Review for STORYLAND THEATRE INC, Augusta, GA, USA
I have had the pleasure of performing onstage with Storyland Theatre as an actor soon-to-be thrice since the spring of 2017. Storyland Theatre is made up of a wonderful collection of caring people who strive to create the best possible experience for kids, some of whom have never before seen a live production. For some of our past actors, for example, Storyland is what allowed them to develop a love of theatre or fostered in them a desire to do theatre. That Storyland was able to inspire in them such a love of the theatrical arts is a testament to its abilities and reach. Simply by attending a show, I believe that kids can easily develop a love of the arts in general or perhaps become more appreciative of them. I have come across kids and their parents who attended the shows who come up to me and are still talking about what they've seen weeks, months, or even a year ago, detailing how much they loved it. Parents have said that it's sometimes all their child can talk about. That, to me, is such a wonderful thing to behold because it really means that it is impacting the kids (and even the parents). On the subject of parents, Storyland Theatre does a Saturday matinee which parents can attend along with their children and during which active duty military and their families are admitted for free. This shows a wonderful support for our military families and allows kids to experience the show a second time with their parents, who are also sure to enjoy the show. I should also note that working with the delightful people behind Storyland Theatre is an absolute privilege and a joy. It makes for a terrific experience, and I encourage any actors that may have the opportunity to take it. Whether as an actor, a child, a parent, or a volunteer, if anyone has the chance to work with or partner with Storyland Theatre, take that chance without a second thought.
