The curtain will be going down for good Spring 2015
Goodbyes can be emotional. A lifetime of memories flood the soul with the blessing of shared accomplishments, funny moments, a tearful trusting prayer, rejoicing in budgets met, “a-ha” moments, shock of surprises and occasional frustration as the joys of celebrating faith and family on stage for 12 years- 10 years of which as a 501 (c)(3), charitable organization serving southern Arizona. The Lord has certainly been faithful in blessing Waypoint Theatre Company—the little company that could… did.
The last two years have been a mixed blessing of joy, frustration and tears for me as I gave my all in support of Waypoint (my high school dream come true) while juggling the increasing challenges of caring for family and aging parents. And so, cozying up with my warm memories, cherished friendships (and some Drama Queen tissues), I prayerfully submitted my resignation from Waypoint effective December 31, 2014.
This little theatre that could…. DID. And you, dear friend, played a starring role as we “celebrated the joys of faith and family” together. Thank you so much for your prayers, financial and emotional support! — Melanie David
A Note from the Board of WTC
Following much discussion regarding the future of WTC after Melanie’s resignation, the Board of Directors decided to dissolve WTC. Alternatives were discussed. This decision was not made lightly, but ultimately dissolving was the best option. We believe it has been a joy and honor to serve our community for over a decade.
You who have supported us, laughed and cried with us, worked behind the scenes or in front, and those who have cheered us on — thank you. You were a part of the reason we did what we did. We cherish the applause and the laughter that flowed over us as we performed. We loved the fact that that we could give back to the community, knowing what we did was not out of selfish gain. So, as the talented comedienne Carol Burnett ended her show with a heartfelt song, wink and a tug on her ear … we, too, say that “we’re so glad we had this time together”. – Michael Nicolosi, Sheri Aken, Al Baumrucker, Frank Gates, Molly Norman and Sue Zepeda WTC Board
