Council should support SC Repertory Company

I urge Hilton Head Island Town Council not to accept the recommendation of the town's Accommodations Tax Advisory Committee and instead to vote to award funding to the South Carolina Repertory Company.

This gem of a theater company benefits local residents and visitors alike with its intelligent programming for the thinking theatergoer. Its excellent, highly professional productions, combined with other island arts activities, help make Hilton Head a desirable cultural travel destination.

An increasing number of tourists want more than beautiful scenery, great beaches, golf and tennis when they vacation. They also want their minds to be stimulated and challenged. The South Carolina Repertory Company excels at this. Town Council should continue to fund an organization that is so valuable to our island community.
