Penny Award Winner
Shirley Coutu

The Recipient of this year's award is most deserving. Shirley has been a member of Actorsingers for several years and in that time has had an effect on the structure of the organization itself. One of her contributions was the creation of our recently implemented subscriber program. This allows our audience to purchase their tickets yearly at a discount price for reserved seats of their choice for as long as they remain subscribers. The work she is best known for is in our costume department. She has either been our designer or served on the costume committee for most of the shows in the past few years. As Production Coordinator for 2 shows, Audition Board Chairman for 4 shows and member of the Board of Directors now in her 4th year; countless parties, errands and phone calls, we salute Shirley Coutu. Our sincerest thanks. You deserve a standing ovation.


We would appreciate your opinion of our use of a synthesized orchestra such as you will be hearing during the performance. Please write us at P.O. Box 91, Nashua, NH 03061
