COVID-19 was, and is, a devastating  situation that caused us to close our doors for a while. But now we are open again, this time  in a reduced "COVID-19 Compliant" environment of socially distanced seating plus all the personal safety requirements in place. The Show Must Go On!

Without your generous support our work to provide you with the Arts would not be possible, especially during this trying year. COVID19 has thrown huge roadblocks into our plan but your help we have found new media delivery avenues such as the Drive-In and Live Streaming, and new safety protocols have kept the show going.  Thank You All.
