This letter is in response to John Nelson's very nice article entitled "Rich Rewards" in Sunday's A&E section of the newspaper.
Indeed, we are blessed in Danville-Boyle County with many arts organizations and opportunities - more so than most communities our size. However, it was a disappointment that one of the "anchor organizations" did not even get a nod of mention in the broadly encompassing article. West T. Hill Community Theatre is celebrating its 25th Silver Anniversary Season this year, and we are a bit miffed as to why we were not included along with the other prominent and worthy entities. Although we are not nearly as old as Pioneer Playhouse, we are a different venue, viable and worthy of mention in our own right.
As managing director of the community theater, I strive each day to get our theater into the traffic of informational avenues. We are appreciative of the coverage the Advocate-Messenger extends, but are dismayed as to why we weren't even given a brief mention in this particular article. We recognize there are space constraints, but as I read this article, I was just sure that an oversight had taken place as I scanned the article again and again.
