Putting a Face on Theatre
This upcoming weekend a handful of people dedicated to community theatre will be meeting in Arlington, Texas, to decide on the best way to keep helping community theatre. The American Association of Community Theatre (AACT) is having their winter board meetings this weekend, and, as a member of the board, I will be there. The AACT provides a lot of services to its members (discounts on script licensing, discounts on theatrical supplies, insurance, a biennial performance festival, and more) but we're trying to do more. We want to make sure that as an organization, we're offering our members what they need to produce more and better theatre. (You can kinda see how that dovetails with Stage Directions' mission...)
And that's why I'm writing this blog post. What do you need to create better theatre? What would help you out? How can we help? Tell me what you'd like to see an organization do to help you out, and I promise I'll bring it up in the meetings!
