Comments about the book:
Theatrically Speaking by Enid Holm is a brilliant,
down-home, cracker barrel smart compendium of fundamentals regarding community
theatre. Every worker in community theatre, and everyone dreaming of starting
a community theatre must have Theatrically Speaking.
- Paul Baker
This is a candid work, thoughtful and provocative, filled with personal
insight . . . clearly the result of a well spent life . . . a grand effort
to reorient and organize community theatre for generations!
- John Paul Batiste, Executive Director, Texas Commission on the Arts

reference for the smooth running of a theatre company. . . . This book
wins our highest recommendation.
