A great show

To the Editor: Both the December 2012 production of “A Christmas Carol” and this month’s production of “Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland,” by the Corsicana Children’s (Theater) Company reveals C. David Hill’s unique contribution.

As teacher of the youth theater classes, and director of both productions, he has proven to benefit the program in three ways. First, he facilitates a joyous experience for youth and parents by virtue of his joi de vivre, strength for effective teaching at three levels, and hospitable spirit to include the parents in productions.

Second, he adamantly proclaimed the importance of reading literature, for “Without literature, we would not have theater.” At both the December and March productions in the pre-show speech, he and a youth drew the number of an audience member under 12 who would win the book that the production was based upon.

Third, Hill enthusiastically promoted the “main stage” season productions in his pre-show speeches. In December, he happily forecast the entire 42nd season, saying he had seen every show, and that they’re all “kid friendly.”

“Bring your young ones to the main stage shows,” he told us then.

A few weeks ago, he told us of “The 39 Steps up in May.” It will have aspects of Alfred Hitchcock, Monty Python, romance, and an incredible slew of characters performed by just five actors!

Congratulations to all the young people and their parents and guardians, for making time to bring literature to life once again! Studies have shown that participating in live theatrical projects builds confidence and teamwork skills in the individuals. Add to those gifts the opportunity to work with the fine person of Hill — whose recent stellar acting role on the main stage as that of a special needs person is so memorable — and we know the youth, their families, their schools, and the entire community are blessed.

    To the Editor: According to a Gallup poll, 73 percent of the American people are in favor of term limits.
    If you are one of those Americans favoring term limits there is good news. Term limits exist — they are called ELECTIONS.

    Now that the holidays for 2013 are behind us and we’ve had a brief moment to reflect back on all that has transpired, I can say that we at The Salvation Army are humbled and amazed by how this community came together to help meet the needs of so many struggling people.

    As a volunteer with the Angels of Corsicana Troop Support, most of my time all year is spent on items, especially Christmas cards, to fill the stockings when we pack in December.
