WTH’s ‘Orphan Train’ production schedule changed

“The Orphan Train,” by Liz Orndorff and Scott Brown, will only be produced Friday-Sunday, Dec. 1-3 and Dec. 8-10 at West T. Community Theatre in Danville; the third weekend’s performance has been canceled. Due to an unforeseen medical emergency with Brown, the play’s musical composer and production accompanist, the schedule had to be changed in order to find a replacement. The theater apologizes for any inconvenience this may cause its patrons, and wishes a speedy recovery to Brown. 

For anyone who has already purchased tickets for the canceled weekend of Dec. 15-17, and would like information on being accommodated, call the theater’s box office at (859) 319-0205. To purchase tickets for Dec. 1-3 or Dec. 8-10, visit or call the box office. 

For more about the history of “The Orphan Train,” see Dave Fairchild’s Danville Rotary Report on the Business page, A6, featuring a talk by the playwright, Liz Orndorff. 


In the story “Kroger tax appeal impacting school district” that appeared on page A1 of Friday’s Advocate-Messenger, the numbers concerning the amount of property tax Kroger pays are incorrect. The difference in property taxes owed between the assessed value of Kroger’s property ($5.5 million) and what Kroger believes the assessment should be ($2.75 million) is about $37,000. Out of that $37,000 difference, about $26,000 would go to the Danville Independent School District if paid. The total amount of property tax Kroger could pay on the $5.5 million assessment would be around $74,000.

In the story “Soul of 2nd St. photographic exhibit looking for additions” on Nov. 25, Michael Hughes should have been identified as a board member of the Heart of Danville, not the Convention and Visitors Bureau.

In the story “McDowell Place creates calendar…” Rose Dickerson was misidentified as Ruth Young; Virginia Bartle was misidentified as Rachel Dunsmore. The calendar was created by Bruce Jones Design.

In Tuesday’s “Thumbs Up, Thumbs Down” column, the Boyle County Sheriff was incorrectly identified. The sheriff is Derek Robbins.
