Doors open that night at 6:30 for the 7 p.m. show. Admission is by donation. Refreshments will be sold before the show and at intermission. In addition, Candy-Grams will be sold for $1 each. Candy-Grams are notes of encouragement or congratulations that you may send to members of the cast and crew.

This is her senior graduation project.
