"Fun, Fun, Fun!"

With a red curtain, velvet rope and props, the community room at Vista Village Senior Living was transformed into a theater July 17.

A senior acting group known as The Script-in-Hand Players created the makeshift stage to perform about a dozen short skits for the center’s residents. Longtime group members and Del Mar residents Bud and Mary Ann Emerson were among the actors who performed to applause and laughter, often taking the stage side by side.

"I just want to thank you and your group for a very entertaining performance at our Thanksgiving Dinner.  You were very gracious about setting up in our strange shaped room - it worked beautifully.  We hope to have you perform again."

"Hi Folks, a few weeks ago we were entertained by a few people called 'Script-in-Hand players' ... They were very good and it made an enjoyable evening for us ... Would be nice to have you back again."

"We hope you'll return and rest assured you'll be welcomed with open arms and gratitude."

"Dear Script In Hand Players!  What a fine and really 'up' performance!  It seemed to make the entire audience relax and enjoy.  Thanks for making that evening so much fun!  Hope to see you people perform again!"



"Thanks to your troup for the delightful program you presented to us on Valentine's Day.  It was upbeat and happy.  We hope you will arrange another soon."
