EDITOR’S NOTE: This is the first of a new feature in The Biscuit, “My 3 Biggest Challenges.” Charlotte is teeming with creativity, but that doesn’t mean getting creative work here is easy. It takes passion, commitment and a supportive community. Each installment will highlight a different Queen City creative sharing the obstacles and issues they’re addressing right now in the pursuit of their passions. And, the perfect person to start us off is Becky Schultz.
Becky is the Executive Director of Three Bone Theatre, a local professional theatre company that specializes in adult contemporary plays. She believes in the power of great theatre to be a catalyst for conversation and change in our community. You can learn more about Three Bone Theatre’s production of Ugly Lies The Bone, opening January 23, at www.threebonetheatre.com.
Here are Becky’s Three Biggest Creative Challenges on January 16, 2020:
So. Many. Hats.
I’m a banker by day and theatre artist by night. All of the members of the Three Bone team have day jobs and we are constantly trying to balance our creative work with our jobs that pay the bills, not to mention our families and our own personal wellness.
Space, space and more space.
We got our start at a bar in NoDa, so we know how to work in unconventional locations. But, in order to keep growing and stretching ourselves artistically, we need access to affordable performance and rehearsal spaces that are designed for theatre.
Shop local. Drink local. Attend local.
Charlotteans love buying 704 gear and sipping local craft beer. But, when it comes to their entertainment, they tend to either stay home (#netflixandchill) or they go see a national performer. Put on some pants, check out the ASC Culture Guide and go support local theatre (or dance or music or visual art, etc.)
