Review for Broadway By the Bay, Redwood City, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I've been a stage manager for Broadway by the Bay for 16 years, and volunteered on the crew for a few years before that. The company provides a wonderful opportunity for community performers to appear in a professional quality production alongside theater professionals. Volunteer opportunities exist for crew members, where valuable technical theater skills are taught. I am a big fan of the company, because they provide an opportunity for community involvement in every area of musical theater production, without compromising artistic quality.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

being part of fantastic musical theater productions, such as "The Full Monty" and "Jesus Christ Superstar."

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

the opportunity to work with talented and enthusiastic people.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

kind and professional.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

educate thousands of kids in theater, put on some terrific shows, and improve the venue to better accomodate the audience.

Ways to make it better...

there was a larger budget to allow more flexibility in the artistic process and greater community participation.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

the increased cost of theatrical space, and the limited availability of rental sets of broadway quality.
