One thought on “Upcoming productions and events!

  1. Thanks for doing this! I hope you have enough success to make this an annual event, and the chances are that a series of short plays set and performed in bars will find full and happy audiences there (as they do in Charlottesville). I’m very taken with off-site theatre: if you can’t get the audience to the theater, and many theatre groups can’t, why not take the theatre to the audience.
