There is a lot to love about theater, community theater specifically. I imagine if I were to ask 20 people what they most love about community theater, I'd receive 20 different responses. It's that personal.
Erica D. of the Mid Hudson Valley Theatre Blog -- mhvtheater.blogspot.com -- has written a post that lists the reasons she loves community theater. She graciously has allowed the Civic Theatre of Greater Lafayette blog to link to that post, which can be found here.
Although New York State is a bit of a distance from Lafayette, Indiana, it's clear community theater is loved in both, between both and definitely beyond both ... and often for the same reasons. When you read Erica's post, consider how many of her Top 10 reasons would be included in yours.
Which leads to the question behind this post: What are your favorite things about community theater? Leave a response below, if you wish.
Look for more commentary and opinion to be included on this blog. Some of it will be written by yours truly and other Civic Theatre bloggers. Some, as in this instance, may be links from other theater blogs. This blog will continue to promote Civic volunteers, Civic productions -- Mainstage, Civic Youth Theatre and readings -- and special events, but it will also offer more points of view about what theater is, can be and more.
