My family and I became involved with Chaska Valley Family Theatre 13 years ago and it has been one of the best things our family has ever done. We have had the opportunity to be on stage together, be backstage together, rehearse and play together.
The cast and crew for each of the 3-4 shows per year change but the experience of having something we are all working toward . . . to entertain our friends and neighbors creates a tremendous sense of satisfaction for everyone involved.
I ask myself, how many children get the opportunity to dare themselves to put on a costume and play alongside their parents and their parents adult friends? And how many adults dare to dream alongside their children. Growing facial hair or singing at the top of your lungs for the enjoyment of yourself and others . . .
Too often people feel the need to make their children participate in a variety of different activities that neither include their siblings or their parents. They learn about self-needs above others. With Chaska Valley Family Theatre, our family has been blessed to learn about living and acting with others of all ages and to do it with our family. Laughing together, crying together but mostly spending quality time together and performing for others.
Old or young, big or small, orange or blue . . .it doesn't matter. At CVFT, everyone is family. We are oh so grateful.
