I am pleased to announce that we have been invited to the Arts for All Festival in Berea on Thursday, May 7th. 

The invitation came from someone who saw our play this past year and now knows how good we can be!  

The hours will be from 8:30 until 4 p.m.  Lunch will be provided - there will be over 800 students in attendance! This will be a great opportunity for us to show off our program.  We will be working with a project that will feature theatre masks (the comedy and tragedy ones). The children will take their masks home. All cutting involved will have to be before the event.  If anyone would either like to participate the day of or help with preparing for the event let us know before April 18th.  We could have a cutting party or we could take home the project and work at home. 

Any help appreciated so please email me your availability.
