Producer's Note from the program
Past Shows - 2006 Wonderful Town
Thank you for all joining us tonight for our 38th season's production of Wonderful Town. This has been an amazing season working with everyone. First of all, I'd like to thank Mark Quistorf and Ryan Clarksen. These gentlemen have been two of my past producers, and have taught me all that I know. I would not be where I am today without their support.

I'd like to thank Lucy and Alyssa, along with Jen and Adam, for their awesome dedication and direction. Without Cassie's choral direction, we'd be "lost for words!". Erin's fancy footwork helped save our show! I'd like to thank both of you ladies for that. Brandon, without your knolwedge of the backstage, we'd be in the dark! Thanks for all your hard work.

Last, but not least, I'd like to thank our amazing director, Kate. As the only 8-year member of the cast, we made a great team. Thanks for being an amazing sister. I love you!

Quince is an amazing experience. I was lead in 8 years ago by my brother, who also lead in his wife (Heather Bernhardt who is in tonight's performance.) No matter what generation of a "Quincer" you are, it will always be alive in your heart.

Keep the dream alive,
Emilee E. Landon.

Director's Note from the program
Past Shows - 2006 Wonderful Town
This summer has been a wonderful learning experience for me, and I hope for the rest of the company. I have had so much fun directing Wonderful Town, and only wish that we could perform it longer. As you watch our performances, please keep in mind how hard everyone has worked to make this show come together. The cast has put their heart and soul into this, and for that I am very greatfull that I could work with such a great cast. Emilee, Cassie, and Erin have been an awesome crew to work with. We may have had some hard times and some good ones, but I wouldn't have asked for a better direction staff. Emilee has been a great best friend and producer, she was always there for me to answer any questions I had, or just to listen to my frustration. Cassie has been great to work with as a cast member and as a directing staff member. She always has great ideas that she brings to rehersals, to make the show even better. Erin's incredible dancing ability has really made the show wonderful and fun to watch. She has done a great job and I'm so grateful for their sweat and tears that they have put into this show. I would like to thank my friends and family for their support. Especially my sister, for if she never would have forced me to audition for Lil' Abner seven years ago, I may have never gotten into theatre and wouldn't have this wonderful opportunity. I would also like to thank all the past directors that have influenced me and helped mold me to be the director I am today, especially Mr. Bill Hansen who has really pushed me to give my all and o my best. Without his help at Lincoln, I don't think I would have the courage to take this role as director. Again, thank you to everyone, I can't say it enough. Please sit back, relax, and enjoy Ruth and Eileen's crazy adventures in a Wonderful Town.
