Many of us, who work too often unpaid, in the independent film and documentary industry, more and more, are trying to network just to survive in this economy. We're also sick of the corporate bankster propaganda movies where big corporation items, cars, and war is glamorized for the mostly American weak-minded. Community theater is a place for networking, getting to know like-minded people, to have fun, and just see other Americans who care, and what they have to say on issues. America needs some sort of resurgence of a grass roots industry as factories and small farm barns rot into the ground.
If the below theater was somewhere I could get to on my limited budget, I would have already made a personal visit and said hello.
