Went with my daughter to this amazing performance with a great story line. The musical was exactly what we wanted to see and the performers stunned my daughter with their talent.

Season ticket holders for years. New season should be great. Annie was a great start. A touring group that augments with local talent, which is great for the audience and great for the local acting talent. Renovations have been an excellent addition.

Looks like you received your answer, but just a tip... If you are on the mailing list for the theater, you will often receive discounted ticket offers as show dates draw nearer :)
