差不多六年前,我第一次在路易斯波特的圣诞庆典上发现自己。I sat there,awed by the level of talent that performed that night,from a bunch of kids under 12.

Over these past few years I've discovered that there is indeed an inexplicable bubble of talent in central Newfoundland from people of all ages and it is evident at a very early age.

The musical director of Gander's Beyond the Overpass Theater,莱斯利休利特在纽芬兰中部,她告诉我,在“超越青年”合唱团中,有超过平均水平、音高完美的歌手,这证实了我的怀疑。

天桥外,choir and theatre company,由休利特和艺术总监杰米·哈丁领导,2011年从纽敦迁至甘德。去年,他们决定从一个正规的剧目组织转变为完全关注青年。

学生们从道具中学习戏剧制作的所有知识,集设计,服装,推广,fundraising as well as performance.

But that's not all they learn,and this is even more important.

"In theatre you have to be honest,你和你周围的人,你必须建立这种信任,如果人们在他们的生活中接受这种信任,并过上这样的生活,I think a lot of world issues would be solved and people would learn to understand each other a lot better," said Hewlett.

"It's a place where all are accepted.Theatre teaches that.每个人都有不同和重要的东西要带到桌子上。”

Having discovered and mentored a significant pool of talent,last summer,14至24岁的年轻演员参加了天桥青年艺术节之后的第一次活动,an initiative that came on the heels of an off-Broadway production of "Peter and the Starcatcher",他们第一次完全和所有年轻人一起完成了百老汇的长篇制作。

But that's just the beginning.有更大的视野;to build a vibrant,纽芬兰中部可持续艺术社区。yabo88官网

"With so many artistic young people,we can shape the yabo88官网community and it's a beautiful way for a community to grow." Hewlett says.

我对纽芬兰中部的艺术和艺术家有很多想法,我也知道,无论付出多大的努力去创造,just one variable is out of the artists' control,但他们最需要的是观众。只有像你我这样的人yabo88官网参加演出,并将艺术作为社区和我们生活的重要组成部分,艺术社区才能发挥其非凡的潜力。

艺术体现了内在完整性的承诺,”英国哲学家阿兰·德波顿说。

下次你发现有现场演出时,单击Netflix,关掉笔记本电脑,买张票。Go fill up on some live entertainment and contribute to local arts at the same time.

也许在你能说的路上,关于纽芬兰中部的一些年轻人,“我认识他们的时候”。因为有了支持和培育的社区观众,他们就能取得成功,yabo88官网也许是我们无法想象的。

也,听广播节目,Bridges,here.
