Tryon Little Theater recently received a donation through the Polk County Community Foundation Unrestricted Grant Fund to purchase seven wireless microphones for use in its productions.&bsp; With a grant awarded earlier this summer from the Carolina Foothills chamber of commerce, this gives the theater a total of ten new mics.

The wireless microphones are an important component of the whole theater experience and can add so much to the audience enjoyment of a show, says Susan Kocher, past president of TLT. There are many expenses when it comes to putting on a particular play or musical, from set pieces to costumes to special backdrops, etc., but the microphones will be used again and again in many different shows, enhancing the quality and professionalism of our productions.

The Kirby Fund has been an ongoing supporter of the annual Summer Youth Theater program, and the Arthur M. and Frances H. Wilhelm Fund has also supported the youth theater.
