I am consistently impressed with this organization. Under the astute leadership of Artistic Director, Jim Kleinmann, PleayGround continues to strengthen existing programs and develop new ways to showcase the work of our playwrights. A highlight of the year is getting a group of friends together to attend the annual Best of... Festival. And this year's newest program, the Film Festival, was great a tremendous addition. I am honored to serve on the board and look forward to continued growth and amazing work.
