As a part of Pentacle, I have the opportunity to experience professional development. When my students say, “we saw you, doing the thing you are teaching us about doing,” or when they discuss Pentacle production elements analytically and with specificity – those are priceless moments.
As a part of Pentacle, I have the opportunity to grow my craft. And that makes me more empathetic as an educator: more kind, more patient, more connected to what I ask of my students: to be vulnerable, to take risks, to try things with which they are unfamiliar…on a daily basis. I am grateful for the opportunities Pentacle has given me to be, as Wilde said, a human being.
The next generation of citizens, performers, and technicians is in the Pentacle audience and on the stage. Working beside my students and those from other schools is a gift that allows us both to learn and grow in a different type of mentorship than the classroom allows.
With your financial support, you too can be a part of developing that next generation of storytellers.
I’ve seen young people be inspired as audience members and as performers and technicians, collaborating and working cooperatively and creatively to tell stories, investing and reinvesting in our community.
Pentacle connects our past to our future. It allows those whose daily lives are part of the workforce to have a creative outlet – and speaking as one in the arts, and as one in the workforce, this outlet is so very, very necessary.
Pentacle allows us to tell stories.
Now, it’s up to you – to us – to make sure Pentacle is there for this generation and the next and the next to tell their stories. Your financial support makes it possible.
From one storyteller to another, thank you in advance for supporting the vital and exciting storytelling that takes place at Pentacle Theatre.
You are a crucial part of the story.
You are the difference-maker.
