August 9, 2013

Showing his support for the arts, State Sen. Art Linares (at right) had a cameo role in the free Shoreline Arts Alliance production of the Shakespeare comedy Much Ado About Nothing performed August 8 on the Guilford green.

“The area arts scene is thriving, thanks to the great work done all year long by everyone at the Shoreline Arts Alliance,” Sen. Linares said. “This is the 12th anniversary of the Shakespeare on the Shoreline program – and it is better than ever, due to the tremendous support of our communities. We had a lot of fun up on stage, and the audience enjoyed it. The cast and crew are so talented. I thank the arts alliance for the opportunity. As someone who grew up on the shoreline, I think these types of events and performances are what makes our region so special.”

Sen. Linares noted that the Shoreline Arts Alliance emphasizes activities for participants of all ages.

“Exposure to the arts – I feel – is crucial to a well-rounded education, and it is something I will continue to speak out for up at the State Capitol,” Sen. Linares said. “Our region – with destinations such as the Ivoryton Playhouse and the Goodspeed Opera House – can boast of some of the best regional theaters in the world. These theaters drive visitors and tourists to our area, and that activity provides a boost to local businesses. I will continue to do all I can to help promote and support the arts in our region.”
