It’s pre-summer community theater season!

Lights, curtains, and jazz hands, oh my! It’s that time of year again (drumroll please!) pre- summer community theater season! Yes it’s a mouthful, but it works. This is the time of year where the local performance communities gather the most talented performers, directors and stage crews to put on amazing performances as beautiful and unique as the exceptional communities they call home. If you’d like to get involved in one of these fun productions, or just want a heads up on what productions are in the works to help plan your summer, here is a list of what’s up-and-coming for the summer theater season.
