Producer's Note from the program
Past Shows - 2002 Crazy for You
I’m very proud to say that this production was completely organized by two 19-year-old girls. Now of course we had a little help, but at any rate it is an amazing fact.

Quince is a wonderful thing, it has touched many people’s lives – mine included. This is a company that gives the youth of Manitowoc County the chance to experience every aspect of theatre. It has instilled in me not only the love of theatre, but also respect.

I have had the pleasure of being a part of this company for 7 years. I want to thank my parents for putting up with all the late nights of practice and driving me to and from rehearsal all these years. I also want to thank the directing staff. At the beginning of the season I was worried because I hardly ever had to yell at people to get stuff done – I was afraid I wasn’t doing my job – Then I realized the difference was they actually did what they were supposed to do, with no pushing from me! Thank you guys for making this an amazing experience. This company has truly impacted my life and hopefully PQPC will live on so that someday, another 19-year-old girl can live her dream by producing a show.

Thank you Reed Humprey for this amazing theatre company.

Director's Note from the program
Past Shows - 2002 Crazy for You
It is an honor to welcome you to Peter Quince’s 34th season. This summer has been quite a learning experience for me as a first-time director. For instance, screaming at the top of my lungs for several hours a night hurts a lot and post people still won’t listen. Hard work hugs aren’t just for kindergartners; they’re for Kirsten and me too. Not everyone likes bunnies as much as I do. Counting on people to do their jobs doesn’t always work, but neither does stepping on their toes and doing their jobs for them.

The cast this season has taught me more than I could ever enumerate. Of course, most of it has nothing at all to do with theatre. I can only hope I gave them at least a fraction of what they’ve given me. This cast has made me feel like a mother of 40 children – I perpetually worry about them, I do as best as I can to take care of them, and I yell at them incessantly. They’ve also given me surges of pride that have (such as now) brought tears to my eyes. I have laughed harder with them, cried harder with them, and been angrier with them then I’ve ever been. They are and have been my life. Not a moment has gone by all summer when they weren’t in my mind. They are my good luck charms, the causes of my insanity, my friends, and most importantly, my family.

Thank you Mom and Dad for being there for me even though I almost never got to see you all summer. Thank you Marsha and Steve for being two of the most understanding and fun people that I know. Thank you Naomi for being… well, for being just like me. The biggest thank you is to the cast – I love you and am so incredibly proud of you. Thank you for those who have supported us in every way and (as always) enjoy the show!
