Here's what people have to say about the importance of amateur theatre :

Theatre Festivals are more about taking part than winning and Cheshire Theatre Guild’s annual festival not only celebrates dramatic art that is popular with audiences, but also challenging material that may not be money-making. An independent view on the quality of the experience is a vital part of delivering customer and cast satisfaction in amateur theatre and this is what the CTG deliver every year for every festival’ (Spokesperson for a CTG member society)    

The founder of The Liverpool Institute for Performing Arts recently noted how a young Paul McCartney and George Harrison were once allowed to pass through his building unremarked because they were following a purely theoretical music course. The opportunity for practical experience in all areas of the arts is critical in the illumination of talent and in this sense the chances offered by amateur theatre to young people are increasingly vital.’         Tim Firth - Playwright.
