Pull-Tight’s 50th Anniversary celebration continues with the roll-out on December 1st of the opportunity to become a “Pull-Tight Special Patron” and receive commemorative gifts as our thanks for your support during our golden year.  The roll-out comes just in time for Christmas and these items will make wonderful presents for anyone interested in our theatre.

Among those items is a copy of our documentary “Pull-Tight Players: 50 Years a Treasure” by filmmaker Tom Gregg.  This film was premiered at our 50th Anniversary Open House in July and the opportunity to obtain copies has been eagerly awaited.  Also included on the DVD are 28 oral history interviews with Pull-Tight members sharing their own reminiscences of Pull-Tight’s past.  For more about this video project, click HERE.

Other gift items will include 50th Anniversary window stickers and decals, and patrons will also have the opportunity to order t-shirts separately.  All of these items have been requested by our membership, so we are very excited to get this promotion up and running.

Many thanks to Director Daryle Tallent and her cast and crew for bringing us Lend Me a Tenor in October.  It was a high-energy, hilarious show expertly brought to life by her team, and audiences thoroughly enjoyed it.

Director JK Gregg and her cast and crew are currently putting the finishing touches on A Christmas Carol: Live Radio Play, a different twist on the beloved Dickens classic.  This show is sure to sell out fast, so make sure to get your tickets here.

Our Youth Guild had the opportunity this fall to appear in an electric company commercial.  It was a truly unique learning experience.  Thanks to Peggy Macpherson for coordinating the event, and to Pull-Tight youth Elena Hall, Nolan Wilson, Jolon Watson, Jake Rybczyk, Maddie Logan, Raymond Cruz, Esme Watson, Justin Tholen, and Alec Tassey for participating.

We had a wonderful occasion of fellowship and business at our Artist Membership Meeting in October at the home of Beth and Woody Woodruff, with good attendance despite some pretty awful weather.  As a community outreach, Beth and Woody drove over to the local firehouse immediately afterwards and brought the firemen the leftovers from the feast.

Make plans now to attend our Pull-Tight Christmas Party on December 16th!  See details here and we will see you there!

Thank you to all who support our theatre, and I wish you joy, warmth, safety, and love this holiday season.

–Pat Street, President
Pull-Tight Board of Directors
