These two organizations are working hand-in-hand in an effort to revitalize Downtown Harriman and restore the Princess Theater.

This first ever Media Production class, with 17 enrolled, met at 6:30 Monday evening with Mr. Landry getting to know the class, their backgrounds, interests, and hopes for the class. Their first assignment was a little "acting" for the camera!The class project will culminate on May 16th with a public showcase of their work. Regional entertainment will also be presented to make up what promises to be a very entertaining evening at the RSCC Theater. This program will kick off public awareness and support for the restoration of the Princess Theater and the plan to make this area an arts education and conferencing center, with the express intention of revitalizing downtown Harriman by bringing business and attention back to Harriman.

Stay tuned...a lot is about to happen!

I'm curious to see what the class produces. Looks like things are picking up and moving along quick.

Well, hell, I thought I'd posted something here but I guess I didn't. Anyway, it all looks great.

What I said before was that we used to have a guy named Bob Phillips who did a Charles Keralt type show out of Dallas. Sounds like your guy there in the picture.

Sister Grimm - stay tuned and I'll have that info for you here when it happens. I know that they haven't been printed yet, but Gary Baker is working on it.
