Review for Freehold Theatre Lab/Studio, Seattle, WA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I started classes with Freehold in 2000 taking classes as a nascent actor. The soul of truth which is nurtured is what kept me studying and supporting them, and lately being a board member.

Freehold reaches out and brings together people from all walks of life in a safe and accepting environment.

The community outreach programs for the underserved in our communities is another big part of their mission. The most moving performances I've ever seen are those done by residents in prisons in in the Engaged Theatre Program where they work with our faculty to create and produce stories based on their lives creating a two way connection humanizing people on both sides. I also had the privilege to be cast in a professional Shakespeare production which Freehold also does in which these productions are brought to underserved communities. It remains a high point in my life. The talk backs with the residents in the prisons when they were performers and when they were audience are insightful and deeply moving for all involved.
