Merle Wilberding to be Honored by The Muse Machine
In a surprise release to a Victory Theater SRO crowd attending the summer concert on August 8, 2013, the Muse Machine honored Merle Wilberding by announcing that it will be dedicating its upcoming annual musical, “Seussical the Musical,” to him in recognition of his 25 years of service as a board member, emeritus board member, donor and contributor of legal services through Coolidge Wall Co., LPA.
The honor will be awarded at the benefit dinner prior to the performance of “Seussical the Musical,” on Saturday evening, January 18, 2014.
The summer concert by the Muse Machine was “All You Need is Love,” a tribute to the 50th anniversary of the Beatles’ arrival in the United States.
