Special Thanks
Thank you to Heather Knechtel for sharing her expertise with us. A very special thanks to all the parents who volunteered their time chauffeuring back and forth to the many rehearsals, for supervision, helping with the snack bar, ushering, and providing snacks for the cast. A huge thanks to all who worked on set construction, sewing, ironing, touch-ups and numerous back-stage tasks too many to mention. Without the help of the whole “family” this musical could never take place.
