No matter your level of expertise, there is always something new to learn!

Theatre is more than a form of entertainment; it is a tool to enrich the lives of the participants as well as the patrons experiencing the show.  Performing, creating, and appreciating theatre brings richness and meaning to our heritage and culture.
