Carnegie Players would not be here, were it not for the lives devoted to its creation. We would like to take a moment to honor a few of those people: Wally Laird and his family.
Ron Jordan, Carnegie Players Member & friend of Wally Laird states these words: "Through hard work, dedication and working together, many lasting friendships and lifetime bonds have evolved with community theater of the Carnegie Players. We are now starting our 27th year, with new challenges presenting itself with the coronavirus. We would like to thank the Rensselaer community for their support of the Carnegie players."
