I posted today in another blog called “A Year of Significance” that my goal for January 4, 2010 is to find our leaders — specifically for the upcoming Brave New World fundraiser. Yes, that’s pretty ambitious, but I’ve already begun and have faith that it will happen. Yes, it will take me more than just today to do. Yes, it’s worth the effort.
So many of the Optimist Theatre goals — for both the company AND Shakespeare in the Park — focus on community involvement. Our work is a collaborative effort. It’s not the only way to go about these things, but it is the approach we prefer. Utopian? Why not?
We have a unique blend of optimism, faith in people and practical experience to draw from. It’s the approach that worked successfully when Ron and I ran entertainment for the Bristol Renaissance Faire and for the couple of years at the Renaissance Pleasure Faire. Let’s see how this works for Shakespeare in the Park.
Hopes are high.
