Talented young people prevailed this past week on stage with the production of Damn Yankees by the Quirk Players.
Counting the 23 cast members, 38 in the ensemble, 19 in the orchestra, a production staff of over 100 individuals including students, teachers, parents, technicians, sponsors and friends of the theater, all played an integral part in a most successful production.
The audience at the Saturday matinee that we attended with our 7-year-old grandson, Kaden, was most receptive to the dialogue, songs and dances done so well.
We truly appreciate all the hard work and dedication of everyone that continue to provide our community with a showcase to display our talented, outstanding youth. In addition to their performance the players had to fund raise to offset a reduction in available funds so the show could go on.
A special thank you to directors Tom Briggs, Tom Nami, Rob Lescarbeau and choreographer Doreen Forbes.
On Sunday we attended the Fulton Art Association’s High School Invitational Art and Photography Show, which was held at the Community Room at City Hall.
There were 111 entries from 89 students from Fulton, Hannibal, Oswego and Phoenix high schools.
With various methods of artistic expression the artists showcased their talents.
We would like to thank the FAA and president Kathy Mihalek for the dedication shown to the advancement of the arts.
The talent showcase this past week should serve as a reminder to all of us that the City of Fulton and neighboring communities is the home to many talented youth who we need to encourage and support.
