Review for ACME THEATRE COMPANY, Davis, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I got involves with Acme this year in their production of Cyrano De Bergerac. It was my fist play with them and I was super nervous but they all immediately made me feel at home. They were all so welcoming and kind that I right away started feeling part of the family and made tons of new friends. We had rehearsal all the time but far from being tedious or getting in the way of other activities, it just seemed like the more time we put in, the more we wanted to. The plays at acme are done almost exclusively by the kids, that means all the costuming, publicity, sound, lights, set and props are all designed and executed by us. It created a space where we are all eager to do more because the more you put in the better it comes out. I don't think I have ever worked on anything harder in my life and the results couldn't have been more rewarding because it was ours. It really is a wonderful thing to work with so many people who absolutely love what they are doing.

Did your volunteer experience have an effect on you? (teaching you a new skill, or introducing new friends, etc.)

I met so many wonderful new people with Acme, and when you spend that much time with people you form a sort of family.

Role:  Volunteer & I acted and costumed but also had opportunity to learn about all the other things that go into making a play happen like publicity and set.
