Beloved friends and family of the Bay Theatre,
It was my honor and pleasure to have performed at The Bay Theatre . They're the ones who gave me the courage to continue on with my vocation long after experiencing the brutal D.C. Theatre Scene. Here, in this theater, my talents were encouraged and cherished which has inevitably led me to do theater in N.Y.C. and now in the West coast! On my resume I proudly post my work at The Bay Theatre and in two auditions here I have been asked about my experience. I cherish every moment, memory and performance - even when the CD stopped in the middle of my song in "A Man of No Importance" - management supported me in every move.

"COMMENTS REFERRING TO JOHN MYERS POST BELOW:
Finally someone not beating around the bush, making politically correct remarks or watching words. Telling it like it is! Forget this see them later sentimentality. Let's see them now! I've learned the longer you wait the least likely it is to happen. This is a theatre that should have the backing of every person and business in town. This is the most rare opportunity to make a donation to save a theatre. A theatre that was up for a Helen Hayes Award 3 times and won once 2012. This is DC's equivalency of the Tony Award in New York. This Little Theatre (81 seats) is playing with the DC Big Boys! Arthur Edwards once told me "I have attended theatre around the world and the Bay Theatre beats them all, And to think it's in my own backyard." Miss Luby is the most talented person I have every met. We have her now but for how long? Lets not let her get away. I for one will donate $20,000 to start. Come on let's see all the "big wigs" and not so "big wigs" step up and save this Annapolis icon! I am tired of hoping for someone with lots of money to help. Forget about a singular hero stepping in and bailing out the Bay Theatre. Let's all be hero's and get this Annapolis Institution back on it's feet. This is your chance to give back some of the joy and hard work that the Bay Theatre and Janet Luby have given you over the years. We had quality theatre on a relatively few donors dimes and for so long we have taken it for granted. I use to think that it didn't take much money to run a little theatre until I volunteered and found out that it takes a lot of money. Let us try to at least get $300,000.00 to get this theatre rolling again and go from there. Even if you can give a little it will help. If I were talking about poor little puppy without a home everyone would help. So let's find your little Annapolis Puppy a home. If we don't, Shame On Us! An Irreplaceable Loss!"

"I am so sorry to hear about the suspension of the theater. I really enjoyed bringing my children to the children's theater performances during the summer. I will watch anxiously for your re-opening!"

"Theatre like this should not disappear. Luby is unrivaled in her field... It appears to me that Annapolis is losing one of, if not it's brightest star in Luby. People like this can not be replaced. A big talent in a small market. I have seen this before someone, maybe a big theatre company in DC or Baltimore comes along and scoop them up and we are left wondering why something more was not none. Caio Janet Luby - she was Annapolis's own. "
