Family of Volunteers Helps Set the Pulse of the Heartbeat at The Actors Conservatory Theatre
When you step into the building at 359 Lake Park Road in Lewisville, Texas, you will find a flurry of activities that could seem rather random. There are so many details that go into producing a children’s theatre production at The Actors Conservatory Theatre. Costumes must be designed and created, sets and props must be dreamed and constructed; and children must be wrangled, instructed, and most of all, loved. All of this occurs under very strict budget constraints, so creativity and resourcefulness are called upon often. It is in this flurry of activity where you will find our faithful family of volunteers happily working behind the scenes. They are stay-at-home-moms, engineers, pilots, project managers, teachers, counselors, and many other vocations by day; but when they step through the doors, they willingly become anything most currently needed.
The children who participate in the programming at The ACT learn many things about storytelling and performing. They acquire confidence and skills in their time on the stage. However, they also subtly learn many valuable lessons from these volunteers. They see the value of teamwork. They witness people use their talents for the benefit of others. They see that creativity knows no age limits, and we are never too old to learn to do something new.
The ACT is so grateful to its volunteers. They quietly make a big difference in the lives of the children who witness their efforts. For more information about getting involved, visit https://getintotheact.org/.
