I have been a supporter of LAMB for a number of years . Not only have I never been disappointed with a production, but, my expectations are most often far exceeded. I appreciate that LAMB presents a variety of theatre experiences from thought-provoking to pure enjoyment. I have attended a number of productions featuring the LAMB School students and their enthusiasm and talent are incredible! It seems apparent that LAMB is providing them outstanding education and opportunity in the theatre arts. We are very fortunate to have this marvelous showcase for local talent. I feel very proud that our community offers theatre of this caliber both for students and audiences!

I have had the honor of working with both Diana and Russ Wooley over the past year and both have such a passion and love for the arts and the stage. They have been able to grow in the community and contribute such a beautiful form of art to anyone who wants to be entertained and also be a part of a family who loves giving back through all aspects of stage performances. Sioux City needs this gem that has been established because of Diana and Russell's vision to bring art to life. Everyone that works at Lamb and to anyone who has given their time and work to make each show something special, I say thank you. Thank you for teaching the minds in the Lamb Ewe-niversity and giving children a chance to grow up in a world of wonder and amazement on the stage and find their own love in the theatre.

LAMB Arts Regional Theatre/School has been a great community partner for Hunt A+ Elementary. Through the partnership that has been formed between our school and LAMB, students at Hunt A+ have had the opportunity and will continue to have the opportunity to experience drama and theatre.

I was lucky enough to be cast in a production of Peter and the Starcatcher at LAMB. It was truly an amazing experience work with people who are professional, knowledgeable, invested and inspired by their craft and the worlds that they passionately create. If you get the chance to do a show, do it. Need classes for children, look no further; you will not be disappointed. Thank you LAMB for embracing me and I hope to join you again!

I enjoy every experience at Lamb Arts - productions are high quality, the intimate setting means every seat is a great seat and close to the action. Special events and their education programs are top notch as well. This organization is focused on their mission and works to advance it in multiple ways that make sense.

I've been involved with Lamb over the last 2 years both behind the scenes and on the stage. I've not seen it done better; professional staging, respectful and focused actors and directors, and an incredibly loyal audience community. We're lucky to have this place!

We live in Minneapolis and trave to Sioux City to see the plays at the Lamb Theater. We have been shocked at the high quality of drama presented. This is a unique institution for the community and the area. The actors and the sets are all high quality.

I have been attending Lamb Arts Regional Theater for seven years now as a student and a patron. All of Lamb's shows are professionally done and have never disappointed me or my family. Lamb is a safe and fun environment for people of all ages. The classes are led by some of the most professional people around.

LAMB Theatre is an unforgettable experience as a student, actor, or theatre-goer. The Theatre always makes sure to put on a professional show that goes above and beyond the public's expectations. I would highly recommend LAMB to anyone interested.

I'm a professional freelance theatre artist - currently making theatre all over the country. LAMB Arts Regional Theatre was instrumental in my development as a young artist. The school fostered my love of theatre and challenged me, offering excellent preparation for my college auditions while giving me professional guidance. The Wooley's were the first teachers in my life to show me that a professional career in the arts was possible. Additionally, they continue to provide an enormous amount of value to the community around them: artistically enriching the lives of patrons, students, as well as artists in Sioux City with tons of talent that needs to be shared. Coming in contact with LAMB was, by far, the most valuable moment of my career. It gave me a solid foundation, investing me with the passion and skillset to keep growing.

I have recently become involved with LAMB Arts as an actor in Mainstage productions, as well as a volunteer on fundraising committees. LAMB continues to raise the bar on artistically produced plays and musicals that rival any seen at professional playhouses in major cities. They couple most plays in the season with a "Projects of Hope" night; an opportunity for other area non-profits to use the night's production income as a means to fundraise for their own organization. From infants to adults, LAMB provides a welcoming "home away from home" and a creative environment to learn and grow.

I have had the priviage to work with this organization for the last 8 years. The service they provide to the community is invaluable. The theatre and school are a place where kids and adults can come and feel apart of something important. People can come to explore and grow as individuals. I truly appreciate the safe haven they provide for children in the community.

Our daughter is 9 and has been involved with Lamb for several years already. She absolutely loves it! The environment is great for learning and welcoming to all who want to participate. We are donors as well - to keep this local gem going strong for our daughter and future generations.

Our involvement with Lamb Arts has been via our grandchildren's participation in theatre productions. The opportunity available to young people through Lamb is extraordinary. They can't wait to attend and perform with the superlative direction of Russ and Diana Wooley and their exemplary staff and volunteers. Vital life lessons of hard work, discipline and responsibility has resulted in gains in self confidence and pride being demonstrated by our grandchildren. Watching thirty plus kids and young adults clean the theater after the last performance was outstanding. What a team and how well they represent Lamb. Lamb is a community art cultural gem!

My kids have been involved in the Lamb Theatre school since they were toddlers. The oldest is graduating form high school this year. The skills and confidence they have both gained is immeasurable. The professionalism of the shows, whether children's theater or main stage, is incredible for such a small city and adds so much to the quality of life in Sioux City!
