Anything can happen if you let it. —Mary Poppins

Answers to the talkback at last weekend's play:

"I enjoyed Tawny's story about trying to find fulfillment through shopping and hair."

"I have invited strangers to my home. One of my life goals is to have a warm and welcoming home, so it's a valuable part of my worldview and identify."?

"We don't see homelessness in Emmet County, but that doesn't mean it isn't there."?

"I?think community dinners would be a fantastic way to bring people together and maybe things get better."

"I think there are a lot of people who want to get involved and don't know how."?

These are just some of the responses we received, mostly in writing on the page included in the program for audience response.

With a lot going on the first weekend in March, and challenges with publicity while in rehearsal, and the director moving to Wyoming halfway through, the turnout wasn't stellar. However, the people who did attend truly enjoyed the show, or so they said (except for my sister-in-law who lives in another county, but that's a story for another time and place, or perhaps not in this space).

The point is, we did it. With a lot of elements down to the wire, we put on a show, and we raised funds for community dinners. We couldn't have done it without the students earning purple cord hours. Altogether, we generated nearly 100 purple cord hours.

If you see the cast members around town, I hope you will ask them about it.

Next up:?going for an Iowa Arts Fellowship to do more.
