Way Off Broadway”

brings together the talents of many performers who have been “playing around” with Branch River Theatre (BRT) for many, many years.  Much of the motivation in collecting such a vast array of entertainers, is to support a local young man, David Hudgik, who suffered a traumatic spinal cord injury in September, 2011.  When the call went out to our fellow acting peers, the response was overwhelming.  Knowing that 100% of all of the proceeds generated by performances of Way Off Broadway, would go to David and his family, made the event very personal to many people involved.  Many of us know David or know of David, because of his connection with one of the Directors of Way Off Broadway – Jeff Repko.

Over the span of many years, several of the actors who will be appearing in Way Off Broadway have been together in musicals, plays, variety shows and fundraisers for various not-for-profits.  The opportunity to work together again for such a worthwhile cause has already made the experience a memorable one.  Aside from various vocalists, there will be some improve, skits, baton twirling and a special appearance from people we like to call The Blue Shirt Group.

David Gets His New Wheelchair!

New Chair!


YES! It is here, he is in it and he is very excited!

He tested it out on the ramp, driveway and on grass. A great workout for his arms. He did it all with a big smile on his face.

From this day forward his mobility and Independence have been increased greatly.

Thank you everyone for your help with this fund raising project! Part of his plan is for him to get around in his new chair to thank as many people as possible in person for their help.

Your support, love and prayers are definitely helping David move forward.

Thank you all very much,

David’s Dad Paul

A Great Day! • October 13th

AGreat Day3

David and family went up to the hiking trails at Crotched Mountain to do some more exploring. This time David chose the Dutton Brook Trail to hike. The Trail is about two miles long and drops down into the woods and circles an old beaver pond. A very nice hike with many bridges to cross and good views.

Some Great News!  After a very long wait David will be getting his new manual wheelchair tomorrow. He is very excited and can’t wait to get going with it.

Thank you to all who contributed.  He could not have gotten this without your help. This will be a big step in his Journey to Recovery.

More to follow tomorrow.

Thank you for your love, support and prayers.

David’s Dad Paul
