“I attended my first Community Theater production last night and was delighted! I had no idea we had such talented folks in HVL. The space is intimate, and we felt like we were really part of the production. We felt there was a great amount of caring and cohesiveness among the staff and actors. Even the crowd was great- not the stuffy theatre snobs I’ve experienced in bigger cities.”
