Mystery Dinner Theater
Well, believe it or not, it's time to start preparing for the Mystery Dinner Theater. This year's script has been written by our very own Chelsea Rowe and she has written in a fairly large cast. With that being said, we are looking for anyone interested in performing and having an amazing time sharing their talents. No experience is necessary but time commitment is. We will begin rehearsing once a week from approximately 7 to 9 p.m. the beginning of June. The performance dates are Aug. 23 and 24. Please see the yellow Mystery Box and sign-ups in the Welcome Center.
