticket, go see it!! 😃🎭🎟❤️
Tonight’s performance of ‘Memphis’ exceeded my expectations! If you are considering attending a performance, I encourage you to do so. It’s a strong storyline mixed with some humorous moments and a seriously talented cast! The music will make you want to dance! A well deserved standing ovation on opening night! (due to some of the language, I personally wouldn’t recommend for children)
Bravo to all cast and crew of “Memphis”!
I'm doing props for Memphis at Weathervane playhouse...the play is so good..and..it makes me want to cry.
Do NOT miss ALIAS GRACE, a riveting sorry with excellent acting. So glad I saw it yesterday!
Thank you for volunteering for the cast supper January 12. This includes Jill Forster, Clarissa Moser, Fran Korman, Nancy Mahoney (every time), Nancy Schafer and me, Wendy Cooley.
Thank you to the volunteers who gift wrapped at Barnes and Noble this holiday season. They include Bev Ricks, Helen Vari, Marta Williger, Mary Kay Finn, Mitzi Mild, Brenda Costarella, Alex Van Allen, Kevin Lambes, Harriet DeVito, Ralph Cooley (3 times) and me. We had fun and made over $300. Love you all, Wendy Cooley
Holiday decorations are finally done for tomorrow's preview of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat!
Thank you to Brenda Costerella, Nancy Mahoney, Nancy Schafer, Jill Forster, Helen Vari, Mitzi Mild, Elynmarie Kazle Zimmerman, Tom Stephan AKA Lawson Dip Man, Ralph Cooley and his wife Wendy for the wonderful cast supper yesterday. I think every kid (and adult) loved it. Volunteer Guild is the best! 😍
We really enjoyed the 8 x 10 performances last night. Our favorites were "What's Love Got To Do With It, Twenty Questions From Hell and Resisting.". I needed the comic relief and the actors and writers filled my need. Thank you so much for a great evening AGAIN at Weathervane.
