Keeping theater alive in the modern era.

We decided that people in this modern time, may not watch theater as often as people used too. We are doing the Riverside Festival Stage in the City Park, because they are a professional theater that connects their audience with the artists. It is great that they want to connect their audience to the artist because it helps them understand theater. Theater is one of the best ways to portray the arts, it is also the most visual. Theater is the father to movies, but in theater, the crowd is right in front of the actual actors, instead of watching them. Theater was once the best way for people to portray their artistic ability, and it can still be a great way to do it.
