Make a strong arts community work
To The Editor:
Can the River Valley be a community rich in the performing arts? We think so!
This note is to thank those who attended and supported the Odd Couple (female version). It was the debut performance by The Paper Moon Players directed by Keith A. Grassette, held in the Mystic Theater at 49 Franklin in Rumford.
We would also like to encourage those who did not get out to experience the special Mother’s day weekend performances to stay tuned for upcoming presentations. We are in hopes that this community will embrace the arts by attending all that you can, including performances by RAAPA, School plays and presentations, The Rumford Performing Arts Committee presentations at the Town Hall Auditorium, special productions at Black Mountain, as well as the functions we provide at 49 Franklin and the Mystic Theater.
Rumford is changing – slow but sure! We invite you to be a part of it! Why spend your hard earned money to gas up your vehicle and head out of town when you can get quality food and entertainment here in town?
Our plan is to keep our people “close to home” gas up in town, dine at one of our areas eating establishments then go to a show! It takes people, to make a commitment to make a strong arts community work.
Are you willing to be part of the solution to make our community a better place to live?
We applaud the River Valley performing arts heritage, we look forward to the future, and we hope you do, too!
Scot and Cindy Grassette,
