Clarification on need for Grass Valley theater company

Foothill Theater Company is a good theater company. In response to Phillip Sneed’s letter to the editor regarding my letter, “Grass Valley needs a good theater company,” I wish to clarify that I did not negate any of the wonderful successes that the Foothill Theater in Nevada City is responsible for.

I have professional admiration for the leadership of Phillip Sneed of his very successful company. The productions there are much better than most local companies throughout the West. His ability to sustain it both financially and artistically earns my personal admiration.

My letter referred to the need of Grass Valley, specifically, for a very good theater company. One that, in my vision, would be equal to A.C.T. in San Francisco, the South Coast Theater Company in Orange County, or the Alley Theater in Texas.

There would be a difference.
