Support urged for community theater

To the editor:
If you haven’t heard of them before, I want to introduce you to the Anderson Community Theater.
This group of actors consists mainly of our local residents with a lot of talent.
This year the play is straight out of our nostalgia: “The 1940’s Radio Hour.” You baby boomers will fondly remember the time when patriotism ran high in this fine country; when families gathered around the radio to listen to variety shows, children’s programs, and WW II news. This play is all about that and more. It is a real treat to go back and remember the times when people pulled together for the good of this country, for the price of freedom, when things were also much more simpler than they are today.
“The 1940’s Radio Hour” is hosting a lot of veteran talent and has young actors who have used this play to learn more about that time past. Two of the actors are from “Guys and Dolls,” the spring high school musical this past school year. If you had the chance to see that musical, you know what a treat it was and the talent ran high.
I want to encourage everyone to attend “The 1940’s Radio Hour” play, which will be at Anderson County Middle School on June 8, 9, and 10, and June 15, 16, 17. Friday and Saturday times are set for 8 p.m., Sunday times for 2 p.m. Tickets are $7, with fathers getting in for half price on Father’s Day.
For all you baby boomers out there, this is a fantastic time of remembrance for you. For all of our veterans, this play will make you proud. For those of you looking for a nice treat for your fathers, grandfathers and father figures, this is the play for you.
These actors have been working vigorously the past couple of months to put on a fine performance and would love for everyone to check it out.
They also extend a special invitation to all of our town officials, veterans, American Legion reps, etc., to come out and see the show.
Come out everyone and support our local talent. You never know, you may be watching the next big star. Let’s all support the arts in our community.
