To The Daily Sun,
The 2016 season ended on a high note this past weekend at the Interlakes Summer Theatre in Meredith with sold out performances of "Footloose." And what a show it was!
The cast was outstanding, including my two personal favorites: Mikey LoBalsamo and Emma Flynn. The music had the audience rocking and rolling, and the finale had the entire building shaking. A great night of musical theater in the heart of the Lakes Region.
The season unfortunately has come to an end, but what a spectacular year it was. From "Patsy Cline" to "The Producers," "9 to 5" to "My Fair Lady" and culminating with "Footloose," it was a season of outstanding musical theater for the entire family.
Thanks go out to the talented cast and crew of ILST for their outstanding work, to the musicians and all the background people who keep the theater running so smoothly each week, and most especially to the executive producer, usher, answer the phone, performer and do just about anything to bring these spectacular shows to Meredith, Nancy Barry. She does everything that needs to be done tirelessly and willingly on behalf of ILST, and always with a smile.
Of course, with the ending of the 2016 season, we turn the page to 2017. And what a season it looks to be. The 10th Anniversary Year of the Interlakes Summer Theatre will feature four shows, the beautiful music and serenity of "The Sound of Music," the hand clapping and foot stomping of "All Shook Up," the comedy, dancing and joy of "Mamma Mia," featuring the outstanding music of Abba, and the musical celebration of "Gypsy." An outstanding lineup of musical theater situated in what will be the newly-refurbished auditorium at Inter-Lakes High School in Meredith.
You don't want to miss any of these shows. How about a season pass for next year? It makes a sensational birthday, anniversary or holiday gift, and you'll be thanked for your thoughtfulness at the time you make the gift along with thanks throughout the summer of 2017. You can't lose on that idea. Or you can do as my wife and I have done — we've already renewed our season pass. And if you purchase a season pass before Sept. 30, you'll receive free tickets — that's right, free tickets — as a thank-you. But don't listen to me. Just go to interlakestheatre.com for all the details.
Don't wait too long before you visit that site and secure your season pass. The 2017 season looks to be spectacular! Join us at Interlakes Summer Theatre in 2017. You'll be glad you did.
