Lorrie - It's funny how Art imitates life sometimes, just as life imitates Art at other times.

Hi Lorrie... I heard that the production is very nicely done and the show is quite enjoyable.  I may need to go catch this one before the run ends!

Thanks Lorrie, I am new to the area and love life theatre.  I am a huge fan of community theatre as well.  I look forward to seeing this show before it closes.  Thanks for letting us know.
