After attending the opening night performance of Out of This Furnace at YSU I want to thank so many people who made it such a success! Thank you Dr. Irelan for this wonderful production and for believing in it’s perfect fir for our valley! And thank you Nancy Wolfgang for the wonderful directing of this fantastic group of students. You could tell that you all cared deeply for this story as more than just a piece of theater! Thank you Amber Palmer for all the research you did to make the details so accurate! And thanks to Lori Factor who did so much behind the scenes support of the production, and to all of you who contributed to the wonderful costuming, sets, background details and everyone else that I haven’t mentioned by name!
