It’s almost February and the Theatre Cluster at Booket T. is already going strong in 2016.  This week our Mime Show, “Children of War,” gets started and then the African-American Heritage Show Collaboration will run in early February.  There are lots of ways to get involved by volunteering your time to “Feed the Kids,” working concessions for our shows or volunteering at the upcoming Winter Ball.  If you have any questions about how to get involved or think you might be interested in serving on our Theatre Guild Board next year, please don’t hesitate to contact me at:
