Producer's Note from the program
Past Shows - 1992 Leader of the Pack
Good evening. It is with great pleasure - and pride - that I welcome you to tonight's performance of "Leader of the Pack."

Tonight's performance is more than the actors and actresses singing and dancing on stage. True, that is the product of two months long rehearsals, frequent frustrations and countless hours of worry. But more than that, it is a spirit, an emotion. It is the realization of a dream -- the intangible deep inside of you that you have always wanted but could never reach. Tonight, if only for a moment, we hope you may lose yourself in the magic that is theater and realize that dream with us. For this realization is the direct result of your generous support.

I would like to personally thank all of the area businesses I have dealt with for making this year so rewarding. I especially thank Lee Davis, Don Seehafer, and Barbara Stitt for their helpful advice. To Bill Lamberg, I give my sincere gratitude for the guidance he has offered the company over the past three years -- he will be missed. Last, but not least, to Stephanie (and he kidney), my parents, Zumunda and Phil, thank you for your unconditional love and support.

To all Quincers, old and new, and all those who have let the magic into their hearts, may your dreams never die.

Melissa Lynn Brunner

Directors' Note from the program
Past Shows - 1992 Leader of the Pack
Good evening, Ladies and Gentlemen, and welcome to tonight's performance of "Leader of the Pack."

Tonight's performance is the product of two of the most interesting and challenging months of my life; yet with the dedication, hard work, and talent of the cast and crew, my life was made a little easier. Thank you all so very, very much.

I would like to thank the directing staff: Hilde, who I've put on the spot many times; Ann, for working from overseas (you know what I mean); Emily, for doing so much in so little time; and Debi, who was always there when I needed someone to talk to and throw ideas off of.

Also, a big thank you goes to you, the audience, for coming and supporting youth theater. Without you, there would be no Peter Quince. So sit back, relax, enjoy the show, and let yourself remember the good times you had listening to these songs.
