Review for Stageworks Theatre Co, Tampa, FL, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

It is hard to put into words the value that Anna Brennan (Director) and her "family" have bestowed upon my students who experienced their first theatre outing at a Stageworks performance. She treated them with dignity, respect, and normalcy which is often not the case for a group of at-risk teens! After the first show we attended, the cast held an exclusive talk-back for only our group. What an amazing experience it was for our students to sit and casually talk with the actors all on their own! This was something they had never done before. Anna and her staff have since provided at least 10 complimentary tickets to each show and our students are falling in love with the theatre. Last week, our students attended the Stageworks production "Agnes Of God" and for one of our 17 year old male students, this was his first time ever at a play. He commented after that he had no idea plays could be so much fun and that he wanted to get a girlfriend so that he could take her on a date to a performance! This type of creative exposure is vital to the success of young adults and Stageworks is providing a quality environment for our teens to gain that exposure. Bravo!

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

the way my students repspond to attending the plays.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

change nothing.

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

the quality of the shows and the friendliness of the staff and actors.

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

diverse and wonderful!

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

change the future for youth in our county.

Ways to make it better...

nothing we're changed.

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

having their space built and operational.

One thing I'd also say is that...

We really appreciate this organization.

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?

About every six months
