THEATRE IS FAMILY

Proverbs 11:25
A generous person will prosper; whoever refreshes others will be refreshed.

In the past, I was a theatre mom, but this past year I had the privilege to be part of the theatre as the co-director of our high school drama club.

As the curtains for the last time this year, I reflected about how much I learned from these wonderful kiddos. The most important thing I learned was love, hope and respect.

You see in the picture below there are many races, cultures, ages, religious beliefs and sexual identities. We joke. We kid. What we don’t do is offend or get offended. We don’t always agree or understand each other, but it never stops us from loving or respecting each other.

My co-director is fond of saying, “Theatre is Family.” I have seen that first hand this year. There is not one of these kiddos who wouldn’t drop everything to race to the side of another.

In this day and age where high schools and students are being torn apart by the media, these kids are a beacon of hope.  Without even realizing it, they are showing what true Christian love is suppose to be. They loved this old, white, straight, Christian conservative woman right where she was and didn’t care what labels she carried around. I loved and respected each and everyone of them the same way! We are and always will be family!

These wonderful human beings are my heroes!
