Signal Mountain’s 41-year-old amateur theater group and the Mountain Arts Community Center’s music festival were both singled out for praise during the town council’s regular monthly meeting Monday evening.
Things were touch and go for a while this summer at the outdoor Signal Mountain Playhouse, Councilman Dick Gee reported, where near constant rainfall threatened to turn its popular “Wizard Of Oz” production into the “Wizard of Ooze.”
However, thanks to the combined efforts of town public works employees and playhouse volunteers, he noted, performances were able to go on as planned.
Councilman Gee also read a resolution praising this year’s music festival at the Mountain Arts Community Center (MACC).
In other arts-related action, the council honored Bob Franklin of Franklin Architects for serving as MACC’s “go-to architect” for advice on everything from how to handle repairs at the facility, to which specialists to consult for particular problems.
Finally, council members unanimously approved the appointment of Palisades Road resident Judy Nowlin to serve as a member of MACC’s board of directors until Dec. 31, 2014.
