On behalf of the Executive Board and Founding Committee of the West Hudson Arts and Theater Company (W.H.A.T.), I would like to take this opportunity to say thank you for a spectacular inaugural season!
It is hard to believe that only a few short months ago our small group of arts-minded residents and business people with a mutual goal of bringing live theater back to our community began this journey. Since that time we have produced two plays, a children’s performance, a musical, enjoyed several sold out nights along the way, and even launched our first youth theater education program!
How could we possibly thank everyone who made this possible? We have so many talented, hard-working, dedicated people that it is almost impossible to put our gratitude into words.
All we can say to that committee, all our volunteers, our actors and actresses, civic groups and sponsors – is simply, thank you. Each and every one of you had a hand in helping us begin “acting on our dreams.”
W.H.A.T. is growing into a wonderful, caring, passionate family who are truly committed to bringing our community entertaining, thoughtprovoking theater to audiences of all ages. I am quite frankly overwhelmed by how much we have grown and what we have accomplished in such a short time.
Our biggest thank you, however, must certainly be to our audiences. W.H.A.T. is demonstrating that West Hudson is ready, willing and able to embrace quality community theater. We are truly thankful for all the support we have had fostering this artistic pursuit. By attending our shows and donating to W.H.A.T. you have helped us begin to reach our goals.
As we look to our second season, we hope that support will continue. Please visit www.whatco.org, like us on FaceBook and sign up to receive our newsletter to stay in touch and find out ways you can get involved.
Keep an eye out for news on our 2012-2013 season announcement when we will present another amazing season of theater in West Hudson with such productions as “Steel Magnolias,” a return of “It’s A Wonderful Life: A Live Radio Play, “Stuart Little” and our spring musical “Godspell.”
Thank you once again for your support. We live in an awesome community!
Sincerely, Gerald Ficeto, President
West Hudson Arts and Theater Company
