Due to the impact of the Coronavirus, Our 2020 Summer Season: Cabaret, The Diary of Anne Frank, and The Sound of Music; has been cancelled. For full details, read our news article.

We proudly stand in solidarity with the Black members of our community and across the nation during this time of pain, protest and yes, progress towards a better future. One without overreach of power; without a perception of superiority of one person over another; one with justice for all. Black Lives Matter. We join in the efforts to make that statement a reality in the minds and hearts of everyone in our community and around the world.
