Dear Friends and Colleagues,
Welcome to our 2013-14 season, our biggest season yet! We are delighted to enter our second season of touring Sister Act, Priscilla Queen of the Desert and West Side Story, while launching new tours of Ghost, The Wizard of Oz, Evita, Bring it On: The Musical and Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat.
Launching a tour is like putting together a puzzle – the picture is not complete without each individual piece. I would like to extend a special thank you to our colleagues behind the scenes, who never get to enjoy the on-stage spotlight, but who are an integral part of the whole: the booking agents who put together the tour routes, the casting agents who present a world of possibilities, the travel agents who get the cast & crew from city to city, our marketing personnel and publicists who let the public know we’re comin’ to town, our accounting team that keep our numbers straight, the scenery and prop builders, costume, wig and shoe makers who bring the onstage worlds to life, and the truckers who haul all of their handiwork across the country. These people along with so many more!
As always, we extend our thanks to the Presenters for their support, and to the hardworking actors, musicians and crews who dazzle us all nightly.
We could not continue to grow as a company without the tremendous input of all of these individuals: our theatrical family.
See you on the road!Randall A. Buck
