BWW Blog: Jessica Walker - Community Outreach and High School Theatre
by Guest Blogger: Jessica Walker - May 17, 2016

In a tight-nit community like that which I am from, the members of the town are all very close. Adults and children alike collaborate during sporting events, stream clean-ups, and fun-runs. This dynamic within the community also means that the members of the town play an important role in our school's drama department. Schools with less money in the theatre budget are often prone to do-it-yourself projects and community outreach, telling a story with minimal financial input. Coming from a small, rural community, myself and my fellow actors are accustomed to assisting in most if not all aspects of the high school drama program. However, we would not be able to create our productions without the help of friends and family. Through experience, I have learned that making a production is often so deeply rooted in the community you have supporting you.  (more...)

by Shari Barrett - Apr 27, 2016

Every year, Hollywood studios spend millions upon millions of dollars on TV pilots, the “test shows” that networks order before deciding which shows should become full-fledged series or wind up being locked away in a vault never to be seen again.
