Theatre has been around for hundreds of years. When these movies, internet games, magazines and TV shows were not yet existing, theatrical shows were already there to entertain people and let them experience fun, laughter, sadness, love and everything.
Soho Think Tank was created by a playwright/director in 1984 to give entertainment to people. Taking his job seriously, he started to accept theatre actors to play for his show. Since, he has no place to do the show yet, he decided to rent home with a contemporary garage door in New York, a small space enough for them to create a stage show. Preparing for the play, actors, directors and the staff trained hard to deliver a great performance since it was a first launching of their show. Until now, Soho Think Tank still does the same kind of training and put in the same level of passion for their shows.
A lot of people describe our theatre play as something magical, and truly an extraordinary experience for them. They bring their family members and friends to watch the performances of Soho Think Tank actors. Our story will never get old, every performance we give is like a brand new thing. We always feature new actors, new directors and new storylines as we want all our actors and directors to experience different kinds of stories to play as well as to provide maximum entertainment value to our audiences.
Soho Think Tank has now expanded from a small space of a garage to a big theater hall with the help of our supporters and donors. Our theatre is for rent to the independent theatre community who need a place for their shows and other organizations who need venues for their events.
Our community is also in need of help, we are accepting donations from those who want to support the theatre community. This is geared to serve as compensation for our actors and staff for their hard work and for the maintenances of the theatre and its security. Also, this will go a long way to hiring more actors to give them a chance to showcase their talents. Giving them a chance to perform is just like giving them a new life. We want these actors to continue what Soho Think Tank started.
We are also accepting students who want to be exposed to what its like in theatre. We even encourage students to hold their own theatre plays so that they can learn about the kind of hard work and passion that we put in every production. You can reserve your slot now and schedule it early.
Soho Think Tank is inviting you to watch our shows every weekend nights starting at 8:00 pm. It is better to bring your children with you for them to experience the theatrical world.
We hope you can support us till the end. We will guarantee you that from the donations you give, we can promote better the cultural diversity of the independent performers. To inform the world that you can learn a lot from theatres.
Thank you for visiting us, kindly browse this website to see more information about us.
I just finished the 12-day festival of independent theatre and the weirdness known as the Soho Think Tank theater show. I had a chance to watch a few shows, including a couple of old favorites. I also got a chance to talk with a couple of performers on the show because I am really a fan of theatrical shows and I decided to write a blog post based on what I told a couple of them. I have posted blogs already about the theatre shows.
This time I will write the reason why I support theatrical shows. First, it’s for independent theatrical musicians and actors who depend on ticket sales to make their living. For some of these performers, they bounce from festival to festival and make a good portion of their income from their take. Some even use one festival to pay for the next one. Imagine the life they have, if no one goes to the theatre to watch their show, they will take home nothing.
In the world we are living now, only few people appreciates theatrical shows either older ones or the geek ones.
Second, similar to books and movies, theatre shows allow us to escape for a time being. The theatre often feels more realistic. While shows can help us enter the world of the story, and temporarily leave our own lives, it can also deliver meaning into our lives as well. Maybe the story brings different perspective of the world that you don’t even notice.
Lastly, just like any form of art, you can really appreciate the hard work, sincerity, passion and dedication of the actors, directors, production staff, etc. that bring amazing and realistic shows to you from time to time.
Maybe you should start supporting theatrical shows too. There are a lot to learn on these kinds of plays and you will help more independent theater actors and staff.
