Thank you, Friends of Will, for another season of professional, dedicated and enthusiastic support of the Great River Shakespeare Festival, its company members and Festival patrons.

Collectively, you have given thousands of hours of time to the Festival.   You have welcome and assisted over 10,000 theater visitors, fed and housed company members, delivered housing supplies, distributed brochures, helped with Will Run, and helped with projects in the Festival Office.  You contributed financially by filling your cars with gas to transport company member’s from/to airports or deliver promotional materials,  housing company members, and by purchasing and cooking food.

Your contributions are recognized and appreciated in many ways including closing ceremony recognition from the stage and this note from Company member Melissa Maxwell.
