Person: Lake Dillon Theatre a community treasure
August 7, 2013
A theatrical treasure
My wife and I are now in our sixth summer of residence in Silverthorne. Six years ago friends introduced us to the Lake Dillon Theatre Company. We first became fans, then financial patrons and now, in addition, we are volunteers for this precious community treasure. The productions at the LDTC are first class — witness the many awards received. This theater now has earned a national reputation, and outstanding performers vie for the opportunity to display their talents on our stage.
Facts support the reality that top-flight theater is vital to community good health — both social and economic. The Lake Dillon Theatre Company has generated more than $750,000 in economic impact for the county this year and this number is growing.
Every successful enterprise has a champion and ours is Chris Alleman, the theater's artistic director. He has been the inspiration for this community gem for the past 10 years as it has grown in artistic acclaim, in county and Front Range audiences and in significant cultural and economic importance to all of us in Summit County. Our hats are off to Chris and the entire Lake Dillon Theatre Company for a job well done.
