The theatre is the only institution in the world which has been dying for four thousand years and has never succumbed. It requires tough and devoted people to keep it alive. Community theatre is a prime example of this as it is fuelled by like-minded people who are passionate to keep it alive and thriving. Theatre provides a community with an outlet to play, and, of course, to be entertained. It brings all types of people together and allows those with dreams beyond the norm to make them a reality.
Benefits of joining an amateur theatre:
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. On either side of the footlights, those involved represent a diversity of age, culture, life experience, and a strong appreciation of the importance of the arts.
