I first came to the El Paso Playhouse in 2003 to watch a show. Six months later, in the summer of 2004 I was in my first production there. Since then, I have been in over 25 productions as director, actor, producer, technician, etc... I became a Board Member in 2006 and have been Vice-President for three years. This theatre is a not-for-profit organization that has been serving El Paso for over 45 years. From day one, I have seen the dedication and passion that its volunteers have, always leaving room for improvement. Always trying to surpass expectations and provide the best quality shows ranging from dramas to comedies, murder mysteries, musicals and children's shows. Its volunteers are the life and blood of the theatre and it is thanks to them and the dedicated and loyal patrons that the EPPH is still standing. The doors are always open to the public, welcoming people who are interested in volunteering. May it be for set construction, concessions, backstage assistants or acting. No one is turned away. For the past six years, the El Paso Playhouse has been my home. And its Board Members, volunteers and employee are my family. It has been cheer bliss to have the opportunity to learn and grow in this artistic and inspirational atmosphere. I believe this theatre is an El Paso treasure that will stand the test of time.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
seeing the time and dedication its volunteers put into the success of this wonderful theatre.
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
expand the size of the building, in order to bring in more people.
What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...
their doors are always open to new people. Everyone is willing to lend a hand and help you learn.
The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...
extremely helpful and devoted. Passionate about their contribution.
If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...
make its building much larger and provide the best entertainment to everyone in the Borderland and from all over the world.
Ways to make it better...
more people knew about the Playhouse, if the word was spread.
In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...
the fact that money is scarce. They live on donations and grants given by wonderful people and organizations.
One thing I'd also say is that...
I have changed as a person and as an artist by working with the wonderful people that walk through its doors.
