These courtroom comedic drama operettas promise the best local voices, accompanied by antics and laughs in the intimate setting of the CFCArts Black Box Theatre.

Wolf and to be premiering the work in Central Florida" said Chief Executive Director and show producer, Theresa Smith-Levin. "We are also simply thrilled to be partnering with our dear friends at CFCArts to present the work in their beautiful theater space".
