ARTS ON STAGE LTD
January 21, 2011
I have been working for several years now as an usher and board member for Arts on Stage. This nonprofit company brings great theater productions to school -aged children around the Baltimore area. These productions have included music, dance, children's literature, historical figures, and science. I have watched the excitement of children who are attending their first theatrical production, and it is contagious. Teachers and home-schooling parents are also provided with a study guide for the performance so follow-up can be done back at the school setting. Those involved in choosing the productions are very in-tune with the curriculum used in the public schools of the area so as to provide an educational as well as cultural experience. Presently the productions are held at Goucher College and Chesapeake Art Center.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
positive words from students, parents, and teachers who have attended a show.
Ways to make it better...
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
hope for funding to come available to more schools to be able to pay for the cost of buses for a field trip such as this.
Board Member & I assist the President and Vice-President of the company.
