A Lovely Note…

October 9th, 2009


Jessie van Rijn, Carousel Theatre’s General Manager, had a very busy day last weekend.  Love You Forever opened on Saturday(we had a great party- pictures to come!) and we had three shows on Sunday.

She checked her email to find this lovely note from a Grandma in her inbox:

Hi Jessie,

My name is Gran (Cathie) and I attended your show this afternoon with Grampa (Jim) and our two beautiful granddaughters, Reese and Sloane. We all LOVED IT and can’t wait for the other 2 shows we have tickets for. I can’t read LOVE YOU FOREVER to our girls without crying and of course you brought tears to my eyes this afternoon with the tender way that you handled that particular story. The set was fantastic, the acting was perfect and I would say that all of the technical aspects were handled with professionalism from my point of view. Thank you for opening up a new art form for us to display to our granddaughters. You are exposing all those young kids to theatre and with that creativity, imagination, make-believe, dress-up……becoming a writer, an actor, a designer, a technician WHATEVER!!

PS. Melissa [Oei], I don’t know if you are a MOTHER yet but you made me laugh until I cried with your portrayal of Mortimer’s Mother.
