The Hot Springs Village Players are made up of people who bring many talents to our productions. Sometimes gratitude is overlooked in the frenzy after the bows of the last performance are taken. This is the place to let you know how much you are needed and appreciated by us. There can be only one recipient per month, but rest assured that one day you'll find yourself in the spotlight!
Our first Spot Light Award is given posthumously to Dave Gray. In his short time with the Hot Springs Village Players Dave participated in two plays, Oklahoma as a cowpoke and Damn Yankees as a baseball player. He thoroughly enjoyed both parts, putting all he had into his lines! In 2018, Dave performed and excelled at a charitable event, given by the Hot Springs Village Police Academy, in an improvisational play, Murder at the Midnight Hour. He was also excited to be a part of the governing board of the Players as a Member-at-Large stating that he would do any job we needed done. His first contribution to the Board "getting the Players out in the public eye" was a suggestion that we go to Good Sam's to put on skits there. The idea was widely received by the board.
Although a quiet man, he always demonstrated a positive and cooperative attitude.
Dave enjoyed being a member of the Woodlands Presbyterian Church choir. Reliable rumor has it that he was even taking voice lessons! He did enjoy the musicals and was looking forward to participating in the next one we did.
Dave will be missed by all. We are grateful that he found pleasure in the time he was active with Hot Springs Village Players. We know that he is singing with the angels.
