County Council, in their introduction to our special recognition, stated that 'The Media Theatre has become a great institution and cornerstone of Delaware County' and that 'It's so wonderful to see what it has become' having had celebrated performers such as Wanda Sykes, Ann Crumb, Andrea McArdle, and Justin Guarini on its professional music theatre stage.

Artistic Director Jesse Cline was mentioned for 'leading the theatre to nationally recognized success', as well as Executive Director Patrick Ward and Roger Ricker.
Tasha Waters, who is currently in "Beehive", performed "You'll Never Walk Alone" from another show she was in at Media Theatre("Carousel"). She was accompanied by our Resident Music Director Ben Kapilow. Her performance received thunderous applause!
Patrick Ward mentioned that the song 'exemplifies getting through all of the ups and downs of maintaining a theatre company'.
Madison Van Horn, one of our talented New School students, performed the National Anthem to open the meeting.
We thank The Delaware County Council for their recognition and support over the past 25 years, and look forward to a bright future! Visit our website at mediatheatre.org for upcoming performances of our Broadway Series, Children's Shows, and Camp Media Theatre information.
