Bob Horner becomes a member of Town Theatre board

COLUMBIABob Horner, with Sowell Gray Stepp & Laffitte, has been elected to the Board of Directors of Town Theatre/Columbia Stage Society.

In its 92nd season, Town Theatre is America’s oldest continuously operating community theater.
It offers Columbia actors a chance to work with professionals, while providing Columbia audiences with the opportunity to enjoy five performances a season, many of them South Carolina premieres. The youth theatre program, which includes summer camps, culminates in live productions that allow Columbia children and teens to demonstrate the skills they’ve learned.

“I am so pleased to be a part of such a wonderful program with such a rich history,” Horner said. “Town Theatre not only provides the Midlands with quality entertainment, but it also allows the next generation the opportunity to become involved in the performing arts. Being on the Board allows me the opportunity to give back to the greater Columbia community.”

Horner is a graduate of the University of South Carolina and the University of South Carolina School of Law, where he was inducted into the Order of Wig and Robe.

His practice areas at Sowell Gray include professional liability and ethics; product liability; healthcare litigation; construction litigation; commercial transportation and trucking; and appellate advocacy.
