"Less than ten Brecksville residents, with a common love of theatre and their community, laid the foundation in 1941 for today's organization. Since then we have made our home, through the generosity of the Brecksville City governance, in the Old Town Hall, a historic building on the town square. The building has been completely renovated as a theatrical facility with state-of-the art lighting and sound." http://www.brecksvillelittletheatre.org.
Truly a gem in our town of Brecksville, Ohio, the Little Theatre provides entertainment for everyone. The productions are put on in Brecksville's Old Town Hall Building, a great testament to community's commitment to the arts. The Old Town Hall Building, itself, is a registered historic landmark. The Theater is a not-for-profit organization and counts on the funds from its productions as well as memberships and community donations. There are generally three productions in a season. Volunteers are always welcome and encouraged and anyone can audition for a production.
In addition, there is a Youth Theatre program. Our son, at age 5, with his friend, participated in a workshop which included six Saturday mornings. The culmination of the workshop was a small production of Snow White, in which he played Sleepy. He did not have many lines, one to be exact, but he sure had a good time! It is so nice to have this kind of opportunity available to kids so they can participate in the arts at an early age.
Hats off to the Brecksville Little Theatre and all of the people who make it happen!
