CLARKSBURG, W.Va. – The West Virginia Community Development Hub has launched a storytelling project that highlights two Clarksburg-area groups.
The Monticello Ongoing Revitalization Effort and the Vintage Theatre Company were two out of the five subjects included in the documentary. The project, called “redefined”, hopes to spotlight West Virginians who are leading efforts to make a positive difference in the community.
“It was a least a 12 hour day. But, I think it really helped them capture what it is we do. We educate, we rehearse, we perform, and they were able to track us through the day with that,” said Jason A. Young, Founder of the Vintage Theatre Company.
Officials with both organizations said they’re happy to have been selected and featured for their work.
“I think it’s a great opportunity to shine a light on what we’re doing down here, but it also, hopefully, will inspire others to get involved,” said Sherri James, Community Coordinator for Monticello Ongoing Revitalization Effort.
