Thank you!

A Christmas Carol Cast thankyou-2014

Thank you all for supporting us and attending our plays during 2014, and a special thanks to those of you who donated to our end-of-year matching grant campaign.

Presenting high-quality Shakespeare (and Dickens) with a young company is challenging. It takes a unique group of kids and a unique audience to pull it off. We would never have been able to come this far without your attendance and support. Thank you.

Wishing you all a wonderful 2015!
