A Message from our Artistic Director

Posted on

photo of KQFor the first time in 38 years, there is no first day rehearsal for Magic Moments. This is kind of a sad day, filled with a sense of loss, or maybe nostalgia, or anger at the universe, or many other emotions.

But, it could also be a time for reflection, a time to deepen our friendships in other ways thru our MM associations. We can bring renewed energy, renewed commitment, renewed passion for what we love. We have the chance to find new ideas, songs, dances, new ways of doing what we love. We can use all of this to reinforce the idea that all of us are one and the same regardless of our various and different attribute, talents etc. and show the world that this is not just an idea but is a livable reality.

I miss you all and look forward to many more years of “United we stand, united we fall, let’s make this show the best of all! Give ‘em hell!!”

Do you know a Magic Moments actor who does amazing work? Is there anyone in this year’s show whom you personally want to send some love to? Want to just tell the whole cast to break a leg?

It’s Sweet Nothings week at Magic Moments! That means that you too can purchase a Sweet Nothing for a friend or family member in the cast/crew to tell them how fabulous you think they are.

For only $10 each, a Sweet Nothing is a personalized note, included in our program, that tells your friends and family how much you support them. Sweet Nothings can be purchased in person at any Sunday rehearsal, or online at:


Several former Sweet Nothings recipients during a voice recital.

100% of the money raised from the sale of Sweet Nothings goes into our Special Needs Theatre Arts Scholarship, providing opportunities for people with special needs to study the performing arts. Additionally, Magic Moments matches, dollar for dollar, all the money raised towards this program, doubling your donation to this great cause.

EVERYONE loves getting and reading Sweet Nothings, and our scholarship program has already helped many of our talented special needs performers. Please consider purchasing a Sweet Nothing for your loved ones and supporting this amazing program.
