News of Interest to Bards...

Seussical was a smash hit as audiences enjoyed a journey to Whoville with The Cat in the Hat, Horton, JoJo, and all the Seussian gang. We hope that all five audiences enjoyed the show as much as we enjoyed putting it on!

Fiddler on the Roof was a very traditional smash hit! Thanks to all the cast and crew for their hard work; and of course, all five audiences, without whom, there would be no show. L'chaim!
