If you saw my twitter you know that two days ago a gentleman (Mr. Cook) and I had discussed the non-exsistant arts program in Graham, (pop. 8,739, and surrounded by towns about the same size). Meth labs are moving in and the town council is looking towards increasing things such as arts programs as studies show that communities with them have fewer drug related problems.
The really odd thing was... just that very morning I was thinking about ways to get out of the rut I'd written about in my past essay here and wondered if there were a local community theater group. So I asked Mr. Cook, and he said no, and not only that, they were at a dead end for ideas and hadn't even considered community theater. He took my number and then yesterday came back to the store to make sure they had the right number and she called me today, anxious to set up a meet and discuss it.
Now, I've done stuff since high school but it was all behind the scenes stuff: Make up, props, running lines, helping build sets, etc... not any acting, directing, business end, management, etc.
Anything you can tell me that might help me to do the best I can for helping these guys out would be greatly helpful.
And, I'll try to keep you all posted on how it's going.
