For more than 50 years, Natick Drama Workshop has introduced young people from Natick and the surrounding ariea to the fun of being involved in community theatre.
After auditioning, casts work every Saturday morning for 10 weeks to produce a fund and creative show under the direction of professional staff. Public performances are held at the Natick Middle Schools in the fall and spring of each year.
The magic happens when NDW staff, volunteers, alumni, and board members work with our 5th - 8th grade cast of 60-80 students. As our actors rehearse, the volunteers design and create props, fashion costumes, and build elaborate and appealing sets that have delighted our audiences for years.
Kent County is one of the most severely underserved communities in Tennessee. To combat this adversity, Project Sprout seeks to nourish our neighbors at the most fundamental level with healthy food options and a strong support network. All members get a portion of each harvest and surpluses are donated to low-income families whose work schedules prevent them from volunteering.

With ten gardens and counting, Project Sprout has seen a significant improvement in mental and physical health for all participating community members. Other than lowering obesity, blood pressure, and depression rates, the crime rate has also fallen. Our children are doing better in school, reporting higher grades and aspirations, and better job prospects.
If you live near one of our gardens, get involved to receive portions of each harvest. We accept volunteers regardless of skill level. There is a rotation in roles, but we’ll teach you all the skills you need to know. Teenagers 14 years and older can earn community service credits for school in addition to getting produce for their families. Donations are also vital to our growth, as we use them for seed, fertilizer, tools, and outreach.
