Mark Weber Remembers Local Theatre Enthusiast Carole Forhan
Excerpted from Remembering local theatre enthusiast Carole Forhan by Mark Weber
Red Deer Express, November 2, 2016
“… One of the most charming, warm and friendly people I ever had the pleasure of knowing passed away last week here in Red Deer.
Carole Forhan was one of those folks who was absolutely central to the theatrical community in Red Deer.
Long involved with Central Alberta Theatre and later on with the Red Deer Players as well, Carole was one of those people who just seemed to be everywhere – endlessly enthusiastic about any number of theatre projects taking place on the local front. Even if she wasn’t directly involved in a particular play, I’d often run into her at preview nights – she would be there just to encourage the team and offer her support.
I know that I will never forget her or the inspiration that I not only received from her in my own life, but which I saw her pass on to so many others as well. She was a delight – a very bright light – and those are the people who make the most profound differences in our lives. God bless you and keep you, Carole.”
