Community Theatre-Come and Join the Fun! -- by Mary Cherry





A lot of people think they can’t do community theatre for a variety of reasons-they’re too shy, or they can’t act or sing. Trust me-if you try it once, you’ll be bitten by the theatre bug and be hooked for life.
Community theatre needs people with many different talents. Of course, we have people normally associated with theatre-artists, singers, dancers, costumers and actors. But we need many other people to have successful productions. We need people who are good at organization, shopping (who’s not good at shopping?), accounting, set design and construction, make-up and hair, and painting, to name a few.
We can use the talents of the whole family because there is something for everyone. After all your hard work, everyone gets to come and watch the production they helped create. How cool is that? Along the way, everyone has made friends and contributed to the community’s quality of life.
We often hear how people today are becoming more isolated as they spend more time on their phones and computers. We are all guilty of spending too much time with our heads down instead of getting out in our community. As someone who has been involved in community theatre all my life, I have seen the transformation that comes over someone as they realize they love doing this.
Encore Theatre Company is open to anyone with a desire to participate. All you have to do is come to a meeting and volunteer to help. We will find your hidden talents. The amount of time you give is up to you. Any amount of time is appreciated. We meet the first Tuesday of every month at 6 pm at 1176 HWY 17 South (the former Wonder Bread building). For information, call me at 264-5060. I’ll be happy to answer any questions you might have.
