The old saying, "It takes a whole village to raise a child", rings true for many families who have participated in productions with Rainbow Youth Theatre over the past fifteen years. The actors seen on stage are a very small part of what takes place to put on a production. Ages of people participating are from preschool to seniors. To put on shows takes the talent of many. Tasks range from doing publicity to carpenters, who build sets.
The idea of Rainbow Youth Theatre came about during a conversation while waiting for the Powell River ferry. Four adults talked of wanting to do something to boost the confidence of youth in the Comox Valley. Now fifteen years later, seven shows are being proposed for this coming season. This society does not have an office, any full time staff or a building. Rainbow Youth Theatre's policy is that everyone who shows up to audition will be given the opportunity to perform.
Through these efforts, children who couldn't find their voice in public gained confidence to get up and sing on stage. Families have become stronger working together to make shows happen. The community as a whole gets involved to ensure the ongoing existence of these opportunities. More details are available at the Rainbow Youth Theatre website.
