Connecting with Patrons through Low-Risk Theatre Opportunities


Libraries are a wonderful place for patrons of all ages, abilities and socio-economic backgrounds to try new things, learn about ideas, and share hidden talents in a low-risk, welcoming environment. Many times, people are afraid to try theatre classes, because they are nervous about performing for a large group of people or feel overwhelmed about the financial and time commitment associated with “professional” theatre classes or experiences. By working with local artists, libraries can provide a place where their patrons can “try on” the theatre lifestyle and experience the joy and fun that comes from working on a beginner and intermediate level in a variety of theatre settings.
