I came to Prime Stage with my daughter to see a play 5 years ago and we both got "hooked". My daughter watched young actors playing out a story and she said "I want to do that"! She auditioned for a show, got the part and the rest is history, so to say. My volunteering started with helping to decorate the window for a display for the play, then ushering, then selling concessions, to being an advisor for the teen board and to now to be able to say "Proud Board Member". I have watched my daughter grow with her involvement with Prime Stage - her poise, her independent nature, her interest in literature and now her community service project in helping to bring awareness about teen dating violence to her peers. The atmosphere created by the people involved with Prime Stage has been very positive and nurturing of all the teen's individual skills and talents while helping to bring literature to life for middle school students and their families. I believe in what the company is trying to do and highly recommend involvement in any way!

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

that I have grown as a mother, person and a more out-spoken leader in my community.
