‘Our Town’ Tribute to Bill Meyer

WestportNow.com Image
The Westport Community Theatre (WCT) tonight held a fundraiser to benefit a newly established scholarship honoring Westporter Bill Meyer, a volunteer for WCT and many other causes. It included a pre-show reception at the Westport Historical Society followed by a staged reading of “Our Town” by Thornton Wilder in the Town Hall theater with many local politicians and well-known Westporters joining the cast. The scholarship will be given in Meyer’s name to a Staples High School theater department senior “who personifies the spirit of volunteerism that Bill lived every day.” Meyer died in June 2014 at age 85.
