Director’s Message:

Grant Carl, Director

Welcome to the 2011 production of “Dry Streak”, brought to you by the Consort Hospital Auxiliary and the Consort Players Theatre Group.  It is our 27th year of bringing entertainment to the stage, and once again our superb and dedicated cast has been hard at work to bring you this year’s show. The money raised from the Play helps to fund equipment purchases for our local hospital. At the same time, it brings so many volunteers together from Consort and the surrounding area, that you definitely get a “sense of community” when you are involved in putting on the play. Simply put, I believe that major functions such as this play, recent Consort and Community Recreation Association’s Consort Sportex Renovation Fundraisers, the annual Lions Gun and Hobby Show, and Consort’s Country Christmas are not only vital from the standpoint of the money that is raised, they are crucial to the survival of the community as a whole. So, on behalf of the cast, crew and Hospital Auxiliary members, a big THANK YOU for attending this year’s production of“Dry Streak”. [/one_half]
