Letter: Passion can create change

To the editor:

When I read about our Rec Players’ show that we might not have had (“Show must go on,” July 13) I was very saddened. Learning that there are people in our community that will not allow this to happen are to be commended for their efforts.

Thank-you to Jonathan O’Geary for getting this done.

If you missed “Oliver!” you certainly missed out on an outstanding play that had so much amazing talent. To JoEllen Nowell, Mark Hopper and all the wonderful cast, the chorus, orchestra and the production staff, thank-you for all your hard work in presenting such an excellent production of “Oliver!” right here in Henderson. You were as good as I have seen anywhere, including New York.

We are so fortunate to have our new performing arts center to provide the arts to all our citizens in our community.

If you want something to happen or change in our community, just get passionate about it and work to get it changed. The Rec Players are such a blessing for this community.
