On behalf of the Board of Directors of the Macon County Community Foundation, I would like to take this opportunity to thank all of you that attended, contributed, and/or “acted out” to make our most recent Mystery Dinner Theater – “Mother Goose’s Grim Tales” a tremendous success.
To all of you that attended, THANK YOU. Your generosity always makes the fund raiser successful, but, your audience participation certainly helps to ‘loosen’ up the characters –– by Saturday night, probably looser than we should be. We hope that you enjoyed it as much as we did.
A special thank you to:
Chuck and Judy St. John, for the use of Fat Buddies Ribs and BBQ, and the superb wait/cook staff provided,
Tim Hubbs, as the newest dwarf “Sexy”, Debbie Roberts as “Goldilocks”, Derek Roland as “Rumplestiltskin” our detective, Billi Black as “Old Woman who Lives in a Shoe”, Betsey Gooder as “Lil Bo Peep”, Sara Collins as “White Sheep”, Terri Stenger as “Director, Procter, Set Designer, and Little Miss Muffit”, and Mayor Joe Collins as “Jack”.
North Carolina Community Foundation liaison, Sue LeLievre as “Jill”, and participating Board Members:
Larry Stenger as “Blind Mouse/Black Sheep”, Milam Beasley as “Jack Be Nimble”, Becky Beasley as “Little Girl with the Curl”, Theresa Ramsey as “The Wicked Witch”, Jeff Cloer as “Old King Cole”, Regina Lupoli as “Snow White”, Karen Kenney as “Little Red Riding Hood”, Jim Breedlove as “The Big, Bad Wolf”, Michele Hubbs as “Mary, Mary Quite Contrary”, Louise Henry as “Mother Goose” and Karen Stiwinter as our “Host and Emcee”. Your countless ‘minutes’ of script memorizing really paid off – you all did a terrific job.
Special congratulations to Sheriff Robby Holland! As long as Derek doesn’t read this, we were all very happy to have missed you.
Don’t miss out for next year. Mark your calendars for February 22-24, 2013 (tentative—subject to change) for next year’s “production”.
Again, on behalf of the entire Board, I thank you all.
