We are saddened to report that PPF member Paul Hennesy passed away on April 24th. Along with fellow PPF-member and life-long friend Mike Mattheisen, Paul won the 2013 WATCH award for Outstanding Set Decoration in a Play for PPF’s production of Mark Twain’s comedy Is He Dead? Paul, a talented landscape painter, also helped design and build the set and allowed the PPF to use much of his own studio on stage and many of his very fine paintings. PPF extends it thoughts and condolences to Paul’s family.

In addition to set decoration, Paul created and added many unique touches to the PPF production of “Is He Dead?” that brought laughter to the audience and good humor to the company
