First Birthday Bash

Story and photography by Megan Venable

Patrons and board members gathered in the lobby of the Flying Anvil Theatre to celebrate a year of achievement on its new stage in Rocky Hill. At the occasion, Artistic Director Jayne Morgan presented the inaugural “Wings Award” to sponsor Randy Massey for his risk-taking and visionary support of the theatre. Following the presentation, all were invited to a special showing of “8x10: Eight Plays, Ten Actors, Hundreds of Laughs!”

Named in honor of those who risk their necks by lighting the fuse at an old-timey anvil shoot, the Flying Anvil Theatre has a two-winged mission: to provide the community an opportunity to enjoy the efforts of a professional theatre run by top-notch actors, directors and designers as well as to share the stories of underserved populations.
