I went to my first LAMB production in September and was so impressed with how kind and helpful the volunteers & employees were. It was a well directed show that kept me laughing & even brought me to tears at the end. Beautiful set in a theatre that made me feel a part of the show. Loved my first experience, can't wait to go back for the next show!

lamb Theatre created a nurturing family atmosphere for me when I was experiencing a difficult time. Expressing myself on stage with my Lamb family helped me to build my talents and my confidence. I believe my experience there helped me to be successful in my education and in my career. I owe a great deal to everyone at Lamb and I’m grateful to be able to serve the theatre today as a board member helping to support all that they do.

I took part in the summer "EWE-NIVERSITY" theatre classes at LAMB every summer throughout middle school and high school. At the time we had no idea that this kind of opportunity was available, but it helped me more than I could ever have imagined. I didn't know it at the time, but I was since diagnosed with autism, and communicating with others had long been a struggle for me. LAMB helped me in a couple ways with this. First, it introduced me to other people who share the same interest as me, so I didn't feel isolated from my peers; I felt like I was part of a group and I belonged there. Secondly, LAMB helped me find a new way to communicate via the theatre. I discovered that while I struggle with one-on-one, spontaneous conversation, the theatre is a different way of communicating since everyone has a script and a set part. This the uncertainty out of communicating and helped me, as a person with autism, to communicate with others. We all need to share our passions and communicate with others; we just don't all do it in the same way. LAMB gave me a great outlet not only at that time, but beyond high school. I have since graduated from Morningside College as a mass communications major and a theatre minor, and LAMB was my first time discovering what a valuable tool the theatre can be.

Wonderful for our community to have a theater of this caliber, offering regional and even world premiers of many plays.
Terrific school for aspiring thespians, as our public school system lacks in the theater arts department.

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!

I enrolled my grandaughter in the summer school session 2 years ago and she absolutely loved it. She wanted to then go to the entire season that corresponds with the scool year. One thing I noticed in the classes she attends, all the kids come out at the end of class beaming - sometime singing in the halls and dancing as they leave for the day. I highly recommend these classes to any one with a child. This has exposed her to a new world, and we now go see all the musicals that come through Sioux City. Her favorite so far is West Side Story. Go figure my 9 year old would enjoy a new side of dance and music!

Four of my children have participated in the Ewe-niversity summer camp every year since they were 6 years olds. My oldest is now 16 and it is one of the highlights of her summer. Finally this year, she has had the opportunity to take an acting class and was in her first main stage performance. Seeing the excitement my children have when going to Lamb, makes me smile. Not to mention all the shows I have attended and enjoyed.

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.

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'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.
