Thank you so much, for yet another wonderful performance. And also for so much more than that. It's hard to express from a parent's perspective how much my son has grown these last few years. His life in the theatre - particularly, somehow, these two musical weeks you put on every summer - have given him strength and purpose and poise. We are so very grateful.
