Review for Globe of the Great Southwest Inc, Odessa, TX, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have been a volunteer at the Globe since 2003, working onstage backstage and with ushering/concessions. My family is also very actively involved. The experience of working together to help create something of value to the community is wonderful. The theater provides the opportunity for local (and not-so-local) students to see live theater. Seeing Shakespeare performed is much more powerful and thought-provoking than attempting to read it. The Globe also allows people who think they are interested in a career in the performing arts the opportunity to work with professionals. It gives them a chance to recognize the hard work and commitment that are involved. It also gives them a chance to begin building the skills needed to succeed.

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

Being a wonderful place for my family and a place to work with and become friends with a diverse community of people.

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

Find ways to reach even more of the community with the benefits of live theater in a unique venue.
