The Passing of a USP Family Member

We regret to announce that, earlier this week, Union Street Players lost a friend and family member when Mike Atkins passed away after a courageous battle with cancer. Mike's boundless enthusiasm and contagious joy was a welcome presence whenever he accompanied a USP production. His musical talent, but more importantly his sweet spirit and good humor, will be sorely missed. Mike's entire family are a part of our USP family. His wife, Cyndi, has acted, served as Assistant Director, and is a member of USP's Board of Directors. Mike's children, Ben and Megan, are also veterans of USP productions and Megan is in the cast of our current production of K.O.L.D. Radio, Whitefish Bay.

Family will be at visitation tonight at Garden Chapel Funeral Home (1301 Main St., Pella, Iowa) from 5-7 pm Friday night, March 26th. Celebration of Life service Saturday, March 27th at 10:30 am at Trinity Reformed Church (407 Franklin, Pella, Iowa). 

Please join us in our prayers for Mike's family and loved ones.
