From the insert placed in the programs after opening night

Welcome to live, community theatre...

Our leading actor, Dale Hoover, has been in failing health, culminating in a heart attack after our Opening Night performance. For the balance of the run, the part of Harry Brock will be played by our director, Gary Morean. Unlike professional theatre, we here at Driftwood are all volunteers and we do not have pre-rehearsed and prepared understudies. Gary will be going on with the script. The rest of the cast has worked very hard, both before and after this acting change, and we trust you will find the show and the performances entertaining. However, if this is unsatisfactory to you, we will understand and we will gladly refund your money before the performance begins.

Longtime actor/director/friend, Rick Bates, has graciously agreed to take over the part of the Assistant Manager, which Gary is vacating.
