Dear Yorkshire Playhouse Members,
This has been a great year for the Yorkshire Playhouse, we have put on 6 wonderful productions, everything from comedy to Christmas, and the support from our members has been amazing. Our hardworking volunteers put in countless hours of work and effort because they love the thrill of telling stories, building sets that transport people to places of their imagination, and let people laugh and cry with people that they will never have the chance to meet in the course of their life.
This year we have been blessed with many new actors and volunteers from all over the area, including many of the area schools; and a few who came back to the stage after being away from it for 30 or 40 years. The magic of theater keeps people coming back—whether in the seats or on the stage—because the collaborative spirit that grows from the work and the laughs and tears is something that is exceedingly hard to find in today’s world that seems to be viewed through a screen. On the stage are real people, people that you can reach out and touch; the energy that comes from an engaged audience laughing, clapping, and crying—those are things that cannot be replicated sitting in front of a screen.
On May 10, the Yorkshire Playhouse will hold our annual meeting at 7:00 pm. at the theater to elect 5 people to the Board of Directors. These are the people whom our members entrust with running the day to day operations of the theater; but also these are the people who we want to help make this theater a place that this community can be proud of. A place where people can come together with friends both old and new and create something that they are proud to present to our members and all of central Nebraska.
There are big things in the works this year, and we would like to invite everyone to join us for another great year!
President, Board of Directors
