Kudos to all for the grand performance of ‘Trapped’ in Grand Lake

To the Editor:

The 2007 annual holiday melodrama, “Trapped in a Villain’s Web,” which was sponsored by the Grand Arts Council, is now history, and what a great week we had.

The event’s success is totally dependent on the outpouring of support from across Grand County as well as places far away. First, thanks to our enthusiastic audiences of nearly 700 cheering, booing, swooning folks. Also, many thanks to all of the businesses that bought ads for the program; your support is invaluable.

Also, we are so grateful to all of the cast members who rehearsed tirelessly and performed admirably for the six-night run: Annie Ginsberg, Robert Canon, Mark Ginsberg, Haley Olson, Jim Cervenka, Moriah Brown, Ashley North, Allaura Cox, Drew McCullough, Lew Schwerin, Lisa Tarr, Carolyn Alcorn, and Schelly Olson. These folks, as a group donated over 500 hours to the Arts Council and the community. Kudos to all; take a final bow.

Thanks go also to Never Summer in Grand Lake, Granby Mini-Mart, and the Elk Horn Art Gallery in Winter Park for help with ticket sales. Adam Weaver, Ray Hauschel, and Frank Herman, the light and sound guys, are our unsung heroes. Lauren Gompertz, Cathy Walton-Smith, and “Sky-Hi Daily News” deserve a standing ovation for producing and printing the program for us. The Village Hub donated the concession coffee every night; thanks, Tim.

We thank the huge cast of extras who sold tickets, greeted theatergoers, and supplied them with cocoa, coffee, and cookies: Tara Ingle, Bonnie Brown, Carolyn Moore, Cathy Walton-Smith, Mike Smith, Deborah McCord, Randy Carlson, Patty Weaver, the Tarr family, Vince Comello, Malene Mortenson, Jan and Ron Sears, Andrea Cox, Mike and Mandy Hanifen, Karen Raymond, Dena Sauter, and Dave and Edie Strate. We couldn’t do it without you.

Thank you, everyone, and a huge round of applause for a show well done.
