I have been involved in live theatre for many years, including volunteering at the Vortex Theatre in various roles. I have enjoyed many excellent productions over the past 10-20 years. I especially appreciate their putting on a variety of plays, almost one a month. Among the 20 or so theatres in Albuquerque, they are clearly one of the best.

As a new board memeber, I have particapated in the Vortex theater in many different roles, Stage Manager, Director, and many others. I am generally impressed by the level of theater produced at the Vortex, it is certianly setting the standard for Theater in Albuquerque. Along with keeping the bar high, the Vortex is always pushing for more from their productions. I am pleased to be assocated with this venue. If you want to fund the arts in a ever growing city, then the Vortex is a great place to start.

As a transplant from London, fearful that New Mexico's desert might extend to theatre, I have to thank the Vortex for 35 years of paving the way for the theatrical scene that now flourishes in Albuquerque. Many, if not all, of the City's 40+ theatre companies owe a debt to the Vortex. It has consistently offered the community: the broadest range of theatrical experiences, vintage through contemporary, classical to brand new work; rich opportunities to actors, directors and technicians, ranging from local students to enthusiastic retirees; rigorously high production standards that few community theatre organizations can match; an intimate black box setting to heighten the theatregoer's experience; and an unflaggingly energetic and unfailingly approachable group of volunteers who conduct themselves like a welcoming family to all who visit the theatre. As an audience member, I have usually been impressed and always been stimulated. As an actor, I have thoroughly enjoyed the company and the audiences in every production. So much so that I was honored to be invited recently to become a Board Member and was delighted to accept. I am proud to say that out-of-town and foreign visitors whom we have taken to Vortex productions have left green with envy that we have such a theatre organization in our town.

The Vortex Theatre is one of the bedrocks of the Albuquerque community theatre scene. For over 30 years, it has been on the vanguard of bringing life and vitality to one of the nation's most vibrant theatre communities.

I am very happy to call the theatre my home, and look forward to many years of working there.

The Vortex Theatre has been providing live stage performances for 35 years and has always been able to present a broad variety of plays from classics to cutting edge to musicals to drama and has always challenged the audiences to be both entertained as well as inspired. The theatre has kept its doors open through good and bad economic times and has done major collaborations with local school and community organizations. I ahve been proud to have been a part of this Albuquerque tradition for 24 years now and expect to continue working with them as well as enjoying the great theater perhaps for another 24.
