"The Playhouse has provided a great deal of education and entertainment for us and our family, from the moment we moved here in 1970 until now. Betty and Morse Johnson were some of the first friends we made in this city; it was at Morse's invitation that I was able to join the Board of Trustees, on which I served with pleasure for many years.

I believe that the Playhouse encourages learning and imagination, and it is one our community's rich artistic resources. Betsy's and my commitments are only appropriate because others who came before us made the quality of theatre we enjoy today possible. Now, it is our turn."
Paul G. Sittenfeld, 2017

"My husband and I became season subscribers early in our marriage. Coming to the Playhouse became our 'date night' and it was a special time for us to share. The arts are often underfunded, and it is very hard to provide quality programming if income is unreliable. We were happy to become Morse Johnson Society members to ensure that the Playhouse would be around for many others to enjoy. This legacy helps provide a firm foundation while acknowledging how important the Playhouse has been to my family."
Board Member, 2018
