From the Executive Director

Dear Cottage Theatre family,

I hope you can treat yourself to a moment in the sunshine today!

And I hope that, at least for a few minutes, you can experience your surroundings with "actor's mindset." Let me explain. The thing I and, I suspect, many other performers, love best about being on stage is the incredible focus acting requires. As you jump into the story of the play, and really listen to what other characters are saying, "real life" just melts away. Being on stage is like a mini-vacation from the world — and when you exit the stage, you are changed. You have grown as a person by virtue of that experience of being fully attuned to the present moment. 

It seems to me that, in this time of global uncertainty about the future, we all need little mini-vacations that an actor's mindset can bring. Try it! You may discover why so many of us find creating theatre so addictive!

Until we can be together again, be well . . . and spread kindness!

Create some magic for the future

Like every performing arts organization, Cottage Theatre faces some significant financial challenges as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. We have already cut as many ongoing expenses as possible during this crisis, but some core operating costs continue whether or not we are holding performances.

If you are in a position to contribute a little bit to help ensure that CT maintains its footing for the future, we  and your future fellow audience members — will be very grateful.
