We are currently scheduling some shows for 2022.  Check out our calendar page for updates.

While our live shows were postponed or cancelled because of the pandemic, we  collaborated with Falcon Takes Flight on some online versions of productions we did with them over the past eight years. Each offering is performed in "readers' theatre," which is a dramatic reading that emphasizes the importance of the words.  We were quite honored to support these works with live music when we performed them as part of Campbell County Library's Signature Series.  And we are happy to support these online productions with our recorded library.
