    "No Shame and Mill Mountain are a perfect match. The success we have
experienced in reaching new audiences is really remarkable. No Shame serves
as means to attract and tap into a broader group of creative artists than
traditional theatre does. Our experience is that often traditional theatre
is either a bit daunting to those not in the profession or limiting to some
within it who want to try new maodels. But those feeling outside are
individuals with ideas that need to be heard. Bringing No Shame to our
theatre has enhanced the ways we can achieve our mission which is to
provide our entire region with theatrical and artistic outlets and

    "No Shame has been particularly useful in our intern program. These
developing performers are at a critical point in their careers. They need
as many and as frequent performance opportunities as possible. They need an
environment in which there is a freedom to experiment and grow with few
risks. No Shame has given them a chance to gain those valuable outlets."
