shea_7birthdays_praying“I worked backstage with props and dressing the main character but I learned how everything worked and how a show is run. This was the first time I worked backstage so the whole process was new to me. I really enjoyed running around backstage helping people who needed it! I felt welcomed and could not have had a better time. I can’t believe I found an entire group of people who are so nice, funny, reliable, and dedicated; you hardly find that in one person let alone a group! I would absolutely recommend this to anyone who wants to be involved in the theater community. Everyone was wonderful and patient with me while I learned how things worked. I would consider myself lucky to work with Copious Love again. It was an amazing experience.” – Shea Gilchrist-Smith
