Review for Globe of the Great Southwest Inc, Odessa, TX, USA
Within the passed year my daughter and I moved to the Permian Basin from Phoenix. We went to an open read night and was impressed by the age range and mostly from a young lady's play that was read. After asking questions, Catherine and Anthony came up to ask us where we had come from etc. So we had been invited to be more involved if we like. My 11 yo daughter had a great experience with a speaking role in Lion Witch and the Wardrobe!!!!! I have been impressed with the professional group, the working arrangements around school and other activities. They have never asked for money or great amount of time/ work from myself as a single mother. I didn't have to provide costume or anything, after coming from a small midwest farm community to find a theater that allows community involvement at our own terms is such a relief.
Then to see the productions are so impressive along with the potential of those young people involved are good to consider. It is with regret that the lost of my position that we will be heading back to Phoenix and not able to stay involved with this caliber of live theater in the future.
The grounds, theater and staff are amazing for such a remote, small community. A real gem of the southwest. I would recommend a trip to this area for one of the productions while seeing other nearby attractions or passing thru the southwest travels.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
I think its a wonderful experience they have open auditions that we initially went just to allow my young daughter to see the process, then was asked to audition. It has always been pleasant experiences in all aspects to work with, volunteer and enjoy the productions.
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
Better marketing to get larger crowds to performances and more of the community to come to auditions. Difficult in the area and not sure all the area is a bit ruff around the collar.
