Valley Viewpoints: A home run

Talented young people prevailed this past week on stage with the production of “Damn Yankees” by the Quirk Players.

Counting the 23 cast members, 38 in the ensemble, 19 in the orchestra, a production staff of over 100 individuals — including students, teachers, parents, technicians, sponsors and friends of the theater — all played an integral part in a most successful production.

The audience at the Saturday matinee that we attended with our seven-year-old grandson Kaden was most receptive to the dialogue, songs and dances done so well.

We truly appreciate all the hard work and dedication of everyone that continue to provide our community with a showcase to display our talented, outstanding youth.

In addition to their performance, the Players had to raise funds to offset a reduction in available funding so the show could go on. A special thank you to directors Tom Briggs, Tom Nami, Rob Lescarbeau and choreographer Doreen Forbes.

Sunday, we attended the Fulton Art Association’s High School Invitational Art and Photography Show, which was held at the Community Room at City Hall.
