Why is it necessary to support art in a community theatre? Or to take it the other way, does it really make any difference in attending a community theater? The answer to this question is a big Yes. Whether a community theater is wholly amateur or semi-professional, it contributes to art and also to the community as a whole.
How is a Community Theater Useful for the Artists or the Performers?
The very first thing that community theater does is that it gives complete flexibility to the aspiring artists and the theater hobbyists to get together and go about honing their creative and craft skills. This type of theater goes a long way in creating a sense of accomplishment and in developing a community spirit. This is because the cast and the crew of the theater work towards one common goal. A community theater offers its cast a crew a second family irrespective of the fact that whether the artists or the performers choose to go home for their day jobs and families or look forward to flying to their next audition post the curtain falls. There is a certain support system created by a community theater for its artists. On the other hand, the artists performing for the theater take pride in contributing towards art in the community.
