My husband and I have been season ticket holders at MTWichita since the mid-seventies. During that time we have seen the theatre's productions go from sometimes awkward renderings with less capable leads to the tryly accomplished and polished productions that we look forward to each summer. While we have yet to make it to NY we have seen "Broadway" musical theatre productions in London and other locales and MTWichita need take no backseat by comparison. In fact they equal or surpass anything we've seen anywhere! For sometime it has been my privilege to serve on the Board of Directors and be privy to the day-to-day workings of this fabulous organization. In addition to presenting top flight musical theatre entertainment, its support and encouragement of up and coming local and midwestern talent is a model which all regional theatres would do well to examine. As the anticipation of the summer season begins to mount, I'm like a child at Christmas waiting to see what wonderful gifts will unfold on stage. The only sad aspect of the whole process is that the season is over all too quickly and leaving us wanting more!
