It is with an extremely heavy heart that we say goodbye to a fantastic man, father, friend and family member. We are saddened to say our beloved Wendell passed away Wednesday, May 26, suddenly and to all our surprise.
Wendell has been and forever will be the guiding light of this theater. He gave himself with every ounce of his body to perform to the joy of many audiences at the Playhouse/Watson's, without asking for anything in return. He would give the shirt off his back (literally) if you needed it, or if he just wanted to (little inside joke there). He was always giving, both on and off the stage. If you needed anything, Wendell was there. He was an exceptional father to his son Max ,who will always be part of our family, and a man that made you feel at ease anytime you talked to him. He will truly be missed by his friends, family, his theater family and anybody who was blessed enough to know him.
Exit stage left, Wendell; "break a leg" in that divine stage in the sky, you will be extremely missed.
Join us as as we will be dedicating our theater to Wendell. Moving forward, it will be called the
Wendell H.A. Wilson Theater at Watson's .
