Friends of DramaTech is the alumni association for DramaTech Theater. Our goal is to support the student members financially, professionally, and socially so that they can further the theater’s mission.
Perhaps the most disruptive year in any of our lifetimes is coming to a close, and I think many of us are looking forward to a new year full of vaccines and actually speaking to the new neighbors (instead of just dropping a plate of welcome-to-the-neighborhood cookies on their front porch, ringing the bell, and then running for your life).
But amidst the chaos of a year undoubtedly caused by a series of time travelers trying to incrementally make the year less disaster-prone, and inadvertently making it progressively more nonsensical, we do want to share good news for FoDT and the theatre.
This year I am thankful for the fact that more than 130 of you open this newsletter each month and read my ramblings. I am also thankful for my fellow Board members, for my committee chairs, for the members of each committee, and for your unwavering support for the students of DramaTech Theatre. And for grocery delivery services - those came in clutch in 2020.
As we reflect on all that we are grateful for this year, I hope you will consider giving back to the theatre we all love - either through a tax-deductible donation to the scholarship fund, or through a little bit of your time.
Happy Spooky (or Spoopy, if you will) Season everyone! Let’s be real: is there any holiday more beloved for members of the theatre world than Halloween? I mean, it’s a day in which you’re supposed to dress up and be a character (rather than those other days when we dress up without an excuse and just get strange looks for doing so…).
I want to give a huge shout out to Savannah Cookson and Katie Zimmerman for putting together another fabulous alumni happy hour - the Board and I are incredibly grateful for all the work Savannah and Katie have put into making these happy hours so much fun for everyone who has attended!
