Simon Fuger, President, Friends of Thingamajig Theatre
Simon became hooked on Theater at age eight when he saw his first live performance of Peter Cook and Dudley Moore in Beyond the Fringe at the Fortune Theater in London. A love of theater remained a constant throughout his life. He was delighted that professional quality theater came to Pagosa in 2011 and committed to do all he could to foster community support for the Thingamajig Theatre Company. It turned out many others felt the same way which led to the formation of the Friends of Thingamajig Theatre in 2015. Today the Friends can claim 250 members who support the Theatre and have a lot of fun in the process.
