What's So Great About Live Theater
Live theater is extremely important because humans are social creatures and made to be in association with one another. In this digital world, full of social media, technology, and screens, our society more than ever needs good, safe, meaningful, and physical interactions with others. The words community, cooperation, and collaboration all have the connotation of people acting together for a common purpose or benefit. Let’s look at some reasons why we need live theater and why we should share the joy of it with those around us.
We are shown history, sociology, psychology, conflict, humor, sadness. As an audience member we get to take a ride along a path other than our own. We get to see how others walk through common situations or not so common situations. As thespians we put ourselves into emotional and intellectual places we most likely have never been. We truly get to experience "walking in another's shoes." Live theater teaches us empathy and compassion.
When we share a physical space and experience with other actors and audience members it brings a sense of camaraderie, and shared participation that is not available through watching tv or movies. This is not only highly beneficial it is necessary for good human connection.
Unfortunately, we have gotten to a place in society where different opinions seem to be taboo. How can we ever solve problems if we don't allow discussion? Public discourse truly lies at the heart of democratic society! Let's face it! We are all different. We have different thoughts, opinions, religions, schooling, background, etc. Live theatre is like holding up a mirror to society and looking at the flaws and imperfections as well as the nice parts, and it does it in a nonthreatening way! Through live productions we can begin conversations and problem solving together about all kinds of different societal issues.
Studies show that students who participate in live theatre do better in school. Watching a theatre production takes skill! Following the characters' dialog and the story line requires apt attention, rigorous mental adjustments, and language skills. In live theatre we learn about culture, history, government, religion, human motivation, society, problem solving, conflict resolution, social interaction, etc. For those of us performing, we learn public speaking, confidence, problem solving, creativity, socialization, emotional intelligence, commitment, motivation, cooperation, etc. The benefits are real and varied!
Since the beginning of time, humans have shared stories! Stories have always been an important part of our communication. Maya Angelou said, “There is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside you.” Stories need to be told, they need to be listened to, they need to be indulged and contemplated. Imagine life without stories! EWW! It would be dull and void of meaning. Live theater gives us so much! Let celebrate stories because stories matter and our lives are richer because of them!
Have you ever had that exciting feeling of wanting to step into the enchanting world of a theatre production and mingle with the talented actors? Well, guess what? This is your golden opportunity! Get ready to indulge in a unique and unforgettable experience as you join the cast of “Savannah Sipping Society” for an intimate dinner right on the stage itself!

"Savannah Sipping Society""
In this delightful, laugh-a-minute comedy, four unique Southern women, all needing to escape the sameness of their day-to-day routines, are drawn together by Fate—and an impromptu happy hour—and decide it’s high time to reclaim the enthusiasm for life they’ve lost through the years. Over the course of six months, filled with laughter, hilarious misadventures, and the occasional liquid refreshment, these middle-aged women successfully bond and find the confidence to jumpstart their new lives. Together, they discover lasting friendships and a renewed determination to live in the moment—and most importantly, realize it’s never too late to make new old friends. So raise your glass to these strong Southern women and their fierce embrace of life and say “Cheers!” to this joyful and surprisingly touching Jones, Hope, Wooten comedy!
Performance: January 12, 13, 14, 19, 20 & 21
