CAST UPDATE

Due to an unexpected circumstance, actor Andre Stojka (voice of Whit) will be undergoing radiation therapy and won’t be joining us for One Grand Party. Andre has given permission for us to share this update with you and regrets that he can’t be there for the celebration. He will, however, continue in the role of Mr. Whittaker after the event. Please be in prayer for Andre.
