If you are a regular reader of this Blog, you know that one of my major themes is the power of collaboration. I have never known a collaborative effort between businesses that didn’t benefit all of the businesses involved.
The same is true for non-profits. We know that Whidbey is overflowing with non-profits doing an array of great work for our community.
Those of you who know me also know that one of the hats I wear that gives me great pleasure and satisfaction is serving on the Board of the Whidbey Children’s Theater (WCT).
When WCT moved their offices and performance facility to the Langley Middle School Auditorium, that was the beginning of a great collaboration between the South Whidbey School District and WCT.
With money for theater projects no longer available in our public school system, WCT is providing many classes that fill this void.
Recently, two more additions have been added to collaborations between WCT and other organizations. Beginning next summer, WCT will be working with Island Shakespeare Festival to bring the Classic Conservatory for Young Adults (CCYA) to WCT (check out the details on a Blog for the Whidbey Children’s Theater
Also on the horizon, WCT is working closely with the South Whidbey High School Drama Club and the high school personnel to help produce a February play, the first show developed in the high school for the high school stage since 2009.
Just as with businesses, I am confident these collaborations will benefit WCT and the organizations with whom they are partnering.
