Review for Out Of The Woodworks Productions, Woodbridge, VA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I became a Volunteer with OOTW productions because I visited their production one year and was literally drawn into the show and fell in love with it. I am now proud to say that I'm looking forward to my 4th year on Cast and the experience has been beyond measure. Having the opportunity to share the experience I first had of learning by becoming part of a living history play is fulfilling in many ways. Seeing the 'poppets', our youngest patrons, cherishing their Knighting Certificates and favors presented to them by the Queen; the 'unconnected teenagers' who easily engaged us with thoughtful and delving questions for nearly two hours at one of our school presentations and finally the two twenty-something ladies who took great glee in following the Lady’s Quest to find out what it really meant to be a woman in the Renaissance time have enriched my life beyond compare and given me the desire to do even more.

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

experiencing the joy of living history and sharing it with others.

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

find it some funding that was more consistent and reliable instead of counting on the ticket sales which vary greatly depending on the weather.

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

the new friends I have made and the joy and curiosity that I have brought to others.

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

professional and welcoming. They have also become extended family.

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

enhance its venue to be able to offer a better and more hands-on learning experience for all ages.

Ways to make it better...

it were a little closer to home and they didn't have to scrimp for every program expansion or new improvement.

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

finding a permemnant home and building its infrustructure so that the volunteers can focus on presenting and improving their program
