Community theatre enriches the lives of those who take an active part in it, as well as those in the community who benefit from live theatre productions. While some see it as long hours away from family, the endless rehearsals, the gas money, the drama (both onstage and off), the rejection and the joy. Why do they do it?
Every person has different reasons. The camaraderie with people that share your love. People who become lifelong friends. And friends who become family. Maybe Oscar Wilde spelled it out when he said, “I regard Theatre as the greatest of all art forms, the most immediate way in which a human being can share with another the sense of what it is to be a human being.”
