Farewell to a Dear Friend

It is with great sadness and heavy hearts that Indian Valley Theatre share the passing this week of a very special and talented member of our group, Rich Bryan. Rich was involved in all aspects of the theatre for many years alongside his wife and founding member Mimi. He starred as the villain in many Sandwich Fair Melodramas as well as doing the lights and sets at the Fairgrounds for many years. We could always count on Rich’s talents as technical lighting director for productions, scaling the light towers at the Opera House with superman agility. He often appeared on stage in a variety of roles throughout the years. Rich also lent his expertise as a Director on many productions. Our sincere sympathies go out to Allison Bryan, Carl Bryan and their families and the many friends who loved him. IVT will miss you and your humor…Mr. Rich. We thank you so much for sharing your life and talents with us. We know you and Mimi will be guiding performers in heaven. 😇🎭

The family has asked that memorial contributions be made to the Mimi Bryan Memorial IVT Scholarship or to Indian Valley Theatre.
