Review for Coloma Crescent Players Inc, Coloma, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

This is not just a theatre, this is a community phenomenon. The people who work at this theatre give their all to bring good old-fashioned fun and amusement to the public. Their shows are family friendly and interactive, drawing the patrons into a different world each night. Their school shows are as educational for students as they are entertaining. The very building they perform in is filled to the corners with history and located in an area known for it's historical significance.

Everything is done from love of the art, and the joy of bringing smiles to the faces of the patrons who come to cheer and boo and throw popcorn. The volunteers have worked hard to keep things going, to work with the community, and make the theatre the best that it can be. As a former actress and writer with this group, I can speak for how hard every volunteer and board member works and how much of their own time they put in. Though I live thousands of miles away, I still volunteer whenever I can, in anyway I can.

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

I have attended work days to fix the problems with the theatre, such as stripping floors and general cleanup. I have performed in plays and witnessed the joy and togetherness each cast feels in each production. I have witnessed the enjoyment and laughter of the patrons that attend the performances.

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

I would ask for more volunteers for all areas (acting, backstage positions, work day participation, members of the board), and ask for more donations, either monetary or needed items for improvement. The community's help is needed at all times.

Role:  Volunteer & I performed onstage as an actress, attended performances as a patron, supplied a few costumes and props, and co-wrote a Christmas play.
