I would like to thank the board and staff of Oak Park Festival Theatre for their presentation to me of the Marion Karczmar Award at their March 3 brunch. It meant so much to me. The award recognized my work during the 23 years I was a member of the board and particularly my eight years as president. I especially enjoyed Jack Hickey's remarks about how I had spearheaded the theater moving from a single Shakespeare production to year-round presentations of classics from many periods.
Thank you also to everyone who attended the March 3 fundraiser, whether to support me or the theater. The preview of this year's season left all of us looking forward to seeing more.
