It was my first taste of theatre and it left me craving more....
...and here I am president of the Carroll Arts Council/Community Theatre.
What a journey it has been.
Now we have the Black Box Studio. It's not glamorous nor is it top of the line state of the art -BUT- it is intimate and all ours to use whenever we want. We rehearse there and perform there. We also let other groups use it for small performances.
The times have indeed changed- it's getting harder to find people who are willing to volunteer their time to put on a BIG MUSICAL! I understand that- two parents working, kids involved in more activities than were available 30 years ago and musicals are very time consuming.
So things are changing some more- here are two of the changes we have to make the arts accessible to more people-
- Once Upon a Time - this is an opportunity for kids in grades 4th-8th to work with one of our seasoned players to learn all about acting and producing a play with hands on experiences in all aspects of the production form auditioning, character development, costumes, make-up and set design.
- Acting Out! - a group of performers available for corporate entertainments with several options from murder mystery dinner theatre to small musical revues.
Come play with us!
