Jan at the Theatre reports:
San Juan Community Theatre Open House March 21: The San Juan Community Theatre opens its doors to the public Saturday, March 21 from 1:00 to 3:00 p.m., as staff and friends say “good-bye” to one production manager and “welcome” to the next.
Don Mclaskey had overseen the technical aspects of every event, organized volunteers, designed lighting and sets and helped maintain the facilities for some three years. He resigned earlier in the year and, after 35 years on the island, will be moving off-island this spring with his wife, Susan.
Steve Judson, a 40-year veteran of theater production (including 18 years with the San Diego Ballet), joined SJCT in January after moving back to the island. He’d lived in Friday Harbor a few years ago and volunteered at the Theatre for several productions where staff and other volunteers were impressed with his expertise and organization.
“The production manager is a very integral, important role at the Theatre,” said Executive Director Merritt Olsen. “We are lucky to have had Don here and are now fortunate that Steve is part of the team.”
The free open house will include refreshments and desserts plus surprise entertainment. An R.S.V.P. is preferred; please call 378‑3211, ext. 23
