What is Community Theatre

What is Community Theatre?

Now that we have a website dedicated to helping people to promote their "Community Theatre" events and facilitating reviews of those events, I though that it would be a good idea to define what "Community Theatre" is.

According to Wikipedia the scope of "Community Theatre" is very broad indeed.

Community theatre refers to theatrical performance made in relation to particular communities - its usage includes theatre made by, with, and for a community. It may refer to:

  • theatre that is made entirely by a community with no outside help, or
  • to a collaboration between community members and professional theatre artists, or
  • to performance made entirely by professionals that is addressed to a particular community.
