SENATE RESOLUTION NO. 16

(By Senators Foster, McCabe, Wells, Sprouse, Bailey, Green and Stollings)


Recognizing the Children's Theatre of Charleston on its 75th anniversary.

Whereas, Miss Sarah Spencer, a teacher in the Kanawha County school system and an advocate for the exposure of children to live theater, founded the Children's Theatre of Charleston as an outgrowth of her drama class; and
Whereas, Miss Spencer believed, and the many volunteers at the Children's Theatre of Charleston still believe, that any type of exposure to theater, as an audience member, an actor or stagehand, greatly enriched the lives of all involved; and
Whereas, The Children's Theatre of Charleston was designated in 1961, by a Gubernatorial Proclamation to be the official Children's Theatre of West Virginia; and
Whereas, The Children's Theatre of Charleston continues to foster the dream of Miss Sarah Spencer by celebrating its seventy- fifth season of bringing art of theater to the child and the child to the center of the theater experience; therefore, be it
Resolved by the Senate:
That the Senate hereby recognizes the Children's Theatre of Charleston on its 75th anniversary; and, be it
Further Resolved, That the Senate expresses to the Children's Theatre of Charleston its best wishes for continued success as the official children's theater of West Virginia, by fostering the development, education and interest of children through the live theater experience; and, be it
Further Resolved, That the Clerk is hereby directed to forward a copy of this resolution to the appropriate officials of the Children's Theatre of Charleston.
