ENDING 61, LOOKING TO 62
April showers bring May flowers, this we know. And at the Heights Players, our May flowers are about to bloom in full! Our final mainstage production of our 61st season is just about to open. We have "something for everyone" as we present A Funny Thing Happened On The Way To The Forum!
The End of 61: Our final production and end-of-year festivities!
It seems hard to believe that we are ending our 61st season! Besides our final musical of the season, we also look forward to the month of June with our annual Gala and Workshop productions. Our fundraising Gala will be an old-fashioned melodrama with comedy, song and dance on the weekend of June 9th. This is our big attempt to put some cash in our coffers while providing you with another great weekend of quality entertainment. And then we present our Directors' Workshop productions on the weekends of June 16 and 23. These two weekends feature the talents of upcoming new directors. All of our end-of-year events promise to be exciting and we will keep you informed as we get more details.

JOHN BOURNE, 1924-2015
John Bourne was one of the founding members of the Heights Players. In 1956, a small group of people interested in theater held its first meeting as the Heights Players. John Bourne was at that meeting and from that moment on, he was committed to the organization. His legacy with the Heights Players will never be matched and the organization celebrated this legacy in 2012 by naming the theater after him and bestowing the title of President Emeritus on him, on the occasion of his retirement from the Board of Directors.
John served as President of the Heights Players for twenty years, from 1968-1989. He then remained on the Board of Directors as Member At Large from 1989-2012. His love of theater went far beyond having a leadership role in the group, as he also directed 46 plays, assistant directed five, produced six and acted in numerous productions over the course of 54 seasons. Many audience members more fondly recall his great service as the house manager of 247 plays.
There will never be another John Bourne …
he was one of a kind and he made the Heights Players what it is today.
