    Well, I managed to comb the crazy out of my hair and have scrubbed off the last remnants of the lip paint. I have no idea what to do with myself now.

    I've never enjoyed any play, first rehearsal to closing night, as I've enjoyed this one. Now all that remains is striking the set, and I'm just beginning to realize how much I'll miss it. A huge thank-you to the Rep for the oppurtunity and to our fearless leader Kevin for being a smashing director. And of course, none of this would have been possible without the community's support. It's been a terrific, if not somewhat bumpy, ride.

    Good Hunting,

    saw the sat night show and was blown away by the talent, effort and enthusiasm of you young thespians. what a great performance and great production and you should all be proud of yourselves for taking such negativity and ignorance and so gracefully refusing to give up. refreshing and uplifting!

    kevin and the rep - thanks to you all for enhancing our community with such a well run professional theater company - we are lucky to have it!:clap::clap::clap:

    Thank you to everyone who came out and supported us in this play. I know a lot of my fellow cast members have already said this, but it really meant a lot to us. Also, thanks to Kevin and the REP for allowing us to perform on their stage. Like Bri said, it was an opportunity of a lifetime! I have to agree with Kendell when I say that this was the most fun I have had while rehearsing for and performing a play.

    Wow- since last fall, Blithe Spirit has generated enough press to fill a BIG scrapbook.

    http://www.nwfdailynews.com/article/12563

    Also- the Beach Breeze has the BEST article yet- a fabulous review of the play. Pick up your copy of the paper this week! (ALeonard- is there a way to post the article?) The actors are going to flip when they read their awesome reviews!

    And one last update- the Walton County School Board is working to change the challenged materials policy, which we learned about during the Blithe challenge. Thanks (once again) to Mark Davis- he is heading up the change to the current policy, and even e-mailed a copy of the proposed changed policy to several of us that have been asking for the "improvement". We are keeping a look-out for the public hearing on this change.

    From The Walton Sun:

    CHALLENGED MATERIAL TO STILL BE TAUGHT

    The board discussed changing current rules to allow challenged material(s) to continue being taught while a decision from the district is being made on the item.
    Davis said removing items from the classroom because of a challenge could affect the way a class is taught due to the timeliness of the review process.
    ?Why don?t we just strike it (policy)?? he said. ?What is wrong with keeping material in classroom until the board decides to remove it??
    Board attorney Ben Holley agreed.
    ?It?s going to remain status quo until you remove it,? he said.
    The current policy allows a child whose parent or guardian is challenging material, to be removed from the assignment or activity.
    Last year, two books were challenged in the district, as well as the highly publicized play ?Blithe Spirit? at South Walton High School.
    A finalized copy of the district challenged materials rules will be advertised for a public hearing.
