Community Theatre Week

Who knew?!  It's Community Theatre Week in Pennsylvania this week.  State Rep. Perry Warren (D-31, Bucks) was the lead sponsor of a resolution (HR 916) to recognize June 3-9, 2018 as Community Theatre Week. Today Warren introduced and reconized representatives from the Newtown Arts Company and ActorsNET in Morrisville.

Two quotes that accompanies the press release:

“Community theatre organizations bring the arts to life for audiences of all ages and socio-economic backgrounds,” said Warren, D-Bucks. “The passionate individuals who make up these organizations introduce us to new worlds and help us understand the human experience.”

“We appreciate the efforts of everyone, from the actors on stage to the behind-the-scenes crew, who put together community programs that educate and enrich our lives. I’m pleased to be able to shine a spotlight on their work,” Warren said.
There were several other Philly area representatives among the bipartisan group of co-sponsors, among them:  Murt, Daley, DiGirolomo, and Raab.

I agree with the House on this -- community theatre groups are an important part of our social fabric.  A vital artistic ecosystem has a lot of levels.  I went to see "Three Tall Woman" in New York last weekend, but I also go to see plays at People's Light, the Arden, local productions, and high school performances.  It is a wonderful way to support the efforts of our friends and neighbors to tell our cultural stories.
