Hello, dear volunteers and friends!
The city has asked us to vacate our storage and office space in the Historic Masonic building due to the remodel and reassignment of space going on, and we have a pretty short window to do so.
We have a UHaul and a place to move into, so we would love to have folks during the day on TUESDAY MARCH 12 (yes that's tomorrow) to help load and unload the truck.
We will be starting when the truck arrives at 9:30 or so, and are scheduled to be done by 5:00.
Many hands lighten the load, so if you have an hour or two free, we would love to see you.
Please let us know if you are planning on coming later in the day, so we can notify you if we are done early, or are working at the new space.

We love our volunteers!

It pains us to do so, but we are taking the advice of the Sheriff's office. Today's presentation of Short and Sweet 2 is cancelled due to the horrendous road conditions. No travel has been advised and the last thing we want to do is endanger the lives of our cast, crew, and especially anyone travelling to see the show. Please stay safe out there if you must travel today. We are currently looking into rescheduling the show for another day, so please be on the lookout for news on that. ... See MoreSee Less

Friends! We are very sorry to say that tonight's (Feb. 23) production of Short and Sweet 2 is being cancelled due to the forecasted blizzard-like conditions. Have no fear, however, because tomorrow's show will still be happening at its regularly scheduled time! If you have preordered your tickets online for tonight, you can use those tickets for tomorrow's show. Thank you for your understanding, everyone, and we hope to see you tomorrow! Stay safe out there! ... See MoreSee Less
