House Resolution 916, introduced by Perry and adopted unanimously by the House of Representatives, recognized June 3rd-9th, 2018, as “Community Theatre Week” in Pennsylvania.
“Community theatre organizations bring the arts to life for audiences of all ages and socio-economic backgrounds,” said Perry, D-Bucks. “The passionate individuals who make up these organizations introduce us to new worlds and help us understand the human experience.”
Perry recognized the following local community theatre representatives in the House chamber:
- From Newtown Arts Company, Marcia Wittmann, president of the board of directors and an actor and producer, and Lisa Reiser, vice president of the board and a producer, costumer and social media chairwoman.
- From ActorsNET, in Morrisville, Maryalice Rubins-Topoleski, president of the board of directors, and an actor, director, choreographer and producer, and Hayley Rubins-Topoleski, board of directors and director of marketing, actor, producer and director.
“We appreciate the efforts of everyone, from the actors on stage to the behind-the-scenes crew, who put together community programs that educate and enrich our lives. I’m pleased to be able to shine a spotlight on their work,” Perry said.
