Letter from the President – A Scene In Between


Actors' Theatre A Scene in BetweenAs you’ve already read in our newsletter, we continue to stay true to our mission with our next production, Frozen by Bryony Lavery.  The cast of Frozen includes familiar faces to Actors’: Kitty Carpenter, Rebecca Monterusso and Ralph Lister. We are also happy to welcome new to our stage, Steve VanderZee. Be sure and check out the interview with the director and some of the cast members, here.

Don’t forget – “A Scene in Between”, our partnership with Schuler Books Downtown, continues on Monday December 7th at 6pm.  Replacing our Friday Night Talkbacks, this is an opportunity to speak with the director and casts of Actors’ shows and learn more about the process and the plays.  Those who joined us for the Scene in Between for TopDog/Underdog in September can tell you that it is a fascinating look behind the play. The evening is appropriate if you have already seen the play, are just considering, or if you just want to come down and see what we are all about!

We invite you to join us at Schuler Books Downtown 40 Fountain St. NW on Monday December 7th at 6pm.  As an added incentive, the Café now serves beer and wine.  So, come grab a glass of wine and join us for a wonderful discussion!

I encourage you to read Managing Director Kyle Dutkiewicz’s letter in this issue of the newsletter.  As everyone knows, these are hard times for nonprofit organizations in Michigan.  In fact,we’ll even take your spare change!  Look for our “Mr. Peanut” change jar in the lobby.  Lighten your load by depositing that heavy change into the jar.

Finally, always keep in mind:  What would Grand Rapids be without Actors’ Theatre-The Off-Broadway of Grand Rapids?

Thank you so much for your continuing support.
Lisa Baars
President of the Board
Actors’ Theatre
