I am thrilled to be celebrating my 6th season as Managing Director of the Fine and Performing Arts Center. Even more exciting, however, is being here as we celebrate the 20th anniversary of the center itself. Again and again, we see sold-out houses for our performances, and the positive feedback for the past several years has been tremendously gratifying.

This year, we hope you will agree that we have put together a truly special season to help celebrate our milestone anniversary. As part of the planning for this season, we convened a 20th Anniversary Planning Committee. I would like to extend a grateful “Thank you!” to those people who helped to craft this season and who will continue to work with me to create special events throughout the year. The committee consists of the following dedicated fans of the Fine and Performing Arts Center:

Wally Fronczek, Erik LaGatutta, Dr. Margaret Lehner, Sue Linn, Beth Miller, Sean McIntosh,
Dr. Craig Rosen, Mary Stewart, Nick Thomas, and Sandra Wagner

I also want to thank each and every patron who has helped to make this a world-class arts venue for the past 20 years. I hope you will continue to think of the Fine and Performing Arts Center as your primary destination the highest quality visual and performing arts experiences If you have any comments or suggestions, please do not hesitate to contact me at or call the Box Office at (708) 974-5500.

All the best,
Tommy Hensel, Managing Director
