For all of the volunteers who made the Ten in 10 Play Festival possible, to say thank you for all the work you have put in would not nearly be enough. Words cannot adequately illustrate just how grateful we are for all of the work that was put in by so many people.

The night was phenomenal. If there is anything that accurately reflects our feelings on the event, it was the reactions from the audience. Even in the short amount of time that has passed since the festival, we have heard many positive comments from people in the community who attended the festival and were overjoyed with the quality of the event.

For this, we hope you are all very proud and have a great feeling of satisfaction. As all of us in the world of performing arts know, we do this for the audience. As much as we want the night to be the best for us, it is ultimately the audience for which we put in the work. 

Rest assured in the knowledge that all of your hard work was received and appreciated. Please, all of you that worked on the event (directors, cast, crew, tech, and volunteers) accept our heartfelt thanks and laurels on a job well done.

Also, we would like to thank our many sponsors who made this possible. For those who donated space, goods, knowledge, and financial contributions, know that we have you to thank for our success. 

So many people and businesses in the community gave generously of themselves to see this event take place. A special thanks goes to St. Barbara for donating the performance space for the evening. 

Though we may have been able to get by with less money or less expertise, without a theater this night would not have happened. St. Barbara not only let us use their space, but made sure that we had every advantage possible to make the festival as fruitful as possible. They were the epitome of gracious hosts.

To everyone we have already named, as well as anyone else who helped on the event who we may have accidentally left off, thank you. Thank you so much for what you have done, and for what you were willing and happy to give of yourselves. You are wonderful people, and we couldn’t have asked for better people to have worked with.
