Review for Shadow Box Theatre Inc, New York, NY, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I volunteered at the office of The Shadow Box Theatre once a week for about three months. I spoke to teachers who had seen shows at the theatre in the past to see if they wished to continue receiving info on SBT's shows. 99% said yes and loved all the shows and many had been taking their class to the same show or shows for years. All teachers praised SBT for their great work and said that their children always loved the shows, got into reading the books or listening to the tapes and reading along. And many wanted to act out their own versions of the stories! I loved working with the staff and was able to help them with paper work for schools and getting in touch with groups about coming to the theatre. SBT is really trying to build its family and individual audience, as well, and I worked on getting the word out to them about the Sunday shows that SBT has for families. Feedback from individuals was great, but many said they hadn't heard of Shadow Box before, and were surprised to find out that it's been around for more than 40 years. This is a wonderful theatre with great messages about peace and friendship and following your dreams... I wish that my children were still young enough to attend!
