My wife and I have been attending summer productions since the late 90's, and I am now a board member and involved in hiring our artistic director and her staff and in raising money to support this wonderful asset to the Dorset/ Manchester community. The productions are varied, ranging from the hilarious to the thought provoking and from classics to new plays. We are very fortunate to have a professional theater of this quality in our town and to have the visionary and energetic leadership of Dina Janis, our artistic director.

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

attending plays each summer and in actively participating in the governance of the organization through my board work.

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

working with the artistic leadership, actors, production staff and interns, who we have hosted at our home each summer.

I have been an actress, patron, volunteer usher, and assistant house manager at DTF between 1993-2002. The theatre played an invaluable role in my young life. The productions are always highly professional, staging a wonderful mixture of old favorites and nurturing new works. The children's programming has had many incarnations, but as a young adult growing up in a small town, it was the outreach of the late 90's that has had the most lasting impact in my life.

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

my experiences as a teenager acting in the summer children's theater, then later as an apprentice and for many years as an audience member.

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

the nurturing community. New plays in an old town.
