February 23 – “Success is seldom an accident or an incident; it's the result.”

What a beautiful sight we had on Monday when we got out of bed – SNOW was wonderful.

The Waterworks Players spring show is scheduled to be South Pacific, the beloved Richard Rogers and Oscar Hammerstein musical. Due to the large cast and technical help, we are hosting a brief general interest meeting on Sunday evening, February 26, at 7:30 p.m. to discuss the production for anyone interested in participating. There are both male and female singing lead parts, in addition too many chorus roles. In total a cast of about 20 singers and dancers is needed, ages 18 and up. In addition, we need a number of stage hands to assist during technical week rehearsals and the four public performances.
