The Wilson theater family lost a bright young rising star with the recent passing of Layla Leann Overby at age 17.

Layla was involved with ACT For Youth and the Playhouse of Wilson, and her beautiful smile, sparkling personality and positive outlook on life were always a joy to behold. There’s an empty spot on the Boykin Center stage.
