WILL GEER THEATRICUM BOTANICUM
January 20, 2010

An absolutely wonderful outdoor theater experience under the oak trees in Topanga Canyon, outside of Los Angeles! The quality of the Shakespeare and other classical presentations, and their commitment to helping students understand and experience plays and theater techniques through classes makes them one of the favorite field trips in Los Angeles. Their presentations touch the very deepest human emotions with sensitivity and skill.

The Great!

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

watching the rapt and delighted faces of the audiences at the Shakespeare, in the classes and at the Kids Koncerts and other musical events.

Ways to make it better...

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

make sure they had financial security so they could expand their programs.

More feedback

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

their commitment to lifting the human spirit, both in their work with their audience, and in their approach to working with actors and staff.

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

helpful, caring and talented.

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

enrich the lives of many more people in the Southern California area, develop new shows, subsidize more educational programs for low income and minority children, finish becoming energy independent and build more bonds with the Topanga community.

Ways to make it better...

more people were exposed to the theater's many wonderful programs.

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

financial in nature. The infrastructure of the organization is sound and based on an interdependent model of teams helping and supporting each other.

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

The Will Geer Theatricum Botanicum is a "diamond" still undiscovered by many of the people in the entertainment industry of Los Angeles.

The Great!

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

families, schools, and communities that finally have a safe way to address the scary issues surrounding child abuse prevention. It gives parents and kids the techniques to safely discuss all the important issues in this arena.

More feedback

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

well-trained, sensitive and highly conscious of the emotionally laden landscape they enter with their clients and students.

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

lift the plight of victimized girls and women worldwide, by empowering them and the men and boys in their lives to discard the sexual usury that pervades our cultures, societies, politics and economics.
