Summary The beginning of the 21st century brought with it many trials, many of which have torn holes in our concepts of community, and created fissures between people. In our search for ways to re-create strong community, this project examined the ways that community theatre brings disconnected individuals and groups together through one common interest, giving many opportunities to reconnect, to heal and to grow. The project tracked the ways in which a theatrical community is created, both theoretical and practical levels within and around the production of a farcical comedy, Bewitchin' the West, adapted and written by the author, and co-playwright Aletheia Regier. This play was written with the intention of creating community in community theatre between generations, cultures and backgrounds and taps into the style of American melodrama, a genre of theatre that has always belonged to the masses.
