I learned of Wolf Trap after two of my daughters moved from Iowa to Virginia. It is a beautiful place to enjoy the arts. One of my daughters volunteers at Wolf Trap regularly and loves the variety of performances. I was privileged to get to see the final showing of "Peter Pan" and absolutely loved it. I always await the season's offerings to plan a trip to VA around the performances. Thank you, Wolf Trap staff

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

my attendance at a performance

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

I don't know of any,

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

My seat was near the stage and I could actually see some of the performer's facial expressions but I think any seat would be good

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

all very courteous to me

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

probably run efficiently for several years.

Ways to make it better...

only if the temperature would have been about 10 degrees cooler.

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

probably funding it in this tight economy

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

It is a great venue for the performing arts.

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?

About once a year

Wolf Trap has been a part of my life for over 35 years, providing entertainment and great experiences as a young single in D.C., young married couple, parents of children enjoying theater in the woods and birthday parties, and an empty-nester now with more free time for summers at Wolf Trap. I love the variety of artists and seating. Some shows are best lounging on the lawn and some sitting properly in a seat. We are so lucky to have Wolf Trap and all that it offers.

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

bringing children to experience the arts in an open air setting.

Thanks to Ms. Shouse and the staff that continues to make Wolf Trap what it is.
