Participation in our productions is free. We ask only that you invest your time with us.

Auditions for summer melodramas will be held May 21 and 22 at 6:30 p.m. You need only attend one audition night. Please bring your calendars to match rehearsal and show dates with your schedule. Most roles are for adult and young-adult parts, although all ages are welcome to try out. Our shorter rehearsal schedule and light-hearted plays are just right for both the experienced and inexperienced.

AND, for something completely different, consider our October musical dinner theatre production of "Nevermore - The Imaginary Life and Mysterious Death of Edgar Allan Poe" This dynamic production is being cast early to allow for the creation of the necessary wardrobe and to give our future cast plenty of time to get into the roles. Auditions are at 6:30 p.m. on June 25 and June 26. We are looking for men and women ages 16 and older to fill 7+ roles. Please bring a prepared song and a copy of the music for the accompanist.

Help us shed some light on the subject!

Thanks to several grants and donations ranging from a few dollars to two thousand, we are close to $10,000 of the $17,000 we need to replace our aging lighting system.
