We have a ‘giving tree’ in our lobby. On this costume piece, from a previous production, you will find little slips of paper with items that make the theatre function from day to day and from year to year. Small items, such as stand lights for the musicians or assorted buttons for the costumers to large items such as LED lighting instruments, smoke machines and sound equipment are all on the giving tree. Any donation is greatly appreciated and it gives you a chance to specify where you would like to help. Past years it was the Technicolor Dreamcoat from Our production of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat and and amazing green dress from My Fair Lady. Come find out what it will be this season.
Thank you for your support now and over the years. We strive to bring you the highest quality of live performance and hope to continue to do so for many years to come. Your donations help us to focus on the important part of live performance, YOU and your enjoyment. We’ll look forward to seeing you this summer.
