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

. . . Theatrically Speaking is an extraordinarily useful reference for the smooth running of a theatre company. . . . This book wins our highest recommendation.
- from Off The Shelf, STAGE DIRECTIONS magazine
