With respect and affection, we dedicate this production to the memories of:
Kevin Grantz – As an actor, Kevin was best known for his educational portrayals of George Washington and Patrick Henry, appearing regularly in the Give Me Liberty reenactment at St. John’s Episcopal Church, and also at Colonial Williamsburg, Mount Vernon, and across the street at Hanover Courthouse.
Jack Irwin – In addition to playing the Inn Keeper in the annual Richmond Nativity Pageant for nearly 60 years, Jack acted in and directed numerous plays for the Chamberlayne Actors Theater and at Dogwood Dell. When we purchased the historic Empire (now November) Theatre in 1986, Jack was part of the deal. He was our volunteer usher extraordinaire for about ten years.

Both men were our dear and irreplaceable friends. They will be sorely missed.
