An event like this does not come together without the hard work and selflessness of a lot of people. We here at TheatreROCS are extremely appreciative of everyone who has done something special to contribute toward our efforts tonight. We would like to recognize the Staff of Geva, the staff members of all the collective theatre organizations, tonight's performers/directors/creators, the numerous volunteers, donators, and anyone we inadvertently failed to acknowledge.

Together, we define what it means to be a theatre “community”.
