2019 Bylaw Amendment Proposal

Pinewood Players Special Notification – Bylaw Amendments

In November 2018 the Pinewood Players Board of Directors commissioned a committee to review the organization’s bylaws for the purpose of proposing clarifications and changes to update the document and bring it up to current organizational standards and relevance. The committee completed it’s task and presented a proposal for amending the document in the April 6, 2019 Board of Directors meeting. The Board voted unanimously to approve the committee’s proposal to update the bylaws document and to proceed to the next step to have the changes approved by the General Membership of Pinewood Players pursuant to Article X. Adoption and Amendment of the Pinewood Players Bylaws which states:

“These Bylaws may be amended by a two-thirds majority vote of the members present at any General Membership Meeting provided notice has been given in advance. This notice to members may be at a previous meeting, with written or oral communication, not less than 30 days prior to the meeting.”

In accordance with this requirement the Pinewood Players Board of Directors is notifying the members of record as of May 13 in writing on this date, May 15, 2019, that a vote to amend the bylaws will take place during the General Members Meeting scheduled to be held on June 22, 2019 in the Pinewood Country Club at 10:00 am. CLICK HERE to view the document indicating the proposed changes. The Board recommends approval of all of the proposed changes.

We will look forward to your attendance at the June 22, 2019 General Membership Meeting and to your vote to approve the proposed amendments to the Pinewood Players Bylaws.

Thank you,
Pinewood Players Board of Directors

2019 Season Preview

Pinewood Players Announces 2019 Plays

The 2019 season of Theater in the Pines will open in June with “Cahoots” by Rick Johnson. The play is a “dark comedy” filled with witty dialog and farcical overtones. It will be directed by Frank Hess. Frank is a veteran of the Pinewood Playhouse stage and he has directed three previous main stage productions (“Exit the Body” “Wrong Window” and “The Gazebo”). He most recently produced the 2018 Reader’s Theater for Pinewood Players. CLICK HERE to read a synopsis of “Cahoots.”

The second play of the season scheduled for August will be the award winning drama “A Delicate Balance” by Edward Albee. The play premiered in 1966 starring Jessica Tandy and Hume Croyn. It won the Pulitzer Prize for Drama in 1967. It was made into a movie in 1973 starring Katharine Hepburn, Paul Schofield and Lee Remick. There have been two Broadway revivals of the play, one in 1996 which won the Toni Award for best play revival and the other in 2014 that starred John Lithgow and Glenn Close. Les Maurseth, also a veteran of the Pinewood Playhouse main stage will be returning to direct his second play. Les directed a remarkable production of “Aspirin & Elephants” earlier this season and we are looking forward to enjoying his work again. CLICK HERE to read a brief synopsis of “A Delicate Balance.”
