Wow, it’s been a really busy last few months! We’ve wrapped up the 2010-11 Concert Series and are now keeping our fingers crossed while waiting for grant funding notifications. Please keep yours crossed, too, if you don’t mind! Gail Haught and I went to the WV State Drama Festival in Morgantown and directed the 2 winning playwriting contest plays. Those kids are SO talented. We had lots of input from the 2 playwrights and the actors put together 2 great plays in about 48 hours. And a few of them had some pretty hefty monologues.

The  Lincoln Theater Restoration Council and the Wayward Players are presenting the musical Godspell in May. Performances are scheduled for Thursday, May 5, through Saturday, May 7 at 7:30 and Sunday, May 8 at 3:00. A second weekend of performances will be held Thursday, May 12 through Sunday, May 15 at the same times. Tickets can be purchased at the New Martinsville City Building Monday through Friday from 8:00am until 4:30pm. Reserved seat tickets are $12 and General Admission seats are available for $10. Group rates for 10 or more people are available for the Thursday performances. To celebrate the performance on Mother’s Day, there will be a $2 discount for all mothers! For further information, please call me at 304-455-2278 or Bev Gibb at 304-455-9130.

Following that, on Sunday, May 22, ArtsLink will be presenting a concert by pianist Robert Thomas at the First Christian Church in New Martinsville at 2:00. This concert will honor Fred Fonner. I can’t tell you the contribution he’s made to theater in New Martinsville. Tickets are available at the door – $10 for ArtsLink members and $15 for non-members. More information on the concert is available in our newsletter – go to the ‘news’ section of our website at www.artslinkwv.org.
