The Laymen Playmen Inc

Dear Friends,
Welcome to our 30th Anniversary!  It’s hard for me to believe that some 30 years ago, a group of dedicated people in the Hatfield area got together to perform “Our Town” for the local community.  Since that time The Laymen Playmen, Inc. continues to thrive as a close-knit family of faithful people who wish to give back to our community. Through your generous support through the years, we have been able to provide the Hatfield Pastors’ Fund with donations of almost $150,000.  Years ago we decided as a group to “adopt” the Hatfield Pastors’ Fund as the recipient of our charitable contributions, and it has been a blessing for us to be connected to its efforts.  We are very excited to announce that our 30th production will be The Wizard of Oz.   For you true Laymen Playmen supporters, you will certainly recognize that we have done this show before.  This is indeed correct, we just felt that we wanted a show that held special appeal to both cast and audience members of all ages.  Who among us can ever forget the first time we watched Dorothy open the door to Munchkin Land?   

Maybe it is the songs that we all know and love, maybe it’s the joy of our group coming together yet again, knowing the happiness we will bring to our audiences in just a few short months.  Maybe it’s the hope that despite a nasty election that somehow our country can really start on a new prosperous path.  Maybe it’s the simple truth, “There’s no place like home”.  This show leaves me feeling all warm and fuzzy inside.  It is my sincere hope that this note finds you, your family, your friends, and your business as healthy as times allow.  Unfortunately, there are still a great number of individuals who struggle for the basic necessities of life, right here in our neighborhoods.  One thing that remains certain is that we are called to help those in need. It is our mission to support the Hatfield Pastors’ Fund and other local charities as best we can. And their influence grows in geography each year that we contribute to them.  It may be called The Hatfield Pastors’ Fund, but we service a wide array of communities.  So, I am asking again for your help and support for our organization, while offering an opportunity for you to advertise your business or organization in our Playbill Program that will reach all of our audience members for this year’s upcoming production.  Every year I count myself lucky to be associated with this group of talented individuals, who gladly give of their time, so that we can continue to give back to those who desperately need a “hand up.”  We ask that you consider joining with us through your participation as a Sponsor, Patron, or Advertiser so that our outreach may continue to flourish.  

Also, please consider using tickets for the Laymen Playmen, Inc. productions as an opportunity to offer thanks to your customers, suppliers, vendors, or business clients who may have an interest in theatre. 

Thank you and God bless.
