Farewell to a Friend

Sean Heline
Sean Heline

I have some good news and some sad news to report. The good news is that our radio pal Sean Heline has found a great new job in Michigan and he and his lovely bride Lynn will be making a new home together in the northern climes. The sad news is that Sean will no longer be joining us to make radio fun every month as a regular cast member. Sean has been with the show from almost the beginning of our little radio experiment (He made his first appearance on our second episode to be precise) and it’s going to be hard to imagine the show without him.

He was the voice of Hugh Belmont, Harlow Wilcox, Howard Fine and, of course, Hoppy Hopper. He is truly a class act. When you need a leading man, you get Sean Heline. When you need a hero with a heart of gold, you get Sean Heline. When you need someone with a comic wit, you get Sean Heline. If you need a good friend, onstage and off, you hope that Sean Heline walks into your life.

Thank you and good luck, Sean. Speaking for the cast and crew, I think it’s safe to say you will be greatly missed. We wish you and Lynn and your family only the best. Happy trails, my friend!

The Guys

The Guys

The courage and dedication of a group of firefighters on an indelible day in American history comes to the forefront in Anne Nelson's play based on the events of September 11, 2001. The Guys tells the story of Joan, an editor looking to find her bearings in the wake of the tragedy, and Nick, a fire captain struggling with the memories of the men he has lost. Together, they find the words to memorialize a group of ordinary guys... and a band of heroes... while finding comfort and strength in each other. 

By turns wistful, comic and heartfelt, The Guys is a powerful piece of theatre and a bode of thanks to those who made the ultimate sacrifice on September 11, 2001.

The play will be performed at The Pub Theater at The Heorot (215 S. Walnut St., Muncie IN 47305) on September 8, 9 and 15th at 7:30 p.m. Tickets for these performances are $10. All Active Emergency Personnel will be admitted free with proper identification.

Our final performance will be at The Murpah Shrine Club (3671 N. Shrine Dr., Muncie IN 47303) on September 16th at 7:30 p.m. A 6:00 p.m. dinner will be served at this performance only. Tickets for this performance are $15. All Active Emergency Personnel will be admitted free with proper identification. A portion of the tickets sales from this performance will go to the Muncie Firefighters Donation Fund.

The Guys is rated PG-13 for some language and adult themes. Please call (765) 741- 0591 to reserve your tickets today.
