Producer's Note from the program
Past Shows - 1970 Guys and Dolls
Musical theatre is often associated with magic; musicals are fantasies, fables and dreams. To those on the other side of the footlights, seeing that limited view that transverses time and reality, the magic might be mistaken for the transformation of wood, paint and muslin into plaster and stone, remnants into flashy costumes, a teenager into an old man, or a ream of impossible score into an unforgettable tune. Indeed, this is magic of a sort, for I have worked with the magicians that created it: the technical crews, the costumiers, directors, actors, makeup artists and musicians are just a few. But this is not the real magic, for like the best magicians, they are but skilled artists--from office staff to ushers--working to create the illusion of magic.

When the lights are out, costumes return to remnants, the old man washes away his age and the muslin is only painted cloth. When they speak of the magic of the theatre, the real magic, people are speaking of the something special that theatre people possess that makes show business possible. These are the people who want to take a playwright's script into their care, find money to feed into it, to worry, laugh, and cry over it as it grows into a show to live but two nights for the audience.

This willingness to seek responsibility for what seems an impossible venture is the contagious spirit of Peter Quince and the real magic of theatre.

We all believe in magic. Perhaps theatre is linked so closely with magic because it depends upon it so. From the day we took the script under our care we believed our audience would be here to share our magic tonight. And like magic, tonight you are here. Our deepest thanks for believing in us and our dreams and for being something we can believe in.

Reed Humphrey
