I have seen several productions put forth by Wild Rose Theatre Company and the quality of the shows was excellent! The talent, dedication and professionism of the cast and support crew was obvious! They truly are community theater at its best.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

leaving the theater feeling totally entertained and with a full appreciation of the theatrical arts! I can't afford going to shows on Broadway --community theater has always been my preference since I feel more intimate with the performers.

Wonderful! They did Fiddler On The Roof and I was amazed. I went back to see it 4 times taking family and friends each time. The voices of the actors were so amazing. There was a scene where the daughter leaves her father at the station to go to her husband in Siberia and my young neice just cried her eyes out. It really was very moving and real. They should do more because they're a great night out.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Fiddler on the Roof and Jerry's Girls.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Can't think of anything.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

finding out that local theater groups are just as good as professional Broadway stars

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Pleasant and full of personality.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Light up the stars.

Ways to make it better...

my chair was more comfortable

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

Raising money like everyone else.

I had the pleasure of participating in both of their productions as a principal performer. In both instances, I had the opportunities to work with talented people who shared a love and interest in theater. The thrill of being involved in a production of as high a level of excellence as Fiddler on the Roof is imeasurable. The audience responses to both performances were very positive, with audience members ranging from the very young to the very old. Watching the audiences smiles and hearing their laughter and tears was very special for me.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

My growth as a performer and ability to work as a part of a team to produce a quality production that provides affordable exposure of theater to the local community.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

want us to be able to find a permanent venue to put on our performances

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

The high level of professionalism of my peers as well as the joy I derive from sharing my passion for theater with others who share the same love of theater. I also charish all of the friendships I made in the process along the way.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

fun, focused, dedicated, organized, and talented.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

provide higher quality theater performances with professional level sets, props, musicians, lighting, a larger venue, larger advertsing budget, costumes. this would ensure that there would be a local theater company in Riverdale for years to come.

Ways to make it better...

we were not on such a tight budget.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

financial

One thing I'd also say is that...

it would be such a positive thing for the community to have a local theater company where people can regularly attend affordable, high quality theater productions.

The quality of a good show experience stays with both an audience and those people lucky enough to be involved in the production for a very long time. It has been my great pleasure to be involved with all Wild Rose productions onstage or off and count the cast and crew as some of the best friendships I've made. You can see the enthusiasm on stage - talent without the "tude" that has harmed so many theater groups in the past. I have high hopes that the future will be filled with providing more quality shows to entertain the community, benefit performances to encourage volunteerism, and workshops to encourage the craft. I'm hoping this campaign will allow us the voice to do the same.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

The work ethic of the Board Members to want to bring art to the community.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Give them a grant to assist.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

The creative process, from start to finish, and seeing it all come together for an audience.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Unique individuals.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Build it's own home base and solely focus on the shows and workshops.

Ways to make it better...

There was a homebase theater.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

Theater space.

One thing I'd also say is that...

Succeeding would be so very beneficial to the whole community.

I am a fan of WIld Rose for many reasons. But the first and foremost is the quality of their work. I saw a product they mounted of "Fiddler on the Roof" and thought it among the best I've seen. I'm amazed that they were able to bring it to life so effectively in a relatively small space. I look forward to seeing many more productions in the years to come. Keep up the great work!

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

The wonderful shows that I've seen.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Professional, dedicated, hardworking and very efficient. And they also are very friendly, as well.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Bring terrific community theater to a much wider audience.

I have worked with Wild Rose since its inception in 2008 and have enjoyed every aspect of it. The knowledge, skill, and love for theatre and the lives that are touched by it is what makes Wild Rose stand apart. I don't see a lot of the "diva" mentality that can sometimes come with community shows when the regulars step in. It is a wonderful family atmosphere, and I consider the people I've met through Wild Rose to be my closest friends. As Secretary to the Board for Wild Rose, I beieve we have had a wonderful and truly skilled creative staff, and have had great musical and show directors that bring out more in each person than they thought they had. Wild Rose is truly a wonderul non-profit and a huge asset to our community.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

I have met many extremely talented individuals of all ages that truly enjoyed working on a Wild Rose production.
