WALPOLE FOOTLIGHTERS INC
February 16, 2010
I first came to Walpole Footlighters as an actor and remember being very impressed (and even a little intimidated) by the professional approach they took with their productions. From the director to lighting person to dialect coach everyone had a plan of attack and contributed to telling fantastic stories. I quickly got over feeling intimidated, however, by the down-to-earth approach of everyone involved. One particular standout in my acting experience was participating in the drama 'The Laramie Project' which is about the life and death of Matthew Shepherd, the gay teen who was killed in a hate crime. 'Unselfish teamwork' best describes this organization's approach.
The Footlighters also regularly feature local writers' work - providing a much needed forum.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
being challenged by the directors and material and learning more about acting and theater.
If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...
produce more shows, update equipment and make timely repairs to the building, market themselves to reach a wider audience and maybe even offer salaries to key personnel. It's a great space that, like any other, needs upkeep to keep it operating.
