MPI MEMBERSHIP HOLIDAY PARTY SATURDAY, DECEMBER 9th Thank You to THE WISDOM OF EVE Cast, Crew, and MPI -  Dee Anne Bryll  The Wisdom of Eve was a dream project!! Every time I drove to rehearsal and turned down Walton Creek and saw the beautiful theater, I thought to myself “How Lucky am I!” As I sit and write my thank you, I am reminded of a quote from Jason Robert Brown, “What’s great about collaborating is getting to work with wonderful people. That’s what theatre is all about....” I could never have done this project without the help of my amazing production team headed by my good friend, producer Tom Storey. The creativity, outstanding work, and dedication of Dan Dermody, Beth and Brian Boland, Peggy Kenney, Ed Cohen, Chris Cullen, Bill Pauly, Jenna Pauly, and Art Kibby allowed us to tell the story in an interesting and theatrical way. Many thanks to Liz Venn, Alex, Nick & Timothy Boland, jef Brown, Michael Gettinger, Wayne Kirsch, Pat Kramer, Michael Sauer, Arny Stoller, Tom Peters, Teresa Johns, Dan Maloney, Kenneth Smith, Steve Farley, and Kim Woods for their work on the production. A big thank you to Betsy Farro for her support, her smiles, and exceptional work with the Mariemont patrons. Steve Winslow...

Open House for Chairman Club Donors

On August 27 MPI hosted an Open House for Chairman Club Donors to see the renovated theatre. Over 80 guests enjoyed a beautiful array of food and drink. Many thanks to Noreen Sauer for catering the event and to her son, Michael, and his friend Alex Griffin for assisting her. A champagne toast saluted our 400 donors and the Chairman Club Committee Members (Michael Sauer, Chair, Art Kibby, Norma Niinemets, Bill Pauly and Chessie Vigran.) The fund drive raised over $54,000. The guests were then invited to visit the theatre and enjoy the new seats and the beautiful renovation. Only oohs and ahhs were audible. Many thanks to Art Kibby and Bill Pauly, for explaining to the audience all the work that has been done on the theatre and introducing the newly installed Hearing Loop Enhancement System. A Big Round of Applause for Betsy Farro and the wonderful and tedious job of seating our subscribers in the new chair configuration. Not an easy puzzle to complete but she did it and she did it well! Congratulations Arny Stoller Arny Stoller was the inductee to the OCTA Hall of Fame at the Labor Day Weekend OCTA Event in Columbus, Ohio. This was certainly a well deserved recognition.
