A fresh start[edit]

I've come here from a question posed on the Wikiproject page. I've archived the old talk for a fresh start and will take a look at cleaning up the article a little and remove some of the sillier tags (who thought the subject was "non-notable"?). The present version suggests there is a difference in usage in the US and UK. This isn't accurate. Community theatre may be created entirely by amateurs (without any pejorative sense), professionals, or a mixture of the two. There is overlap with amateur theatre but the two terms are not identical. The same is true of their relations with "popular theatre." Any discussions of the relationships between the terms needs to be grounded in citations of reliable, third-party sources, as per usual. If anyone has the time and energy to improve the article, I strongly encourage them to do so. DionysosProteus (talk) 01:22, 9 August 2009 (UTC)

I've cleaned it and provided sources. It's a small article and each section needs a lot more, but it's a clean framework now. DionysosProteus (talk) 02:36, 9 August 2009 (UTC)

Added Canadian[edit]

Hi. Added a little bit on the Canadian side of things. Could probably use some better source material. It's fairly easy to find, in this case, I think. Andwats (talk) 04:34, 21 April 2010 (UTC)
