Union Street Players (USP), Pella’s award-winning community theatre, is proud to announce that Deb Linn will be honored as the 2011 inductee into USP’s Walk of Fame. Deb’s first credited role with USP was as Costume Seamtress on the 1989 children’s production “Polky Dot and the Christmas Wish.” Since that time, Deb has continually helped to hold the seams of USP together. She has been involved in over 20 USP productions and has been credited in a wide range of production roles both on stage and off. She has contributed as actor, director, producer as well as working on costumes, set construction, props, programs and publicity. On top of all that, Deb has served for many years as a member of the USP Board of Directors as both Secretary and Vice-President and has been a faithful volunteer in the USP Costume Shop. Most people are unaware that for several years Deb has managed, single-handed, the advertising sales for USP’s programs.
This will be the fourth year USP has honored one of our members by inducting them into the Walk of Fame. Walk of Fame inductees are nominated by USP members or the public. The inductee is chosen from those nominated by the USP Board of Directors. USP has set general criteria used by the Board of Directors for choosing each year’s honoree(s). Walk of Fame members have been involved with USP for at least ten years, have served in multiple capacities, and have helped USP further its stated mission. Deb Linn will join Dottie McGee (2008), Pat Moriarity (2008), Arvin Van Zante (2008), Bev Graves (2009), Peggy Moriarity (2009), and Shelley Buhrow (2010).
