Thanks to everyone who came out Saturday night for the Season Finale Party. I’m proud to say goodbye to our regular season and to my term as Artistic Director (my attempted coup de tat failed miserably) in such style. In all seriousness, it has been such an honor serving as the Artistic Director for this organization over the past year. I think—as our celebration Saturday night showed, in part—we are a dynamic organization of incredible talented and inspired artists capable of so much. I want to congratulate the cast, crew, and team of Tigers Be Still for a fantastic run and thank everyone who came out to see that production and all of our productions over this past season. I also want to thank the incredible board of 2011-2012. Without your commitment, your innovation, and—literally—your blood, sweat, and tears, we would not have been able to have the fantastic seasons that we’ve enjoyed this past year. I also want to challenge the next generation of artists committed to making student theater at Williams to be brave: write the play that you’ve had the idea for, come up with the project no one’s imagined, think about each other and make work that speaks to your fellows, try something fast, try something slow, try it again and never settle. I’ll end the way I began my work as AD, asserting the firm belief that making theater together creates strong and lasting friendships and powerful artistic commitments that will stay with us long after our four years at Williams.
