A WRINKLE IN TIME
Opening This Saturday, Sept. 11
By John Glore
Adapted from the novel by Madeleine L’Engle
Directed by Michael Coleman

One of literature’s most enduring young heroines, Meg Murry, is back – braces, stubbornness and all. Once again, she’s joining forces with Mrs. Whatsit, Charles Wallace, Calvin O’Keefe and more to battle the forces of evil so she can rescue her father, save humanity and find herself. In the end, we know two things for sure: 1. Love can overcome evil and 2. There IS such a thing as a tesseract.

LEGALLY BLOND the MUSICAL
WORKSHOP

Come learn from professional, experienced directors and arts educators in our Legally Blonde, The Musical Workshop. We will be using the full Broadway version of the show, not a youth version. The workshop is open to 13 to 20-year-olds.

Synopsis: Elle Woods appears to have it all. Her life is turned upside down when her boyfriend Warner dumps her so he can attend Harvard Law. Determined to get him back, Elle ingeniously charms her way into the prestigious law school. While there, she struggles with peers, professors, and her ex. With the support of some new friends, though, Elle quickly realizes her potential and sets out to prove herself to the world.
