Producer's Note from the program
Past Shows - 1984 The Pajama Game

I would like to welcome you this evening to the 16th season of Peter Quince Performing Company Ltd. and the presentation of The Pajama Game. In my third year of Peter Quince, I have been honored and privileged to work with many talented people. I have found that the youth of the lakeshore area are very talented, with a lot of energy to back it up.

From the time I joined Peter Quince as a chorus member in Dames at Sea and The Boyfriend, i have seen what dedication, self-discipline, and a sense of pride can do. This spirit seems to show through at the strangest times. All of the frustration, sweat, and hard work seem priceless as soon as the curtain rises. Whire reading this, the excitement and energy in the dressing rooms is building to a high that few people experience. You will have the opportunity to feel this energy as the curtain rises and the performers take you away.

I have seen all the facets, from the business end to raw construction, and I know that a lot of people go unnoticed. So now I would like to add a personal thank-you to all of those who helped, but will not be physically seen on stage. For without them a curtain could not rise and no show would be.

I would like to close by dedicating this show, not to all who have won or lost, but to those who have tried. For trying is our first and biggest hurdle we have to overcome to reach all of our dreams.

Thank You,
Enjoy the Show,

Jeffrey A. Blashka
Producer and Chairman of the Board

Director's Note from the program
Past Shows - 1984 The Pajama Game
Good Evening and Welcome to the Pajame Game!

About eight weeks ago, we had our first read-through of the play you are about to see this evening. At that time, I felt that I had something special on my hands and I haven't lost that feeling since. We have a lot of new people this year, with a new type of enthusiasm. For all of the hard work and long hours put in, I would just like to thank my cast, our crews, and a few people who know who they are who put in an extra effort to keep the momentum going our way. I hope you enjoy the show.

Thank you for coming,
Tim Gadzinski
