Special Note: Bob Dumon captured a moment between former Theater Manager, Tom Landen and Executive Director, Angelina Doyle. Tom, known as NBCT’s Renaissance Man, was a major contributor to NBCT’s success and mentor to Angelina. His talents, knowledge, and love of people has been the foundation that NBCT prides itself on today. He passed the gauntlet on to Angelina after he retired in 2009. This was the last Awards Gala Tom will attend as he is moving on to his next adventure in Wilmington. We celebrate this phenomenal man and thank him for his many years of dedication to the NBCT family and the arts!
