Theatre West Virginia Rebounds from Tough Times


 Theatre West Virginia has rebounded from tough financial times and is looking forward to next year’s season.

The Register-Herald reports that more than 5,000 people attended 17 performances of the outdoor historical drama “Hatfields and McCoys” at Cliffside Amphitheatre at Grandview.

In past seasons, the theater company performed both “Hatfields and McCoys” and another historical drama, “Honey in the Rock.” The company also had performed Broadway productions and productions aimed at children.

Theatre West Virginia had ceased operations in September 2013 because of financial problems. The Legislature allocated $125,000 for the organization this year.

General manager Scott Hill says the organization’s board plans to meet next week to discuss this year’s successes and ways to improve upon them next year.
