A new addition to our programming is the highly anticipated Tuesday Night Fringe Series. Ticket sales are going great for these offerings and we are thrilled with this new endeavor. These are contemporary works by both established and emerging playwrights with the fundamental purpose of promoting thought and communication about social issues while educating and entertaining our audience through the theatrical performance. Themes include a conversation between Sigmund Freud and C.S. Lewis, the Holocaust, a one-night stand, an unusual birth and celebrating life-changing moments and the clothes we wore during them--all happening on Tuesday nights." '
