Revealing Pageant of the Masters for 2022!

Last evening's Festival of Arts 2021 Annual Membership Meeting was not only informative but heartwarming and unveiled a nice surprise. President, David Perry, began by recapping the past two years and the challenges they faced in 2020 and 2021. He was proud of how his dedicated staff pivoted and pulled through, making the 2021 season quite successful and heading into 2022 debt-free. Board Member and Secretary Pat Kollenda was pleased to announce they awarded over $30,000 in scholarships this year. 40-year Festival Artist and educator Pat Sparkuhl received a special Life Membership Award, and volunteers who served 15+ years received Life Membership Awards. On a sad note, David Perry announced that longtime board member, Bob Moffett, passed away, and we learned how much he meant to the organization.

Naturally, the moment members of the press were anticipating was the unveiling of the production theme for next year's Pageant. Without further ado, the theme for the 2022 Pageant of the Masters is "Wonderful World." We watched a short video of the art pieces in succession through ACT 1 and ACT 2. American journalist Nellie Bly who, in 1890, set out to travel around the world in fewer than 80 days, was the inspiration for Pageant Director Diane Challis Davy. The show is a whirlwind of travel to 17 countries in 90 minutes, so you can bet this will entice your wanderlust, and there will be much to discover and learn. Come to the casting call in January if you or anyone you know would like to be cast in "Wonderful World" next summer.

Tickets for "Wonderful World" go on sale December 1st! www.foapom.com

P.S.: Don't miss the Bizarre Bazaar on Nov. 27th from 9 am to 2 pm at the Festival of Arts Grounds. It's time to clean house and sell off some of their "Art" ifacts, ephemera, memorabilia, artworks, set pieces, costumes, books, you name it!
