Reviews for Lamb Arts LTD-LAMB Arts Regional Theatre/School
LAMB Theatre is an unforgettable experience as a student, actor, or theatre-goer. The Theatre always makes sure to put on a professional show that goes above and beyond the public's expectations. I would highly recommend LAMB to anyone interested.
I'm a professional freelance theatre artist - currently making theatre all over the country. LAMB Arts Regional Theatre was instrumental in my development as a young artist. The school fostered my love of theatre and challenged me, offering excellent preparation for my college auditions while giving me professional guidance. The Wooley's were the first teachers in my life to show me that a professional career in the arts was possible. Additionally, they continue to provide an enormous amount of value to the community around them: artistically enriching the lives of patrons, students, as well as artists in Sioux City with tons of talent that needs to be shared. Coming in contact with LAMB was, by far, the most valuable moment of my career. It gave me a solid foundation, investing me with the passion and skillset to keep growing.
I have recently become involved with LAMB Arts as an actor in Mainstage productions, as well as a volunteer on fundraising committees. LAMB continues to raise the bar on artistically produced plays and musicals that rival any seen at professional playhouses in major cities. They couple most plays in the season with a "Projects of Hope" night; an opportunity for other area non-profits to use the night's production income as a means to fundraise for their own organization. From infants to adults, LAMB provides a welcoming "home away from home" and a creative environment to learn and grow.
I have had the priviage to work with this organization for the last 8 years. The service they provide to the community is invaluable. The theatre and school are a place where kids and adults can come and feel apart of something important. People can come to explore and grow as individuals. I truly appreciate the safe haven they provide for children in the community.
Our daughter is 9 and has been involved with Lamb for several years already. She absolutely loves it! The environment is great for learning and welcoming to all who want to participate. We are donors as well - to keep this local gem going strong for our daughter and future generations.
Our involvement with Lamb Arts has been via our grandchildren's participation in theatre productions. The opportunity available to young people through Lamb is extraordinary. They can't wait to attend and perform with the superlative direction of Russ and Diana Wooley and their exemplary staff and volunteers. Vital life lessons of hard work, discipline and responsibility has resulted in gains in self confidence and pride being demonstrated by our grandchildren. Watching thirty plus kids and young adults clean the theater after the last performance was outstanding. What a team and how well they represent Lamb. Lamb is a community art cultural gem!
This school offers a great range of classes and puts on excellent shows!
I just enjoyed my first play at LAMB Theater when I went to see Fiddler On the Roof Jr. My husband and I had a wonderful time and look forward to seeing many more shows there.
Lamb is my daughters home away from home. The environment is warm and nurturing and she looks forward to being there. The shows are fantastic and the level of talent in our community is outstanding!
My kids have been involved in the Lamb Theatre school since they were toddlers. The oldest is graduating form high school this year. The skills and confidence they have both gained is immeasurable. The professionalism of the shows, whether children's theater or main stage, is incredible for such a small city and adds so much to the quality of life in Sioux City!
