Tabak said, "I think arts are extremely important for students and the community. It gives them an outlet to do things they don't normally do. It creates a safe environment for people to experience emotions and feelings. I think it's helpful to do that in the context of art and it let's the students have a safe space so that when those things kind of come up in their lives, they might be more prepared for them."
Tabak also added, "It's also a great way to develop a sense of community. You get to work together, the theater is so collaborative and you can't do it on your own. It builds teamwork and just a really collaborative environment."
