Why is it Important to Support Musical Theatre?
Storytelling provides a shared experience of what it is to be human. It poses questions that encourage a deeper understanding of our existence. Undoubtedly, storytelling is essential to how we perceive the world around us.
Music engages the human spirit by creating and inspiring deep emotional connections beyond the bounds of language.
Woven together, music and storytelling are a powerful expression of our collective voice. They are the most accessible of the modern performing arts.
As people become less connected from one another and from nature, we crave a uniting, shared experience. From that shared experience, we are reminded of the riches to be found in each other’s stories. Finally, live performance art surrounded by the exquisite beauty of nature gets us back to our roots!
While we are proud of Mountain Play’s artistic accomplishments, as leaders we have a responsibility to look ahead. Preserving the stability of our longstanding tradition in a rapidly changing world is our goal. Above all, we ensure that our programming remains relevant to the shifting culture and sustainable for the future. With the support from our community, Mountain Play can continue the adventure.
