Peter Meldrum • 1947-2018 • Pete and his wife Cathie began attending shows at Pioneer Theatre Company together when they were students at the University of Utah, a habit they continued for almost fifty years. In 2000, Pete joined the theatre’s Board of Trustees, becoming chairman in 2007. Under his leadership, the theatre was able to achieve many successes, including the creation of Meldrum House, PTC’s guest artist housing, which is regarded as one of the finest artist housing buildings in the American regional theatre. Pete was a passionate lover of theatre, an intellectually curious person, and a generous patron. He will be deeply missed by all who knew him.

We send our deepest condolences to his family, friends and colleagues.

DIRECTOR'S NOTE

A

few years ago, I attended a production of As You Like It, produced by the Public Theatre as part of their Public Works initiative. While I vividly remember the colorful costumes, beautiful music, and moving performances on a perfect summer night in New York City’s Central Park, it was Artistic Director Oskar Eustis’ curtain speech that, perhaps, stuck with me the most. As a bit of background, Public Works brings together professional artists and community members to make plays together. This initiative, based in the beliefs that culture belongs to everyone and that theatre is a cornerstone of a healthy democracy, empowers people who are typically spectators to be creators. In explaining this, Eustis simply said, “We all have an artist within us.” Some of us spend our lives accessing that part of ourselves, and some might only tap into it for a month, a week, or even a day. But regardless of whether it’s a living, a hobby or just a fleeting moment, we all share this capacity as an essential part of the human experience. I think about this artistic philosophy when I think of Once. As much as I am moved by the bittersweet love story at the center of this stunning musical, I am inspired by the sense of community that is developed around the simple goal of making beautiful art together. This is not only exemplified by the work of the ensemble, but also by the journeys of the individual characters they play. All of the characters, like all of us, are striving for something: looking to fill a void, mourn a loss or realize a dream. The act of making music is an act of community, vulnerability and courage. Through accessing the artists within themselves, the characters each shatter their own sense of isolation, truly see one another, and live. I hope you enjoy the show as much as we’ve enjoyed making it for you. Pirronne Yousefzadeh, Director
