ACME THEATRE COMPANY
February 24, 2012
I had just moved to Davis and was at a completely new school. I had no friends, except for girls I knew in choir, and spent all of my spare time studying or working with animals on campus. One day, I saw an audition info sheet in the choir room for something called Acme Theater company. It was the last day of auditions for their winter show, Cyrano de Bergerac. I called the number and got an audition later that day. That was probably the best decision I have made in my life so far. Instantly, I was adopted into a family of wonderful people all working to better the community with the power of theater. Rehearsals after school and on weekends were a joy to go to, every minute spent on the production was fulfilling and worth every drop of sweat, love, and blood that went into it. Acme pulled me out of depression and gave me a sense of purpose, not to mention friends and happiness. I hope to be in future productions, but even if I can't, I will always have the friends and experiences they gave me from that one time. Please consider Acme for your donation so they can continue to help other kids in the way they helped me.
