BENEFITING: Special Olympics Massachusetts
The impact at one time I would have said was my wallet but now that so incorrect. Where do you feel the impact? I have watched young black children who have never been out of the neighborhood stare the theater in amazement. Wow! one child said "Mommma It's like we outside and we are inside." (looking up at the fresco on the ceiling . After that I realized I can make an impact on lives!!! It's not about money, it's about memories. African children and adults have not been exposed to real theater, the sounds, the sites, being that close to the performers. It is the biggest hi in life watching t5he eye of a parent looking at her children sitting there watching a stage production. You must realize African Americans have segregated themselves from being a family even in in place that are geared for families like Church. Theaters gives them a cultural awaking that no other thing I know can do for the price. How it affect the actors in the production will astound you. I know i had an actor who was know well in the community as a drug dealers who gave his life to God . Hid nickname is C-Nile but in the production his name is "LOC" he told me that for the last 3 months his own child calls in LOC. A life that will never be the same . That what a live stage production does for you.
