KCP says ‘thanks’

Kimball Community Playhouse would like to thank everyone who attended our production of “Footloose” this past weekend, July 12-14. We were overwhelmed by the response and the attendance numbers were some of the best we’ve seen in several years. Opening night had a ticket count of 186 and the next two performances were each over 150. Those numbers don’t include the incredible number of volunteers who stepped forward this year to make the show a success and we are incredibly grateful for their support. We also owe a huge debt of gratitude to local businesses who donated their valuable time, resources and supplies to this production, including Images by Marguerite, Chickadee Tree Floral and the Tri-County News in Kimball, Vern’s Auto Repair, The Red Goat in Watkins, and Kris Nelson, Kris’s Screen Printing in South Haven.

Thank you to Kimball H.S., including the amazing custodial staff, and Kimball Community Ed. for the partnership and generosity they have shown in allowing us stage “Footloose”. Also, to Royalton H.S. for lending us a drum set. Of course, we wouldn’t have had the successful show we had without our talented cast and crew. They had a limited time frame to put this show together and they worked very hard to stage a production we can all be proud of. Finally, to the parents and families of cast and crew, we are so appreciative of the time you take out of your busy lives to bring your kids to rehearsals and shows. “Footloose” would not have happened without your patience and support!
