IN MEMORIAM
Frank L. Harvey
1931-1979

The collage above is a small sampling detailing the varied roles Frank L. Harvey played over the years as the Actorsingers' baritone lead. The pictures show him as he appeared in life as Senior Vice President of the Nashua Trust Company, and on stage and in rehearsals in the parts of Dr. Engel in "The Student Prince," Gaylord Ravenal in "Showboat," Curly in "Oklahoma" and Fagin in "Oliver," a part which many regard as his finest performance.

Those of us who knew Frank find the essence of the man expressed in the following:

"That man is a success who has lived well, laughed often, and loved much; who has gained the respect of intelligent men, and the love of children; who has filled his niche and accomplished his task; who leaves the world better than he found it, whether by an improved poppy, a perfect poem or a rescued soul; who never lacked appreciation of earth's beauty or failed to express it; who looked for the best in others and gave the best he had."
-Anonymous

It is with respect and affection that we dedicate this program to Frank.


UNSUNG HEROES
Warren Tomasian
Raelene Liljeberg
George Marineau

It takes many dedicated people working together for a common goal to bring about a successful conclusion to any undertaking. And the undertaking of a Broadway musical is no exception.

We in Actorsingers are fortunate in having many such people and would like to take this opportunity to acknowledge three of them. These are the people who work behind the scenes, doing difficult tasks that require time and effort but offer little glory. These are the steady, dependable, noncomplainers, who, enduring frustration, somehow manage to keep their sense of humor.

There is Warren Tomasian, a man who finds time from running a family business to do a crackerjack job of building sets. There is Raelene Liljeberg, a woman who will step in at the last minute to assume responsibility of a job in a crisis situation. And finally there is George Marineau, who can always be found backstage doing any number of tasks that no one else is willing to do.

WE SALUTE YOU, UNSUNG HEROES!


PENNY AWARD
In the fall of 1978, the Actorsingers' Board of Directors passed a resolution calling for an award to be presented to as individual who, over the years, has displayed in word and action, a steadfast and unselfish devotion to the growth and development of the Actorsingers as a theatrical organization. It was called the Penny Award, in honor of Margaret "Penny" Tamulonis who best exemplified these qualities. To no one's surprise, Penny Tamulonis was the first recipient of this award.

This year, we are delighted to present the Penny Award to life member, Linnea McAllister
"For her constant commitment to the organization."
