Re "Breton is missing the mooing" (Letters, March 8): Letter writer Robert A. Dell'Agostino's lament about the arts in our community indicates that he has missed out on the thriving performing arts community in our town and the national reputation many of our organizations have.

Since 1951, Music Circus has brought Tony-award winning actors here and produced nationally-recognized musicals. Professional actors clamor to be on the Music Circus stage each year. Broadway Sacramento brings national tours of Tony-winning musicals to the region. The Sacramento Ballet, and Two in Tune provide stellar theater experience.

The many locally-produced theaters--such as Capital Stage, B Street, Big Idea and New Helvetia--attract nationally-recognized actors and directors, and give local actors a chance to perfect their craft. Perhaps Dell-Agostino needs to take advantage of these local arts organizations, which entertain and enlighten us, and significantly contribute to the local economy.
