Feature: Salisbury Post - David zum Brunnen says Piedmont Players is 'home'

Lifestyle text size: AAA David zum Brunnen says Piedmont Players is 'home'
David zum Brunnen Piedmont Players is home. The group has rehearsed in many different places over time, but when you're in rehearsal, building or striking the set, or getting ready for the show, you’re at home. And when you're on your way to rehearsal — you’re on your way home. It may not always feel that way at every given moment, but you really are.

Piedmont Players is family. I don’t necessarily mean the family you share a house with, or your blood relations. I mean the family with whom you share the failures, the successes, the fears, the pain, the laughs and the joy that come with working on a show — on-stage or off-stage.

It’s just like a family of sorts, because some family members you immediately connect with, and others, well ... ya just don’t. But you still work together for a common purpose — and it usually pays off in the end.

"It was a delightful day for us....I was so happy that one particular student, Alec, participated in the 'talk back session' after the show - his self-concept has been soaring this week.  Please use us a  reference anytime.  Hope our paths cross again soon."

"Barbara and I sat there enthralled.  I am blessed by remembering the words of any tune I have ever known.  I sang the entire score under my breath and almost fell in love with Serena on the spot.  Thanks for renewing valued, old memories.  You made me wish that I had been sitting close to Barbara instead of across the table."
