Kilian Engineering, Inc. of Henderson recently made a contribution to the Vance-Granville Community College Endowment Fund to serve as the presenting sponsor for the college’s seventh annual Dinner Theater. This year marked the first time that the event has had a presenting sponsor.
“Kilian Engineering congratulates Vance-Granville Community College and the drama program for putting together a wonderful production, and we are honored to be a part of it,” said company founder Michael Kilian. “VGCC is a real treasure in our community. The school offers our young people an affordable local option to further their education and obtain greater skills and credentials.”
Kilian Engineering is an engineering consulting firm that helps create functional and efficient design solutions. The company provides engineering services related to plumbing, mechanical, electrical, and fire alarm systems for both new construction and existing buildings. Kilian Engineering has also been a sponsor of the VGCC Endowment Fund Golf Tournament for the past several years.
“Kilian Engineering’s strong support for our Dinner Theater has helped our college stage an exciting event for our community,” said VGCC President Dr. Rachel Desmarais. “For the past half-century, local businesses have shown confidence in VGCC, allowing us to continue to enhance services to students and support economic and workforce development.”
The Dinner Theater, set for April 25 and April 26, is the first in a series of special events celebrating the 50th anniversary of Vance-Granville. Reflecting VGCC’s long history of fine arts education and community involvement, the cast for this production of Stephen Sondheim’s musical comedy, “Company,” includes students, alumni and community members. Cook Shack Catering of Louisburg will cater this special event. An anniversary cake prepared by VGCC Culinary Arts students will be served at intermission.
Tickets for the Dinner Theater are $30 each and are available through the VGCC website at www.vgcc.edu/dinnertheater.
