  • Thank you so much for your kind words regarding "On Golden Pond". I couldn't agree about the quality of the production more. So much hard work goes into these productions and I think it is important to let these actors and backstage workers know that their time has been well spent. I can empathize about not wanting to go, however. We all have so many obligations and places to be these days that it is hard to stop for a moment and just go somewhere for the fun of it. But every time I make a trip to "The Fly", I am always so glad I mustered up the energy. There is no feeling like the gathering of people sharing a laugh or a tear. And each play I have seen at "The Fly" has been something special. My hopes would be that someone else will read your comments and come experience the play for themselves. It won't disappoint!

    Thank you for taking time to read and comment. And yes, "The Fly" is a wonderful experience that's sure not to disappoint. I hope those who have never had the experience will make time to attend an event at least once.

    Just a reminder to all, "On Golden Pond" has one final showing at The Fly tomorrow--Friday, Oct. 2nd at 7:00pm. Let's show these dedicated folks how much we appreciate their selfless dedication and hard work...I hope it's a full house!

  • Shawna..........Nice piece......I have been in a few plays at the Fly, even directed one. Lots of work but enjoyable....Please don't tell my detracter on here as they will have one more inane reason to throw rocks at me.

  • Carl--

    I promise not to tell on you. I've invested in a suit of armor, myself. Would you like me to get you one...it works great to deflect the blow of the rocks (he, he, jk).

    Seriously, I think it's wonderful that there are didicated people, such as yourself, who are willing to give of their time in order to entertain the rest of us.

    I'm sure The Fly could use more volunteers if anyone out there is willing to spare just a little time and effort. For more information call Janice Cole at 703-7613 or 931-684-8359.
