I believe wholeheartedly in the power of community theatre. Sure it’s a nice thing for the local community as an inexpensive form of entertainment, but more so, it’s an amazing place to explore, grow, and form relationships with a diverse group of people. As a newly divorced mother with an adolescent son I wasn’t able to enroll him in the usual extra curricular activities. We found the local community theatre and I couldn’t be more grateful for all that it has given us.
The theatre asked only for volunteers, there was no fee to join and no knowledge requirement. We could both be involved, neither of us were stuck sitting on the sidelines watching the other participate so we learned and grew together. We were asked to do only what we were comfortable with and although we both became more outgoing over the years, being behind the scenes was the only place we were comfortable in the be
ginning. But above all, it gave us a place to belong and a family outside of our own that offered unlimited emotional support and unconditional caring. The bonds formed there will be with us for the rest of our lives.
Please support a Theatre in your community.
