Community Theatre United Kingdom
Community theatre and amateur theatre is understood to contribute to the social value of a community. It develops the skills, community spirit, and artistic sensibilities of those who participate, whether as actors, producers or members of the audience. It is sometimes used as a tool for social development, promoting ideas like gender equality, human rights, environment and democracy. The participants often identify issues of concerns and discuss possible solutions, with an enhanced tolerance for different perspectives with regard to the same problem. Such plays are staged in traditional meeting spaces, schools, prisons or other institutions, inviting an alternative and often spontaneous audience to watch.
