It is with profound sadness that we share with you the passing of one of the Falmouth Theatre Guild’s brightest stars.
Irene Thibeault, performer, concessions manager, member of the board of directors, and all-around show mother for so many of us passed away on Monday, June 21st.
With her lengthy tenure at Falmouth Theatre Guild beginning with “Moon Motel” in 1976, Irene has performed in roles ranging from singing in the chorus and dancing with the ensemble in countless shows to leading performances in hits like FTG’s “Showboat” and “La Cage aux Folles.”
Irene was a long-time member of the Guild’s board of directors where she filled many roles, most notably as concessions chair. During her time managing concessions, Irene raised money that went towards providing scholarships to local students. She was extremely proud of her work helping to fund educational opportunities, and in 2017, the Falmouth Theatre Guild created a new scholarship, the “Irene Thibeault Spirit of FTG Scholarship” to honor her for her hard work and dedication. Most recently, the Highfield Theater concession stand has officially been named “Irene’s” and her legacy will continue to live on.
There will be a celebration of Irene’s life at 9:30 a.m. Monday, June 28th at Highfield Hall, 56 Highfield Drive, Falmouth, MA 02540 followed by a reception next door at Highfield Theater. Please join us as we share stories and celebrate a life that was full of love, joy, and talent (and cookies). Keeping with Irene’s style, sparkly attire is highly suggested for this event. In lieu of flowers, Irene’s family has asked that donations may be made to the Falmouth Theater Guild (mailed to P.O. Box 383, Falmouth, MA, 02541 or online below).
