RENAISSANCE THEATRE INC
February 17, 2010

I am a patron of the theatre who has quickly become a friend to most of the major players. This is a very well-run and energetic bunch of people! They are serious about their craft and their work without taking themselves too seriously. I am impressed and amazed that they have taken the facilities at hand, and turned it into a first-class community theatre!

The Great!

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

watching some of the actors approach new roles with apprehension and within a few days deliver outstanding rehearsal moments.

Ways to make it better...

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

install a lift in their lobby to assist mobility-challenged patrons to the upstairs auditorium.

More feedback

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

the way this group made me feel included in their activities.

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

down-to-earth "real" people. These are not your typical pretentious theatre types.

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

install theatre-style seating in both auditoriums, upgrade bathroom facilities, install a lift in the main theatre lobby, and erect a more proper marquee.

Ways to make it better...

the seating in the theatre was a bit more comfortable.

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

money. As with all non-profits in this weakened economy, they are struggling to provide top quality services on a nearly non-existent budget (when compared with "for-profit" theatrical venues.

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?
