It is Sunday. We open on Wednesday. A curious day of the week to open. We have offered a THEATER PROFESSIONALS DISCOUNT for our two Wednesday evenings - bring a program from a current production, if you're in it, you get in for half-price.

She chatted up the attendents, passed out a lot of postcards, and got a lot of attention. Of course, I am trying to picture a statuesque knock-out like Sarah walking into an (ahem) horror movie convention and not attracting attention.

While the workshop is sometimes referred to as a camp, that moniker is misleading: On an average day, students sit through six hours of classes ... (more)
