Presidents Letter
May 2011

Dear Members and Friends:

We are blessed to bring you our first show in ten years at the Fort Hamilton Army Base Theater. We are so very grateful to Commander Gould, Deputy to the Commander Renee Citron, Rocco Mandile, Sarah Johnson, Cathy SantoPietro, Juan Caez, Andres Siacca and all the fabulous folks who work with us on a daily basis at the Fort. We’ve waited a long time. Thank you.

42nd Street is the story of a small town girl who comes to the big city to make it big. This was the seminal show that created the myth of the understudy, Peggy Sawyer, played by Bay Ridge neighbor, Ashley Foley, who goes on to become a star. I’m proud of NCT for taking on this classic, a show most theater companies shy away from because of the triple-threat qualifications: acting, singing and tapping. We found those triple-threats and you are in for a treat.

42nd Street has exceeded expectations, not in terms of entertainment value, but in terms of popularity. Thank you audience for coming out to support us. Without you filling our seats time and again, there would be no NCT. A shout out to our Seniors! This one’s for you.

Directed by awesome NCT newcomer, Tom Berger, with more than 100 shows under his belt; Music Directed by Markus Hauck who once again graces us with his presence and Praise the Lord, we have Jennifer DeVane, whose huge task was to choreograph this dance-heavy spectacle.

Thank you to the entire cast from our very own Board Member, Michel Schneider, who will wow you with his talent, to our newbies, BFF, Jane Cascone.

A word about our sponsors, please support them as they support us. Sit back; relax “on the avenue I’m taking you to, 42nd Street.”

Susan Huizinga
