to you!   You are the best!

Fanelli: Again, I thank you.

Dickens; I would like to compliment you, your staff, your cast.  This is one of the best    shows I have ever seen in Elmsford.

Fanelli: Thank you once again.

Dickens; I had the roast beef for dinner.  Did you know that the price of your ticket covers both dinner and the show?  And there’s free parking, too?

Fanelli: Of course I knew!

Dickens; Sorry.   I figured you did.  “Happiness is a gift and the trick is not to expect it, but to delight in it when it comes.”

Fanelli: I agree.

Dickens: This show “Oliver” at the Westchester Broadway Theatre is, as the song says, in  “Reviewing the Situation” I “Consider Myself” a fan.  I just might take my   friends Tolkien and Tolstoy to the show next week.  I wish to see it again!

Fanelli: You are a gentleman.

Dickens; I can’t understand why people would go to Broadway to see “Annie” or “Matilda” when young actors appear on stage at WBT who are their equals or better in talent!

Fanelli: I agree.

Dickens; In closing, sir, may I say “It is a far, far better thing that I do, than I have ever done; it is a far, far better rest that I go to than I have ever known.”  I mean, to See your wonderful production of “Oliver” at the Westchester Broadway Theatre!

Fanelli: It’s been a pleasure meeting you, Mr. Dickens.

Dickens: For me, too, Mr.Fanelli.  God Speed.
