Dear Editor:On behalf of Thunder River Theatre Co., I want to thank everyone in the Waldorf School on the Roaring Fork, staff, students and parents. A huge thank you is necessary.For our rental fee, we received more than space use, we received a warm welcome, hands-on help, kindness and a sincere graciousness. All of us from our board to the guild to our production team felt at home.The thoughtfulness and consideration of the Waldorf philosophy was shared with us. They came to see “Seascape” and brought friends. Many people who had never been to the school marveled at its architecture, beauty and good feelings. Everyone enjoyed seeing the theatre transformed in our TRTC way.Having our audience attend a play in their theatre foreshadowed the feeling I am sure TRTC will have in our new theatre. It allowed us to share our aesthetic values in a beautiful venue. It was easy to treat the facility with love and respect, because it was clear that everyone in the Waldorf community does.TRTC doesn’t normally single out people in a thank you for fear of leaving someone out, but I must acknowledge three people … Tim Connolly, Bob Schultz and Doug Sheffer, all of whom helped us make “Seascape” the success that it was. Their generosity of spirit was simply staggering. All of us in TRTC feel as though we have made some very special friends.Lon Winstonfounding artistic directorThunder River Theatre Co.
