I have volunteered at Lamb with partaking in the shows, teaching, and helping behind the scenes. Lamb Arts Regional Theatre is honestly a great place for every age. They are making so many people want to be part of Lamb and keeping theatre alive. I have been more than blessed by Russell and Diana Wooley for letting me be part of Lamb. I would not want to know what my life could be like without Theatre. I have made so many new friends, and have been shown how to be more confident with my acting and myself in general. Thank you for being part of my life.
Lamb Arts LTD is a phenomenal organization. I have been taking classes at Lamb my whole life. It has not only helped me meet new friends, adults and children, but has also helped me grow as a person. I can't imagine what I would do without this organization. Lamb Arts LTD brings arts education to many children who normally would not have the ability to see live theater or take music or acting classes. Arts education is very important and it is being cut all over the country. This place is my second home and everyone there is my "extended family"
My children have been at LAMB since they were newborns! They began with the KinderMusik program which allowed our whole family the opportunity to attend and support their education in the arts. My daughter has attended the Broadway Babes classes and is currently involved in theatre troop. The classes have given her confidence and have provided her with a structured yet fun atmosphere in which to spread her theatrical wings at her own pace and direction. She has attended the Summer Lamb Ewe program for five years and eagerly awaits yet another opportunity his coming year. Our sone was diagnosed with Autism at the age of three and LAMB has given him an outlet to his creative and musical soul. While he lacks some of the control and focus needed for some of the staff work; the staff and peers at Lamb are accepting and kind allowing his singing and dancing to bring us all joy. I thank Lamb for their dedication and acceptance of our children and helping children in the community become successful in their own unique goals with the arts.
I have been to two plays at the Lamb Theater and I thoroughly enjoyed them both. I am disabled but that wasn't a problem at Lamb because they went out of their way to make sure I could get in and find my seat. I would go back to Lamb over and over. Thank you. Phyllis Johnson
I spent a number of summers at Lamb Ewe-niversity. I am now a marketing coordinator for a technology company in Omaha, NE. There are a couple of things that I credit with the cultivation of my people skills. The first one is pageants. The second one is Lamb. Russ and Diana Wooley have created a wonderful program that helps kids come out of their shells, learn how to perform, and make new friends. I am a huge fan of them and their theatre.
I see the work they do with all of the youth that they have walk through their doors and how it helps the children to become more confident in their lives. Personally, the opportunities they have given me as an actor have made me a better and more rounded individual.
I remember when my kids started KinderMusik--it was brand new. What a great program!! They loved it and learned so much! My son even got scarves, egg shakers etc. for a birthday gift...I look back at the old home videos and it makes me smile. I was really looking forward to my kids being able to continue and grow into all the programs Lamb has to offer, but my husband's job got tranferred and we had to move. Honestly, Lamb is still one of the things I miss most. Take advantage of all the wonderful things Lamb has to offer--sometimes we take things for granted and you don't realize til they (or you) are gone what great opportunities you had!
I would have to say I feel blessed I ever met the Wooley's! I would not be in the place I am as a performer if it wasn't for them. The memories I will always carry with me from my time there is what motivates me to be a performer! To use all the wonderful things I have learned and motivate the youth to see something on stage and say, "I want to do that." When I get off the stage and I am told by a little kid that they want to be like me when they grow up it makes me more proud than any monetary achievement I may encounter! I am in one year about to embark on a European performing career! After I was excepted into the International Performing Arts Institute with 15 other college students from across the United States, I was lucky enough to be put in front of the biggest casting director in Germany and much of Europe! I will,in one year, be studying at the Joop Van Den Ende Academy in Hamburg, Germany and I believe I truly could not have done it without being welcomed into the performing world by the Wooleys, Donny Short, and the other wonderful teachers at Lamb Productions! Thank You For Everything, Danny Marandola
I have been involved with Lamb Arts since I was five years old. As a student, Lamb taught me life lessons that helped me grow as a performer and a person. For the last four years I received the privilege to be a dance teacher at the Lamb school. Through this I got to bring the encouragement and see children just like I was grow into wonderful human beings. Through the arts and theater, Lamb teaches you to take risks in life and reach for your dreams. It encourages you to have fun and shows you how hard work can pay off. This organization is bringing and continues to bring life into the next generation.
Three out of the four of my children have been involved with Lamb Theater for the past 11 years. Through their experience at Lamb, I have seen their confidence and creativity grow allowing several doors to open for them in school as well as the community. Lamb has provided them with a professional environment for the arts and this fall, two children will be taking voice lessons and the other will be attending Mr Wooley's drama class for high schoolers. We now schedule our vacations around the Summer Ewe sessions. We are hooked on Lamb!
The staff and owners of LAMB are great at what they do. They are informed, caring and professional, on top of being fun, kind and encouraging to their students. The highlight of my daughter's week is the time she spends at LAMB.
