Community Theatre

Community theatre combined with educational messages can be effectively integrated into questions and answers through theatrical performance made by, with, and for a community. This approach can stimulate the audience to think, learn and challenge myths, in a fun new way to learn more about a specific topic.

The production can be made up entirely by a community, or if need be, with the external help of a company that would like to impart a specific message, on a particular issue within the community.

Community theatres are not limited to the size of group participation and are often performed in hired areas or in facilities owned by medium to large organisations. Many community theatres are successful, non-profit businesses which rely on staff and community participation, often paid for by a sponsor.
