30th Season Milestones
by David Hennessey
Scott and Stela read Love Letters to start
A notable year. Then others joined hearts
’Neath Salt-Water Moon.
Thereafter, we soon
Met three unsung women who learned to chart
Faraway stars: staring up at the night
We bathed, awestruck, in swirling points of light!
A fun change of pace
Brought the cut-throat chase
Of kids seeking spelling trophies. The sight,
In Clean House, of messes we can’t control—
Including sickness that will not let go—
Taught us gently how
To live in the now.
After years of writing, with heart and soul,
His masterful Dracula, Scotty thrilled
As we staged it with full suspense and chills.
He basked in the glow of visions fulfilled.
When the day finally came he had to leave,
We celebrated him more than we grieved.
Our last show slated
To A Wonderful Life the heavens retrieved.
That Dracula script? It’s now winging high
In our lobby, soaring to Silent Sky.
