Be Theatre is committed to opening doors throughout the community.  We are honored to work with outstanding community partners such as Boys and Girls Club of San Angelo, United Way of the Concho Valley, Open Arms Rape Crisis Center and LGBT+ Services, The San Angelo Museum of Fine Arts, Tom Green County Library, and more! While performance arts is fun and exciting, our goal always remains the same: To inspire. 


Every spring, the Literature Alive Project brings classic literature to life through free public performances.  Over 13,000 people have attended Literature Alive over the past 12 years and we've distributed over 9,400 free books to early readers.  After the show, every child leaves the theatre with a new book and inspiration from the magical show they've just experienced! 

In 2019, we moved our production to the San Angelo Performing Arts Center and perform in the Black Box Theatre.  This allowed us to reach a wider audience and give children a true theatrical experience.  We still partner with the Tom Green County Library, and shows will still be free for everyone. 

With books in hand, kids leave the our show 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 and the Beanstalk, Mother Goose on the Loose, Junie B Jones the Musical, How I Became A Pirate, Where the Wild Things Are, Dr. Seuss,The Stinky Cheese Man, The Little Engine that Could, Red Riding Hood and Zen Shorts.

Be Theatre has had over a decade of success with its annual Literature Alive Project, which works to bring popular children's books to life on stage and gives kids their own copy of the story for free. Going into our 12th season, Be Theatre piloted our new teen outreach program called the BEtween the Lines Project! Our intention is for Be Theatre to annually produce an impactful production that partners with local organizations and experts to open up discussions and build awareness towards issues faced in our own neighborhoods by young adults. 

We are piloting our BEtween the Lines Project with a musical called Isabel and the Runaway Train. The mission of this important show is to normalize the ability to respond supportively to a survivor of sexual maltreatment. Along with the play, the playwright created a training course to teach people how to respond verbally and non-verbally when someone discloses an incident to you. We were able to partner with Open Arms Rape Crisis Center, the Texas Association Against Sexual Assault, NAMI, and a licensed counselor with Region 15 to speak to our cast and audiences about the topics discussed. We were also able to partner with the Boys and Girls Club of San Angelo to bring the story, experts, and training to local teens. 



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. 

2019 Shakespeare on the Concho is A Midsummer Night's Dream, runs une 7,8,9, 14, 15 at 7pm at the Brooks and Bates Theatre at San Angelo PAC.

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. 

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!
