In 2017, Ed decided to relive his high school drama days and joined the Woodland Park Players, a community theatre group made up of friends new and old. Ed brought so much to the WPP family during rehearsals, afterparties, and each time he stepped onto the stage, dancing and singing and enjoying life. Ed played crapshooter “Nicky Kneecaps” and a Texas Man/Cop in the 2017 performance of Guys And Dolls, and the Purser in the 2018 performance of Anything Goes. Ed was also a member of the WPP board, bringing his creative thinking and direction to the group.
“He was the epitome of joy. His spark and enthusiasm was plain for all to see, and often served as a reminder of why we do the things we do. Hislight will be missed.”
Our dear friend Gaard along with the wonderful Woodland Park Players put together a special little tribute segment for Ed and it aired today on Seattle Refined - here's the link if you'd like to watch it -
The Woodland Park Players is our neighborhood community theatre group that Ed was involved in. WPP is committed to keeping the arts alive with all proceeds from the musical productions and donations benefiting neighborhood public schools for arts programming. Future grants are now called the Ed Harowicz Arts and Education Grant.
