Be Thankful for Community Theater

Leave a comment

Today is a day to be thankful for many things. One of them is community theater and the people who work so hard to bring live theater art into our lives.

I blogged recently about how impressed Laura and I were that so many people do so much more than perform. It takes a lot of people to get a play to opening night and one of the important tasks is getting the word out about the show. Thatcher and Melita Brinton have two small daughters in the show and have generously donated signage made by their company, Signs by Tomorrow (Timonium location). We are thankful for the Brinton family.


The two-sided yard signs, one held above by Lori Chapman, are a brilliant idea.  They get information about the show into neighborhoods. We are thankful for Lori and all the others who will spend Black Friday hanging the show.


Here Laura and I are holding one of the street banners. How cool is that! I am thankful to have such a wonderful writing partner. Laura Ambler is my BBF.

Thatcher and Melita Brinton, like other parents of kids in the show, know that driving and waiting are a fact of life when you have kids interested in theatre. But they, like other parents, are doing more than just that, and I wanted people to know about their business located at 2105-B Greenspring Drive in Timonium, MD. Check out their website to see everything they do, and if you need their services, consider sending them your business. The Brinton’s can be contacted at or by phone at 410-252-8235.

I am thankful for Liberty Showcase Theatre and it’s production of our play, The Santa Diaries.

Performances dates are as follows: Friday, December 6th and 13th at 8PM; Saturday, December 7th at 2PM and 8PM; Saturday, December 14th at 8PM and Sunday, December 15th at 2PM.

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone.
