Hiland Ho!

The Hiland Theatre is getting a much-needed spit-and-shine. As part of this ongoing renovation, a photo-mural is being designed to cover the entire front of the building. Organizers want to include as many photographs of local performers and performing arts groups as possible. Images will need to be sharp because most of them will be reproduced at life-size or larger. Want some free publicity? Send your shots of local musicians, actors, singers, dancers, etc. to Eric Sipfle at or call 238-8325.
