Stageworks Theatre Co
February 26, 2010

I was first introduced to Stage Works and Anna Brennan when she gave complimentary tickets to our school to see a performance of "My Children! My Africa!" It was the first time our group of at-risk teens had seen a play, and they were hooked. The performance was powerful and amazing, but what was even more amazing was the way Anna and the cast interacted with our students. Her warmth and enthusiasm drew them in and ignited in them an interest in the theatre and the arts that they never knew existed. Since that first show, the plays have been a topic of discussion in our classroom and our students have taken an interest in reading plays out-loud in class. Some have expressed interest in writing and performing their own plays. She has since provided our class with comlimentary tickets to all of their shows. After the plays, Anna and the cast always take the time to provide a talk-back with our students, which means so much to them.
