1927 - 2016
|It is with great sadness and heavy hearts that we share (with the permission of his family; and our heartfelt condolences are with them) that our founder, David Morris, passed away, peacefully, last night in his sleep.
David's dream of a community theater in Aurora has grown and thrived for 38 years. This is the man whose singular vision brought untold numbers of us together over those years and united us in our love of theatre.
He was more than our founder. He was a friend and a mentor. He was a legend among us and our father.
He will be thought of fondly and missed beyond words.
For those of you who knew David Morris and wish to join in a celebration of his life, come to the Riverfront Playhouse, 11-13 S. Water Mall, Aurora, IL 60505, Sunday, March 13 at 2pm.
Since David was in show business his entire life, I think it's appropriate to mention that there will be a wholly INAPPROPRIATE video at some point in the proceedings, which will feature David telling the GREAT BULLMOOSE JOKE.
David was famous (infamous?) for telling jokes and no joke is more associated with him than this one.
That is all. Hope to see you all Sunday!
