Thank You to all that came to see

the 72nd Revival of "The Old Homestead"

To put on "The Old Homestead" takes a tremendous effort. I would like to thank all the actors and their families as I know it takes time away from your family to be able to attend the nightly rehearsals for five weeks. Thanks go to the Stage crew for all you do to keep the show on track. Thanks to the sound and light crew for without you we would not be seen or heard. Thanks to the makeup crew and costume crew for your help to get us ready for the show. Thank you to Victoria for our oxen, Jesse, James and Bright. Thanks to the Swanzey Lions Club for manning our refreshment stand. Thank you to all that brought food for the cast on those nights when we didn't have time to eat at home.

And so we close the page on another year in Swanzey at "The Old Homestead". We know that some of you will be coming back again and others will be following a different path in life next year. But we will always have the memories of what was a wonderful time here in the heart of Old New England. So thank you one and all for breathing life into Joshua, Matilda, Eb and Rickety, Cy and Seth, Henry, Happy Jack and all of the rest of the characters we have come to know and love through the years.

Your President and Uncle Josh,

Lee Dunham
