As a mother of a child that started out terribly shy, ESL has down wonders in helping her be more confident. The teachers I've encountered are in tune with how to deal with children, and have impressed me with the way they make all children feel welcome and special.

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

that everyone is so welcoming and enthusiastic. Children can spot insincerity instantly. ESL is genuine in their love of what they do in the arts.

When I saw my first ESL production on a tiny stage in a very small church, I was blown away by the professional production, the acting and staging. What had been done with so little far exceeded expectations. A few years later when I met the founders and suggested a fundraiser for the CAA, I was even more impressed by their commitment to quality theater. From when I saw my first ESL play through the summer of 2007, I had the opportunity to support, act, and be entertained.

From the first ESL play I saw through the summer of 2007, I had the opportunity to support, act, and be entertained. ESL is committed to bringing quality theater to the Boston Metrowest community. They provide a place for theater and music classes for young people and adults. They bring off Broadway quality theater to an audience at affordable rates in smaller venues so that audiences become immersed in the theater experience. With their move to the CAA building and the beginning of fund raising for the new theater, they are on the cusp of becoming a major venue for excellence in theater. I would encourage any theater lover looking for a place to support to look hard and long at Enter Stage Left. You will find a place where your donation joined with others will become the foundation for a theater who's name will be known for quality and excellence in performance. I now live miles from ESL, but my heart is still there and I plan to be a consistent donor and sometimes dream of getting a windfall that I could share with ESL to move them closer to the theater building they need and their performances deserve.

The Great!

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

performances. As a cast member of All My Sons, I saw the impact of an important drama on members of the community, both older and younger, who were moved by the timelessness of this Arthur Miller play.

Ways to make it better...

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

find professional non profit fundraisers for them.

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

being able to bring affordable quality theater to a community whose members can't all get to major cities.

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

dedicated and professional beyond expectations.

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

become a major regional theater that could not just produce major plays but also become a venue for new playwrights.

Ways to make it better...

Enter Stage Left had the funding to build a fully equipped theater of their own.

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

funding of the size that will bring in the $1 million needed to build a theater.

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

The founders of Enter Stage Left have the artistic ability to present excellent work as well as the management skills to achieve a lot with a little. Given the resources they can be the major regional theater of Eastern Massachusetts.

ESL Theater produces quality live entertainment. I have attended many programs/shows and have never been disappointed; in fact, these programs/shows have exceeded my expectations for productions from a community non-profit group.
