“Every Christmas Story Ever Told (And Then Some!)” marks Lindsey Elsberry and Tash Parker’s directorial debut! The two have been acting, together (and apart), in community theatre for over seven years now and are excited to make the leap into this new role.
“We would like to thank our crazy families, and especially mom’s, for always supporting our need to be creative, in one outlet or another. We would also like to congratulate and thank our actors and crew (we did it!) A special thanks to Walter and Debbie Webb and Bill and Carol Cubbage for introducing us into the Cushing Community Theatre, where we’ve proudly set up camp all these years. Thank you to Mila’s for all your donated time and work.
“We wanted to do something light-hearted…a feel-good play to distract ourselves from the ever-present seriousness of life…and we are so thankful the two brains, together (Lindsey and Tash), worked well enough, combined, to save each other’s lives…”
