SPRING PERFORMANCE DATES AND LOCATION MOVING
Jan
28
to Feb 28

SPRING PERFORMANCE DATES AND LOCATION MOVING

We are needing to shift dates of Spring Performance which means we need to shift out of the new theater. There are several options for this year. Please let us know if you prefer the 7/8 of June at a new theatre or 15/16 of June at the Truax (REALLY for the last time). Both day and evening performance schedule shifts will hold.

We will do our best to accommodate everyone and are very sorry for the switch. There are several factors at play. 

Feedback is welcome.
