Theatre changed Leah’s life. Leah talks about vulnerability, community and second chances.
“You become so vulnerable and everybody learns to accept one another, regardless of what happened 5 minutes ago, 5 years ago. You are there in that moment and you are creating something you get to share. It creates this beautiful world.”
The CIVIC has always pledged to be a light to illuminate the darkness.
But in March, our stage went dark due to the pandemic. We are counting down the days until it is safe to open our doors once more and bring the lights back up on live theatre in our community. There are so many people counting on us to make it happen — from our patrons to the many people behind the scenes who have found a home at the South Bend Civic Theatre.
The pandemic may have changed theatre temporarily, but we have discovered that the South Bend Civic Theatre has changed lives forever.
Through our HOMECOMING project, we will share the true stories of the many people who have discovered a home at the CIVIC. They’ve also found acceptance, inclusion, and family — both on the stage, in the audience, and behind the curtain.
With your help, I hope the South Bend Civic Theatre can celebrate a true HOMECOMING in just a few months.
