Letters to the Editor – May 16

“A jewel in Clifton
I recently had the privilege of attending the latest production of Theater League of Clifton’s “You Can’t Take It With You.” I found [it] to be a truly enjoyable evening in the theater. The cast had talent equal to Broadway actors and the set design was so impressive that you knew it had to be professionally done with all the period furniture and costumes from the 1930s.
Clifton should be grateful that this group has put so much effort into giving back to its community. How fortunate we are to have this jewel in our own backyard. There were many residents participating in this wonderful production. From the ushers, to the people selling refreshments at intermission and the lighting was operated by students learning the ropes, as were the back stage hands at each of the six shows. And the majority of the proceeds go towards awarding two scholarships to high school students each year.
I have never seen a collaboration of a community come together for a group or organization with such enthusiasm as I have seen for TLC. Sometimes it takes years to build a community theater and TLC has done a wonderful job in less than 3 years. My hat goes off to them. I urge everyone to support this wonderful organization.
