I’ve had this letter floating around in my head since the Kootenai Karacters wrapped production of Dan Goggins’ “Nunsense,” performed with special permission from Samuel French back in March.
This community is amazing in its support for the performing arts. We raised enough money to give two $500 scholarships to two very deserving Libby High School 2018 graduates. The recipients were Laurynn Lauer, who will be attending the University of Idaho, and Logan Christensen, who will be attending Carroll College. We also gave $250 to the Libby Children’s Select Choir.
We had great attendance at our crazy shows, with some people even coming two or three times. And the businesses that advertised in our programs made it possible for us to pay all the bills to put on the show.
We are just ever so grateful to all of you — and of course the Libby Public Schools, who let us use the incredible and cozy venue at the Central School Administration Building, the K.W. Maki Theatre.
Well, we are at it again. We have been rehearsing for this year’s Nordicfest melodrama, “Granny Smyth Goes to Washington...or, She was the Apple of His Pie,” by Sue Rae, produced by special arrangement with Pioneer Drama Service of Englewood, Colorado. We will be performing 7 p.m. Thursday, Friday and Saturday, Sept. 6-8, 2018, at the K.W. Maki Theatre.
I hope you can come join us for some fun and help us raise money for our scholarships for next year’s graduating Libby High School seniors involved in the performing arts.
