Performances will be held at 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights, September 10-12 and next weekend September 17-19, as well as a matinee performances on both Sundays the 13th and 20th at 2:30. Tickets may be reserved at the Playhouse office in advance or available at the door with space permitting and social distancing being encouraged.

Adoptable Pets

Body
HI THERE, my name is Daisy and I’m a single red head looking for a warm lap to nap on. I can be pretty shy at first but my lovable side will come with time.

I just might pretend they don’t exist. Are you my perfect match?
