Wesley Reid (Stage Manager)
This will be Wes’ second show with Isis productions. He was the PSM for Too Much Sun last March. He thanks both Renee and Neill for all the love and support they have generously given him these two years. To the wonderful cast, he wishes them all the luck and laughter possible. It’s all a pleasure and such a learning experience to watch a cast grow into a unit telling the same story. Finally, to my husband of 12 years…there aren’t words to express how much you mean to me . . . till forever and beyond! Enjoy the show.
