It’s the end of the Festival, y’all. Which is a somewhat surreal and amazing thing. On the one hand, I imagine everyone feels a bit relieved to have reached the culmination of so much effort. And most of you have already started moving on to the next creative project – full steam ahead.
But there’s definitely something sad about it too. At least for me. It’s sort of like we threw this tremendous party that spanned roughly a quarter of the year… and now everyone has headed home. And it’s sort of quiet.
Everyone here at Plays for Presidents has been greatly impacted by your presence in this grand experiment. And every single one of us is insanely grateful for all you did to make it such an historical and powerful event.
Through our collective efforts, we managed to pull off a national event that involved over 1,600 theatre artists, reached over 20,000 audience members, and disseminated over 13,000 voter registration forms/info/updates. And that’s simply phenomenal.
So Jeff Mosser, our intrepid team member, put together a little thank-you/love note/wrap-up video from all of us, to all of you. You can watch it here.
We are so thankful for your participation – and we hope you stay in touch, keep us posted, and continue to share and enjoy the Plays for Presidents for Educators wiki and 44 Films for 44 Presidents extravaganza.
Happy holidays to all of you… and thank you for helping us make history!
