Summer Youth Theatre:

Our drama group (ages 10-13) has been working hard at on our production of “Pericles”. We are planning to perform (or at least workshop) this humorous and action-packed adaptation of Shakespeare’s play on: Wed, Aug. 24 & Thurs, Aug. 25 at 7:00 pm.  This will be an outdoor performance (weather permitting), so bring something to sit on (in case of rain, we’ll move indoors).
