Glad you got to see the show!
There’s nothing like the experience of theatre. Laughing at the jokes, seeing how actors take on different characters, and being transported by the action that’s taking place just a few feet away.

Oct 12-21 – The Crucible
by Arthur Miller
directed by Charlie Sexton
In the rigid theocracy of Salem, rumors of women practicing witchcraft galvanize the town’s fears and suspicions. When a young girl accuses Elizabeth Proctor of being a witch, a frenzied trial ensues. Written in 1953 and based on historical people and events, Miller’s drama provided a mirror against the hysteria of the Red Scare in Cold War America.
Nov 9-18 – Welcome to Wandaland
by Ifa Bayeza
directed by Karen Edwards-Hunter, assisted by Julane Havens
4th grader Wanda is on a mission to learn everything there is to know in the world so that she can pass an intelligence test and catapult into a newly desegregated “gifted” school. As she learns about Civil Rights, the Cold War, & the Space Race, her test mania collides with her understanding of her place in this world.
Take the stage yourself!
