Ned says, "At this time I will be a fill-in in a few scenes due to the fact I had to leave the show due to health in mid summer. My biggest challenge has not been anything with the show, but I have had the challenge of living with cancer for now and wanting to continue with the show. I was excited that I was able to return to the show in a small way. I played Rufus in Lil' Abner and Uncle Henry in the Wizard of Oz at Imagination Theater. I love doing theater and very proud to be associated with the Imagination Theater family."
