Educational Theatre Association Asks South Williamsport to Reconsider Cancellation of SPAMALOT Photos Educational Theatre Association Asks South Williamsport to Reconsider Cancellation of SPAMALOT

Today, Educational Theatre Association Executive Director Julie Woffington wrote to the school district:
