Review from Guidestar
March 14, 2010

My two children began taking improvisation and acting classes in their early teens at NRACT in 2002, and became more involved as time went on. They have both appeared in plays at the theatre, and have continued their interest in drama at their colleges. When the theatre was facing a financial crisis three years ago, my daughter asked that our family make a donation to NRACT instead of giving her any Christmas presents - she told us that the caring and talented people at NRACT were her second family. We did make a donation, and I volunteered to help with fundraising, which led to an invitation to join the Board of Directors. In my three years on this Board, I have seen the theatre grow. This community theatre began as a labor of love by a dedicated group of actors and artists, but their business sense was, well, limited. Now, there is a shared vision among the artistic folks and the 'business types' they've recruited for the Board - together, we've instituted some cost-cutting measures, budgets, and expansion of programs. We have managed to become the second family to a new wave of middle-schoolers (and others), and we're reaching out to underserved groups out here in the 'burbs. Money is still tight (duh, we're a non-profit), but we'll get by, with a bit of help. Thank you for considering a donation to North Raleigh Arts & Creative Theatre.

My family's first experience at NRACT was attending a show by the improv group, Raleigh Village Idiots. When auditions for the next children’s production were posted, my oldest daughter decided to attend. She ended up performing in Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland. We found the director and all of the staff and volunteers at NRACT to be wonderfully supportive. It was such a great experience that she convinced my youngest daughter to join her at the next audition. Our family has now been involved in acting, painting scenery, sewing costumes, ushering and odd jobs for seven productions. Our teen has also been involved with the Teen Troupe. We have found everyone at NRACT to be very welcoming to newcomers and very dedicated to teaching and producing quality shows.

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

Watching a diverse group of kids and adults working together to express themselves creatively on the stage and behind the scenes. It is also the best place in Raleigh for a child's first trip to see a play.

Of course, I enjoy watching all of the kids learn and perform. I also enjoy listening to the young audience members come out of show excited about the play that they have just seen.

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

always helpful, enthusiastic and welcoming.

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

make improvements in the building. Offer scholarships for classes and camps.
