Wow! Thanks for the inspiring Title! Now, can you find me a place to sleep tonight?! It is my wife, DeeAnn, and Dorothy Sanders, that is the genius behind Artisan Center Theater. I have a full time career (or at least, will have, until my boss reads this story) in Dimensional Metrology (the science of measurement). I also volunteer at the theater over 60 hours a week and help raise money to support their noble efforts. I clean toilets and wash windows and help wherever needed. I cannot act, or sing or dance and marvel at the amazing talent in the Dallas/Ft. Worth area that audition for each and every production.
Indeed, this community is blessed with some of the most inspiring performers in America! They do not get paid. Does anyone else feel overwhelmed by this? Or is it just me? To dedicate so much personal time and resources purely for the enlightenment and entertainment of your fellow man... imagine that? That is why The Dallas Observer has touched upon what makes 2009 a Great Year in spite of the economy. The fine citizens of Dallas that support the Arts have made this a wonderful place to live!
Yes, I am a Founder and strong supporter of Artisan Center Theater. But the credit goes to two very inspired women who have created a wonderful playground for the entire family! Congratulations ladies!
