Have you ever noticed that the people who come to see a play, a musical or any other performance are called theater lovers? They spend their money at the theaters and they get involved with the community, which is also called the art community. These theater lovers find that they can socialize with each other and they learn together what they like to do.
We are theater lovers, aren’t we? Well, that is how we define ourselves. We go to the theaters to watch a play, see a musical or a film and then we go to the opera as well. In fact we go to the theaters and see a play every day of our lives. And we are theater lovers.
How could we be theater lovers if we don’t go to the theater? Aren’t we interested in arts and culture? Aren’t we interested in the visual and performing arts? That is exactly what we do and it would be a mistake to suggest that we don’t have an interest in any of the things that make theater so popular.
That is one misconception about theater. Many people think that the only people who go to the theater are teenagers and children. It’s not true. Statistics tell us that more adults go to the movies and watch a movie than watch a musical, plays or any other type of show. It may be that we are just not that inclined towards the performing arts, but the truth is that a lot of people love theater.
The truth is that we are theater aficionados. And we are all proud of it. We want to tell our friends about it, we want to tell our families and we want to invite people over to our house for a night of entertainment. That is what it means to be part of the community and to be included in something.
You might think that we would never give up such an interest in art. But we wouldn’t. There is no way we could honestly tell someone we don’t like to be and then later on not tell them we like it and then not tell them that we liked it. After all, isn’t that the point? Don’t you like to be involved with things that are considered to be more “important”?
Of course we are not all on stage. We have jobs, responsibilities, a family and other responsibilities. But we love theatre. We enjoy watching it and we enjoy bringing it to others. And even when we are not on stage, we appreciate the entertainment provided by the theatre.
If you have a genuine interest in theatre, you are part of the community of theater arts enthusiasts. And if you feel that you could benefit from learning more about it, you should definitely try to go to a theatre workshop. Such a workshop will offer you everything that you need to learn about being part of the theatre arts community. You would be able to experience all that we are talking about.
