Singing the praises of new dinner theater

POST INDEPENDENT OPINION

It’s a strange juxtaposition – a dinner theater in a former church.But then again, is it? The old stone St. Stephen’s church in downtown Glenwood Springs will echo again with praise and singing – if the part requires it!The new owners are to be commended for their plan to bring a dinner theater to Glenwood with the purchase of the church. One of the Grand Stone Dinner Theatre business partners, Patrick Holloran, is correct when he says there’s lots to do during the day in the Glenwood area, but not a lot of entertainment venues in the evenings. The dinner theater can put Glenwood on the map in the cultural scene of the valley, and it’s only a good thing.Some people might think Glenwood is not ready to support theater on such a level, or that it’s not the right venue for the area. Theater is something that should be enjoyed by all. It shouldn’t be limited to certain towns just because that’s where it’s traditionally been. Most importantly, it’s an art form that will attract people from all walks of life. Plus, it gives the many talented individuals in the valley another place to showcase their work as actors. Kudos to David Dyer, John Goss and Patrick Holloran for their vision and dedication to the arts. There can never be too many things to do in the town of Glenwood, and the Grand Stone Dinner Theatre will be on everyone’s list for the future, making the town even more attractive for tourists and locals alike.Kudos to David Dyer, John Goss and Patrick Holloran for their vision and dedication to the arts.
