Embracing the wacky, wonderful world of Truckee Follies

Coming off my Follies experience, I can’t help but reflect on the gamut of good feelings still coursing through my soul. When I say, “it’s about the people,” I really do mean it! Do we adore the fact that audiences come to have light-hearted escape at the expense of public officials, town luminaries, merchants, and the town itself? You bet-cha!

But ain’t no-place like this … and we all know it! Truckee is very special. The more profoundly one dips into this pueblo the more encompassing the “hug” becomes.

Kudos to all those who check their “introvert” at the door for the greater good of camaraderie, entertainment, laughter and purpose.

“Thank youze” to the awesome threesome of Team Schaller and Clarin. Aimee, you know how I feel about you! Kane, talent, great-looks and heart. Mitch, what can be said about Mitch Clarin that hasn’t been screamed, I mean said (!) so many times before? (LOL you know I adore you!) A sincere thanks for all your hard work.

And I would be completely remiss if I didn’t acknowledge Shanda, Ashley and Karin, without whom my tresses would not have been “teased up to Jesus!”

They say, “strangers are simply friends you haven’t met yet.”

I agree.

On behalf of us all, thank you everybody for a terrific production.

With great admiration,
