BROADWAY BRUNCH PREMIERE: THE GLASS MENAGERIE
Grab your tickets today before they are available to the public for Grace's very first Broadway Brunch!

On Sunday, November 18th, we are premiering this exciting, insightful, fun, and delicious way of worshipping with scenes from Tennessee Williams' classic, The Glass Menagerie, directed by Julie Skrzypek . (Stay tuned for the announcement of our cast and caterer.)
 
Tickets are available via EventBrite for a suggested donation of only $5.00. Buy your tickets and learn more here. (bit.ly/BroadwayBrunchNovember2018) The password is:  GlassAtGrace2018(Ticket sales become public on Monday morning, October 29th.)

Broadway Brunch (BB) is Grace's version of dinner theatre, a creative worship approach that integrates liturgical and theatrical arts. It builds on our rich, Christian tradition of combining theme-rich storytelling with a tasty meal as we connect with ourselves, God, and each other.

We'll feature some of Atlanta's most talented artists - directors, actors, and playwrights as well, along with some of Broadway's classic dramas, comedies, and musicals. We look forward to enjoying good stories with good messages with you every 3rd Sunday at Grace.
