The Seafarer at Brainerd Community Theatre

Brainerd Community Theatre presented Conor McPherson's "The Seafarer" Dec. 10-12 and 17-19. This poignant Christmas tale of loss and redemption was very well received by audiences at the seven performances held in the Dryden Theatre. No production goes on without the hard work of many individuals, whom we'd like to extend our sincere thanks.

To the talented cast of community actors: Jesse Brutscher, Rande Erickson, Shane Keran, Marc Oliphant and Michael Sander, we thank you for your many long hours of rehearsal and all the work you put into creating a collection of memorable characters. To our community member/designers: Dawn Marks, Tim Leagjeld, Ben Kent, and Laura Burgess we thank you for your creative spirit and dedication to making the show look and sound so terrific. Thanks to our community volunteer house manager, Shawna Sylvester, and to our volunteer ushers. Jean Beckmann not only handled ticket sales but also worked very hard on promotion and publicity; her box office staff, Melissa Barton, also deserves thanks. And certainly our thanks go to Bri Keran, community volunteer stage manager, who kept the entire production process on time and in focus.

Widseth, Smith and Nolting sponsored the production, and we heartily thank them for their generous financial support.

Finally, this production was made possible in part by an Operating Support Grant from the Minnesota State Arts Board, thanks to a legislative appropriation from the Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund.
