Outreach

Be Theatre is committed to opening doors throughout the community.  We are honored to work with outstanding community partners such as The San Angelo Museum of Fine Arts and Tom Green County Library.   While performance arts is fun and exciting, our goal always remains the same: To inspire. 


 ANNUAL BE THEATRE PROGRAMS

THE LITERATURE ALIVE PROJECT
Be Theatre and The Tom Green County Library bring The Literature Alive Project to the 3rd floor in the Suggs Community Room at the library once a year.   The Literature Alive Project brings classic literature to life through free public performances.  Over 6,000 people have attended Literature Alive over the past 5 years.  After the show, every child leaves the library with a new book and inspiration from the magical show they've just experienced! 

With books in hand, they leave the library inspired to read!  Past shows include Raggedy Ann & Andy, The House at Pooh Corner and How to Grow Magic Beans: The True Story of Jack, the Beanstalk, Mother Goose on the Loose, Junie B Jones the Musical, and How I Became A Pirate. 

Next year's show is "Where the Wild Things Are" and will be an interactive storytelling experience.  Click here to see more about it!

SHAKESPEARE ON THE CONCHO

In June, Be Theatre and The Museum of Fine Arts came together to bring Shakespeare to San Angelo in a program fittingly called, "Shakespeare on the Concho." SOC founder and creator,Jon Mark Hogg, developed this program with SAMFA Executive Director Howard Taylor in efforts to expand the performance arts in the community.  SOC is presented outdoors  with simple sets and costumes in keeping with Shakespearean traditions as it was presented hundreds of years ago.  This is also a free event with no admission cost.  The 2014 production of Comedy of Errors was adapted in content and time by Mr. Hogg so that all ages could enjoy this hilarious piece of theatre!  The 2014 performance of Comedy of Errors was so successful, The 2015 performance of Much Ado About Nothing was extended to 3 weekends. 

2018 Shakespeare on the Concho is Macbeth, running in June 2018. 


CHARITABLE DONATIONS

BREAST CANCER RESEARCH FOUNDATION
In 2013, Be Theatre donated over $1000 to The Breast Cancer Research Foundation through money raised during Pinkalicious The Musical.  The partnership with BCRF allowed us to reach beyond our community to a national foundation committed to the support and research of breast Cancer.  Be Theatre sponsored 2 cupcake parties and a portion of all ticket sales were donated to BCRF. 


CONCHO VALLEY HOME FOR GIRLS/CHILDREN'S EMERGENCY SHELTER
In January 2015, Be Theatre partnerned with the CVHG to bring Graceland to the stage for a 4 performance event benefiting the Girls Home.  Instead of tickets, we asked each person attending to bring an item for their supply closet, or a monetary donation for the CVHG.  Together, we raised over $2400 in cash and gift cards, as well as adding over 1,000 items to their supply closet.

During our summer melodrama in 2017, we asked for items to restock their closet and brought in about 100 items in exchange for a free bag of popcorn!
