Dear Friends,

This week we lost a dear friend and valued member of our Arts on the Lake Community. Steve Schreiber, beloved husband of Mary, passed away on Saturday from a battle with cancer. Steve was a special man with vast capabilities whose dynamic spirit was always excited and supportive of people through his positive attitude.

Through the years, he was involved in many events at the Art Center ranging from being a puppeteer and helping build stage sets, to playing music, and painting walls.  He was a brilliant musician, and he loved sharing his gifts with others. We will miss having him come bounding through the doors ready to jump into whatever is happening.

Mary has asked that any contributions in honor of Steve be given to The New Hampshire Music Festival. "Since Steve was a child, he spent time every summer in the White Mountains. He enjoyed hiking, biking, swimming, and relaxing and playing music on the porch of his family’s cottage...Support to this organization would reflect both his enjoyment of the mountains and his love of music."

You can go to the Support section on their website: and enter your information and Steve Schreiber in the Dedication Information section. You may also enter Mary's email ( if you would like her to know about your contribution.

She will also let us know when a date for a gathering to remember Steve will be set in the near future.

Screenwriter/Playwright Ron Hutchinson reports that AotL-developed Clinging to the Iceberg will be at the Tyneside Festival in Newcastle upon Tyne in England this October. And, as might be expected, there is serious in Jos Vantyler for Lookin’ for Trouble in London. Jos, while waiting to realize Elvis again, has been well-received in Two Noble Kinsmen and Love’s Labor’s Lost. This spring we expect that AotL will again be the site of a new Hutchinson work. He’s been developing a story on how forcibly-imported sparrows have flourished in the New World. Yes!
