Jo Ann Ann Colker-Arison … in memory of my father, Jack, who allowed me to leave the west coast, although he wanted to keep me close. Also for the wonderful opportunity to meet and play with all my Brandeis actors friends in Spingold, especially David and Marta and Jerry. It was quite a time. It’s nice to keep in touch as we mature and experience the joys and sorrows of life and continue to find that the joy of musical theater lightens our hearts.

Joan Funk … in memory of my father, Dr. O. Herman Dreskin, and in memory of my nephew, Jonah
