Producer's Note from the program
Past Shows - 2010 The Pajama Game
Good evening ladies and gentlemen. Thank you for coming tonight and welcome to Peter Quince Performing Company's 42nd season. I am very proud to present to you Adler and Ross' The Pajama Game. Six summers ago, when I joined this company, the thought of me being the producer never crossed my mind. I never thought I could handle such ah important and big job, but that is the beauty of Quince. It gives children the opportunity to reach for the stars and make it there. It provides them with the tools to go and do the jobs they never thought they could do. This summer has given us a lot of challenges, regime changes, rehearsal space mix-ups, but as always with Quince, there's no challenge that we aren't scrappy enough for.
There are too many people to thank that I don't know where to begin, but with all long winded Producer letters, I'll find a way, and include as many as I can. First of all, I want to thank the one man for whom, without, I would never be there. Steve Rylander was the guy who got me to audition back in 2004 for The Music Man, and I've never looked back since. Secondly, I have to thank our directing staff. A big thank you goes out to Jonah Hermann our Director, and Bethany Heili our Stage Manager, both of whom helped us out by filling the positions when all seemed lost. Thanks to our tech god John Salutz, without you our show wouldn't have any sort of lighting, and wouldn't be heard bast the front row. Thanks to Krista Stevens, and Katie Jo Shimulunas, our Choreographers, for some wonderful (but sweaty) dances. Phillip Jindra, thank you for teaching us this beautiful, but difficult music. Ben Burish, thank you for carrying us through the performances with the save of your magical conductor's "wand" (yea I'm lame like that). A huge thank you goes out to my friends and past Quincers, like Erin LaFond, Brian Schneider, Emilee Landon, and Thomas Moore, Curtis 'The Turdis' (and many, many more). Without your help, guidance, and friendship, I don't thank I would be here right now. Finally, without the support of this person, I probably would have gone mental, so a huge thank you goes out to T.C. Roberts, for the countless summer nights where you've listened to me vent about bad rehearsals, laugh about the funny ones, and shared them all with me. I couldn't have picked a better guy to finish our final year in Quince with. Thank you.
Now, sit back, relax, and enjoy this hilarious and heartfelt production of The Pajama Game.
Sincerely,
Zachary Eric Glaeser, Producer


Director's Note from the program
Past Shows - 2010 The Pajama Game
Good Evening Ladies and Gentlemen,
Welcome to Peter Quince's production of "The Pajama Game". THe true magic of theatre is alive and well as we are proud to present to you our 42nd full-length musical. Our company would not be in operation if it weren't for the generous donation from the community, and I thank all of them immensely. We must never let the arts die out, and our company has made strides in instilling the value of musical theatre to our members. Peter QUince has provided a stepping stone for many of its members to pursue a career in the in the arts. We encourage our cast to work hard towards making our show worthy of a professional stage. As director, I always pushed the cast to go above and beyond their abilities. If you ask a cast member if the long rehearsals and countless repetitions are worth it, they will respond with a resounding "Yes"! I'm sure when we ask ourselves why do we do this every summer, it is because of the tremendous feeling you get when it is finally show time.
Surely this night would not have been possible without the creative geniuses who are behind the making of the show. FIrst, I would like to thank our awesome producer Zach, who always kept everybody in check and made sure that this production was possible. Thank you to Katie Jo and Krista, the dances, makeup, and costumes make the stage come to life. Phillip, our choral director, thank you for producing such a high quality pit orchestra. John, Jon, Jeff, and Bethany, your help in the technical aspect has made the show run smoothly. Thank you to Meghan and Gabby for stepping up and taking care of properties. Thanks to the cast for your willingness to step out of your comfort zones and for making the stage light up with your bright faces! Thank you to my living parents for all that you do for me, you're awesome! I must also thank some alumni Quincers who have shared countless memories with. Thank you Scuba, Emilee, Erin, Heather, and Melyssa for making those long and sweaty rehearsals so much more enjoyable. Thank you to Jamie for giving me a chance eight years ago in "Footloose". You have inspired me greatly, and now I have made all the way from "Little Bobby" to Director. I owe my biggest thanks to my sister Gretchen, who was the reason that I became interested in theatre, and in Peter QUince. I love you and thank you for all your encouragement.
Now sit back and relax as we take you on a journey to the Sleep Tite pajama factory in Cedar Rapids, Iowa.
Yours in Quince,
Jonah Hermann, General Director
