Gordon Ellis, as the Bellhop, explaining why he needs to get a photograph of the great opera star Tito Merelli. Lend Me A Tenor opens Friday, Feb 9

Board meetings are held on the third Tuesday of the month and we remind that all members of Concord Players are invited and urged to attend.

The Hutchins
provided a delightful venue for our January board meeting, providing a great atmosphere and, by the way, delicious food and drink.  A fine way to begin the New Year!  Thanks!

The Heddie Kent Greenroom is back. A truly hardworking and dedicated crew of people showed up last Saturday to help with the moving of all the things that had been stored in the basement during construction.  There will soon be another day set aside for the remaining clean-out work that needs to be done, and we’ll keep you posted and ask your help.  Pat Kane, Katy Blair and Lori Livermore Hack are doing some shopping and research regarding new furniture for the greenroom.  As we have lost some storage space in the g.r. from the renovation.  And P.S., at “workdays” we’ll be having a raffle for two tickets to opening night of the next show!

Bill Maxwell
is finishing the painting of the greenroom and asks for volunteers to help with the project.  Please contact bill at ** if you’re willing to lend a hand.

Thanks to Middlesex Bank, who have promised a grant of $5,000.00 toward our renovation project! 

Welcome to our new costumer for Lend Me a Tenor.  Susan Yanofsky will be dressing our cast for the show.

We have some conflicts of date, personnel and funds regarding this year’s Follies.  All things considered, it was decided to cancel Follies for this year. 

…and speaking of conflicts, two of the exec. Board members are unable to attend the annual meeting on the usual date, so the Board moved to change the date for this year’s annual meeting to March 25.  Mark your calendar!

New Slate of Plays for next season!
  The committee has been diligently working on finalizing a proposed list of plays for our approval and will be presenting a slate at the next board meeting for vote.

Lillian Anderson
reports that the nominating committee is working on a proposed slate of officers for the coming year.  The committee anticipates presenting a report by March.
