"Without the Theater, i would just go home by myself on Sunday afternoon and watch tv" (older widow)
"the kids there had no idea what to expect from this program [Childsplay] since they had only seen movies or TV shows, and had never seen a live performance or been exposed to the idea of sets, props or costume changes" (teacher small rural school)
