My son's first experience was with an ESL Workshop 2.5 years ago. At first he was unsure if he wanted to particpate, even after we had signed him up. After the first week, he could not wait to go back the following week. Since then, he has been involved in several productions and with each one, his self-confidence and skills as an actor have grown. And, I have seen the same thing happen to other children as well. The people who run ESL are both talented and caring. Their love for the theater is obvious and inspiring and is why they continue to grow the organization.

I've been participating with Enter Stage Left Theater for almost my entire life. I love watching it grow and prosper, and to see how far it's come over the years. This theater has been a huge part of my life, from first learning acting skills to working around the office every week. I'm always impressed with the work and dedication that goes into not only the productions, but also just managing the theater's day to day needs. I want nothing more than to see ESL become even more successful, and will do everything I can to help. I think it's a great asset to the community.

I started with Enter Stage Left a few years ago during their Summer stock program and it was one of the best experiences I've had in theater. So I kept going back, and surely enough, every show was better and better. The people there are amazingly talented and the instructors are accommodating and absolutely brilliant. It's an amazing place.

Enter Stage Left Theater, Inc. is truly the best non-profit community theater I've ever had the pleasure of dealing with! My career has taken me to many states in this country. Where ever I go, finding a local theater is paramount! I've been actively involved in theater for over 30 years. Enter Stage Left is the best of them all. Why? Because I was immediately made to feel like my contribution mattered. In many local performing arts centers, new people are told they are welcome, but not made to feel welcome. With ESL Theater, I became part of an enthusiastic group of veterans and newbies that has enriched my life. Never have I committed myself to the success of an avocation as I have with ESL Theater - and that's because they so clearly love what they do and are committed to enriching the lives of young and old with their services. This non-profit truly caters to budding artists from age 3 to 103! There's something for everyone! Their staff is professional and engaging. They have a clear vision of growth for the future, and have the desire and drive to succeed.
