CEDARTOWN THEATRICAL PERFORMERS’ COMPANY COMPANY STATEMENT
In small towns across America, community theaters serve a tremendous purpose. There is no greater way to bring together diverse members of a community – persons of every age, background and belief – to work together to create living, breathing “slices of life” in the productions that represent their community. If you can act, paint, build, dance, sew, write, or sing – if you love working with others and sharing their enthusiasm – if you’re a leader, an organizer, a listener, or just eager to learn – then there is a place for you in community theater. Our goals at the Cedartown Theatrical Performers’ Company are to revive community theater in Cedartown, so that our friends, our neighbors, and most especially our young people, will have the opportunity to come together, to work together, and to create the memories that will enrich their lives for generations. We want all of Cedartown’s young people to gain the confidence that comes from having hundreds of eyes watching as they say their lines, sing their songs, and display their artistic achievements. We are proud to have formed the Cedartown Theatrical Performers’ Company, so that we can contribute to the vibrant, small-town community experience that we all enjoy in Cedartown. We look forward to working with you all, and to producing memorable productions for years to come. Charles E. Morris, Jr. – William L. Lundy, Jr. – Catharine W.

A Message from the Producers Contemplating the passage of time with our children’s theatre is both rewarding and alarming. Rewarding to see so many young and shy performers become incredibly talented actors. Alarming because eight years have passed in the blink of an eye. We have loved bringing children’s theatre to Cedartown, Georgia. The performances reflect talent. We started this theatre with high expectations: We expected our shows to be crisp, acted well, articulate, animated and excellent in every way, including props, drops, orchestra, costumes and stage sets. Mission accomplished. Our previous shows have included Treasure Island, Annie, The Sound of Music, Seussical the Musical, Disney’s Beauty and the Beast, A Christmas Carol and The Wizard of Oz. We are happy to bring you Into the Woods. All of our shows have been blessed with incredible local children. We cannot believe the talent right here in Cedartown, Georgia. The performing arts present such a great learning experience. Performing in front of hundreds and hundreds of people per show represents an incredible accomplishment. To do so well reflects dedication, determination and commitment from these young performers. These shows could not happen without the involvement of many people: Our young actors, advertisers, parents, grandparents and backstage helpers and crew. It’s a complete family affair! We thank the Cedartown City Commission for recognizing the value of children’s theatre and accommodating our requests. We thank Dawn Abney, our new Operations Manager for the auditorium, who has enthusiastically embraced our shows. Tucker Casey of Casey’s Food Store, a locally owned and operated store for over 100 years has always supported our theatre, both financially and in person.
Our orchestra members, who practice diligently to bring you this show, we thank you from the bottom of our hearts. . The entire family at Parker and Lundy has worked hard on our show. Our paralegals, Julianna, Leila. Jesse and Brittney, and Carol Aaron, our receptionist. They wear all hats throughout the production period, and serve our clients as well as doing anything that needs doing with our children’s theatre. Catharine and I especially wish to recognize our talented children, Lee, Will, Spencer and Laura. Laura’s role as the Witch is a real stretch for her, as she is anything but. One more show we get to work with our children. Priceless. We thank God every single day for them. Our daughter, Laura, was a drama major at JSU, and had the lead in three JSU shows. We give all glory and credit to our Lord Jesus Christ, whom we serve. May God bless our great country. Thank you to everyone who helped with costumes, and with our set. A special thanks to Megan Keating Morris for all of her hard work in many areas of creating our program. Thank you to Chuck Morris for his expertise in virtually all areas of theatre. He’s a great lawyer, juvenile court judge, and law partner. Finally, we humbly thank you for buying a ticket and being here! Where would we be if you did not show up to encourage these performances? Well, we can tell you, your presence means everything to our young performers. Sit back and enjoy the show. It is a timeless story of fairy tales and our influence on children. Remember, children will listen . . .
Into the Woods is one of the most challenging productions that the Cedartown Theatrical Performers have staged. The complex music and demanding vocals have required a tremendous commitment from our performers during rehearsals all summer. I am always impressed by the level of dedication that our cast members demonstrate, and I am always happy to work with Bill and Catharine Lundy to create the opportunity for these young people to shine. This summer, our cast has been led by Lee Lundy and Will Lundy, who have taken on many responsibilities in directing and producing our shows; Brittany Harris, whose talent and skill is reflected in the choreography and character development; and Jessie Beck and Spencer Lundy, who have worked to organize rehearsals and assist our younger cast members in learning their roles. We have so many people to thank – the parents, grandparents and siblings that support our performers by bringing them to our many rehearsals. Talented musicians such as Angela McRee, Leigh Ann Lundy, Wanda Hutchins and our entire orchestra, who add so much to our productions. Cedartown’s local business owners and individuals, who purchase ads in this program, and purchase tickets to our performances. Additionally, we truly couldn’t stage these shows without the professionals at the Cedartown Performing Arts Center. Dawn Abney, David
Thompson, Neal Beeler and the entire staff are not only generous and patient hosts, but valued advisors and instructors that add tremendous support for our productions. Cedartown is so fortunate to have a performing arts center with the highest caliber technical capacity – and a professional staff capable of fully utilizing this wonderful facility. I must also thank Bill and Catherine Lundy for bringing such energy and dedication to all of our productions. Without their vision and passion, we could not sustain our efforts to expose Cedartown’s children to the performing arts. Every year, my wife Megan Keating has generously given of her artistic talent – and dozens upon dozens of hours of her time – to design our posters, flyers, tickets, t-shirts, and our show program. I am grateful to Megan for putting such a professional public “face” on our shows, with her tireless and inspiring work. I am truly blessed to have such a wonderful wife and family, and I appreciate the love and support that Megan and our son Grayson provide for me in all of my “theatrical” endeavors. Thanks for joining us for our journey Into the Woods. We hope you enjoy the show!
