As Live Oak Theatre wraps up its seventh season, I would like to thank everyone who has made this the most successful season yet! This past year featured two favorite classics – opening with an original production of the musical, Peter Pan which was followed with Christmas on Main Street and the Merry Medieval Madrigal Dinner; and wrapping up with the wonderful Wizard of Oz. And how wonderful it was! This was, by far, our best production yet – with nearly all shows completely sold out!
The success of the Wizard of Oz and the season would not have been possible without the support of the community and our sponsors. I am thankful and humbled by the record numbers of supporters of the arts who came to watch the shows, as well as the tremendous amount of support we received through the business community. In fact, the list of our supporters and sponsors is so large, I just don’t have the space here to thank you all individually. But we appreciate you all!
However, I would like to give a special “Thank you!” to Faith Evangelical Presbyterian Church, which generously hosted our very first Preview Gala back in 2010 and has provided Live Oak Theatre a home since 2013. Through the support of the Faith parish, Live Oak Theatre has been able to flourish and grow into a fantastic nonprofit, family-friendly theater group that continues to produce quality shows in eastern Hernando County.
This past season truly allowed us to see how truly blessed the Live Oak family is. We have wonderful friends and supporters, and we love you all. Thank you so much for a great year!
