Portrait of Ruth BrownRUTH'S RUMINATIONS APRIL 2020



I was thinking this weekend about ESTAFest 2020:

  • and the people WE would have reconnected with,
  • the laughs WE would have shared,
  • the plays WE would have seen,
  • the adjudications WE would have heard,
  • the food WE would have enjoyed, and
  • the congratulations WE would have given to winners!

While COVID-19 did not allow ANY of those things to happen except as dreams in our theatrically fevered brains, I, as President of ESTA, wanted once again to say a large "THANK YOU" to all of you who donated your ticket money to ESTA. Also, there is still time for any participating theater group(s) that have not yet made a donation to do so before the Festival Report is finalized at the end of April.

Stay healthy and safe until we meet again around the theater!

Ruth K. Brown
ESTA President
