MUSIC THEATRE OF WICHITA INC
February 20, 2010
MTW is a rare find and a cultural treasure. As a seasoned travel journalist, I see it as a remarkable attraction with a very positive impact on the community and on the region in general.
Obviously, MTW contributes to the local economy by creating employment opportunities, but they also draw attendance from the entire Midwest, and that creates more jobs in the hospitality industry. I've traveled from California on several occasions to attend performances - it's closer than New York and just as good.
Wayne Bryan also makes a huge effort to educate local young people in the theatre arts - thereby expanding their options for career opportunities
The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...
hard working and dedicated. They seem energized by their committment to educate, to preserve an important aspect of America's cultural tradition, and to provide entertainment that families can enjoy together.
