10:41 am
50 years. with a population of just 10,000 people, kendallville is a rural community without a single professional performing arts organization. but what we have are the high school productions directed and created by craig and karen monk. the program they established demanded excellence in all areas. the sets, the costumes, the lighting, the full orchestras and the 40-plus cast members with each show, all of it gave our community excellence in theater. the shows were our own version of broadway. i began high school in 1979 and was involved in over 20 productions during my four yes. craig instilled in me not only a passion for live theater but a passion for life. he brought an energy to the classroom and stage and never settled for mediocrity. at a time when finding your place and identity was not easy, craig's theater classes were the only place i could discover

myself. i could be who i wanted to be without any kind of judgment. what i learned from craig during those four years continues to resonate with me 33 years later. i am not the only one who feels this way. almost 50 years of live theater has raised doctors, lawyers, teachers, farmers, musicians, performers, moms and dads. each of us have stories of our time on one stage, the monk stage. and the one thing we all have in common is a love of theater and the love of craig and karen monk. >> that's great. >> wow! >> craig and karen monk are here along with rick, who nominated them. welcome, welcome. well done. >> thank you. >> well done. do you believe it's been 50 years, 5-0? >> it went very fast. >> is that all you ever wanted
