A theatre for all

Some of the material I couldn’t get to in the story on the Effingham Theatre’s production of “Invasion” centered around the organization itself.

“We’ll accept any one and everyone, exactly as they are,” Jonathan Thompson of the Theatre said. “They love coming to work with us. We don’t give special treatment to anyone — they’re either an actor or a techie. People enjoy it, because they get to be themselves or they get to be someone else if they want to be someone else, because it’s a theatre. There are no bars to what you can do with this.

“We’ve got a lot of community support with this. We’ve got more families involved than we’ve had before. And our reputation as a safe, fun environment for people to come, even if you don’t want to be in a show. We just like providing a place for people to come and have fun.”

Their production of “Invasion” spans three consecutive weekends.
