Community Theater in the Times

Interesting piece in support of Community Theater from the NY Times - In the Mid Hudson Valley Region in particular we have a very rich and varied number of community theater groups.

"COMMUNITY theater, the institution so deftly parodied in the 1996 film “Waiting for Guffman,” occupies a singular place in New York City’s suburbs. Not only does Broadway draw stage actors of the highest caliber, but professional regional theaters like Paper Mill in Millburn, Westport Country Playhouse in Connecticut and Schoolhouse Theater in Croton Falls, N.Y., also bring first-class talent directly to our doorsteps." read more

Erica, Thank goodness for community theatre. I'd rather see a bad show than none at all, but fortunately, most community theatre I've seen is vital and well worth seeing.
