What are people saying?

We have loved being involved with Black Box, first as enthusiastic audience

members, and for the last year as cast members. The chance to be up on stage has

given the children so much confidence, and the opportunity for us all to be in a

play together was a unique, fun, and rewarding experience. I admire MaryAnne’s

eye for detail — the sets and costumes are always unbelievably professional

looking. We hope for at least 25 more years of BBP! -Lisa Duval

There’s one specific word that you hear repeatedly when talking about MaryAnne

and Black Box. That word is family. That’s what MaryAnne has built. A family.

The proverbial “Village”. From my very first Godspell rehearsal with her to just

last week when she filled out a “job reference” for Erin we have been part of this

amazing family. We have laughed together, cried together and even prayed

together. I have watched both Erin and Jeffrey absolutely blossom in the family

she has built. They have literally grown up in the Black Box family, even before

they were able to walk or talk. Now, not only are they walking and talking they’re

taking to the stage with abandon. Singing their hearts out. Acting silly. Making

life-long friends. Our nuclear family would not be what we are today without our

Black Box family. And there aren’t enough thanks in the world to let her know

how truly she has blessed our little family. -Meghan

MaryAnne,

Congratulations on your 25th year of bringing the love of theater to so many of the

kids, and adults, in Charlottesville.

Your love of theater, and of children, have created a magical place where kids

learn about growing up, and adults learn about staying young. It has been my

pleasure to work with you for the last few years and watch your vision excite and

mold the young. The seeds you plant in Charlottesville ripple far beyond. Thank

you on behalf of future audiences everywhere!

Truly, there is no place like home… – Carl
