D I R E C TO R ’ S N O T E S I love a good mystery. Good mysteries should keep you guessing, rather than making it clear who was at fault. They should not make it impossible to figure out, but leave you enough clues amongst the red herrings to be able to reasonably deduce “whodunit.” To complicate matters, add a healthy dose of love triangles, dead bodies, and a room full of people who have motives, and things really get out of control. My hope is that you have an enjoyable evening as you try to figure the mystery out alongside Mrs. Piper and Detective Baxter. As you do, keep in mind the wise words of Inspector Clouseau in the film A Shot in the Dark: “I believe everything and I believe nothing. I suspect everyone and I suspect no one.” Dustin J. Martin Director

SPOTLIGHT ON THE BOARD OF DIRECTORS This WCT season you have experienced the full range of human emotions, the comfort of blue grass gospel, the thrill of the mysterious, the adventure of romance, the awe of human miracles, and the heartthrob of separation, survival, and dreams unfulfilled. So how do we close a season such as this? With a good hearty laugh! At one time or another we have met someone who seems to know everything about everyone, and described them as a busybody. However you haven’t really met a busybody until you meet Mrs. Piper. Our final show, Busybody, is definitely a mystery but I guarantee you’ll laugh with every twist and turn of the investigation. Throughout this season many a patron has told me this is the best season ever. Now I’m asking you to make the 2012-2013 season even better by helping us fill every seat in the house. No review, no poster, no mailing, not even our outstanding website or new Calendar Season Brochure can do as good a job of promoting what we do as you who have experienced our great productions. As you leave tonight, pick-up several of the 2012-2013 Calendar Season Brochures to pass along to friends and tell them about the wonderful shows you saw this year. Oh…and make sure you hang that WCT Calendar where it will always remind you of all the great things you want to see at WCT. Jean A. Novy Board Director
