Work worth supporting

| Saturday, April 22, 2017 9:00 p.m

My family and I recently had the privilege to see two local high school plays, “Singin’ in the Rain” at Norwin and “Beauty and the Beast” at South Allegheny. It is amazing to watch the drive and ambition of these young, talented singers and dancers performing to the delight of the crowd.

The hard work and passion of all those involved is evident as they hit the stage. These hardworking actors, actresses and stage crew and orchestra pit members are destined for great things. Although this is just a sampling of local high school musicals, I have seen the same wonderful result at local Catholic and public high school performances.

It is extremely important to keep up local funding of the arts and to patronize businesses and school-based fundraisers that support these talented young people through these performances. A big “thank you” to all of the directors, cast and crew members, and musicians for sharing their talents with the community, and to local businesses that support this great work.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
