Many, many thanks
to everyone who so far, has donated to the framed cast photos
that Jody Byers and Janet Patterson have been working on
since last season. Jody has been collecting and framing
and Janet was displaying a few at each of the recent productions.
To up-date everyone...a total of 41 photos out of over 150
productions have been framed.
So you see,
there are many ways to do a production cast photo for our
Wall of Fame which is currently on the third floor of our
headquarters. You can specifically request a production
or just send in your sponsorship. You can send in in memory
of someone. The price is $25.00 per framing, a very reasonable
price for the gorgeous silver matting and frame.
If you are interested
in doing a sponsorship, mail in your $25.00 per framed photo
to: Theatre 7, Photo Sponsorship, PO Box 972, Decatur, IL.
62525-0972. Any questions and/or comments call Jody Byers
@ 428-8886 or Janet Patterson @ 872-0421. Thank you all
