Our good friend, longtime member, and great guy Ed Rutter has passed away. Those of you who knew Ed understand this great loss. Those of you who may not have known him well know of him. Ed was an actor, director, set designer, maintenance stalwart, and a good person. Ed passed away on Monday with his family by his side.
Ed was known primarily as a first rate set designer and director, but occasionally he graced the boards as an actor. His last performance on the Playcrafters stage was in 2013's Caught in the Net, a performance he cherished as he was able to act alongside his beloved grandson, Zane.
