ENDING 61, LOOKING TO 62
Yes, March has roared in like a lion and who knows if it will go out like a lamb, but we do know at the Heights Players that means we are focusing in on the end of our 61st season, but we are also planning our 62nd season.
The End of 61: Our final 3 productions and end-of-year festivities!
It seems hard to believe that we are two thirds through our season. Besides our March, April and May productions, we also look forward to the month of June with our annual Gala and Workshop productions. Our fundraising Gala will be an old-fashioned melodrama with comedy, song and dance on the weekend of June 9th. This is our big attempt to put some cash in our coffers while providing you with another great weekend of quality entertainment. And then we present our Directors' Workshop productions on the weekends of June 16 and 23. These two weekends feature the talents of upcoming new directors. All of our end-of-year events promise to be exciting and we will keep you informed as we get more details.
Looking to 62: Board of Directors Elections at this month's meeting!
Our March membership meeting is one of the most important for our community. It's when we vote in the Board of Directors for our 2017-18 season. This team will determine what shows we present next year, along with many other important decisions for our organization. If you are an eligible voting member of the Heights Players, put Monday, March 20 on your calendar now!

JOHN BOURNE, 1924-2015
John Bourne was one of the founding members of the Heights Players. In 1956, a small group of people interested in theater held its first meeting as the Heights Players. John Bourne was at that meeting and from that moment on, he was committed to the organization. His legacy with the Heights Players will never be matched and the organization celebrated this legacy in 2012 by naming the theater after him and bestowing the title of President Emeritus on him, on the occasion of his retirement from the Board of Directors.
John served as President of the Heights Players for twenty years, from 1968-1989. He then remained on the Board of Directors as Member At Large from 1989-2012. His love of theater went far beyond having a leadership role in the group, as he also directed 46 plays, assistant directed five, produced six and acted in numerous productions over the course of 54 seasons. Many audience members more fondly recall his great service as the house manager of 247 plays.
There will never be another John Bourne …
he was one of a kind and he made the Heights Players what it is today.
