Thank you to our amazing patrons that attended our New Works performance Portraits of Strenth - Empowering Women last Saturday evening the 7th of October.  We had to share this photo sent to us via Facebook by a patron.

Thank you as well to the incredible staff at the Mitby Theater.

We believe our New Work performances are one of the best kept secrets in Madison.  Help us end this fact and tell friends and family alike about our performance next year.  Save the dates of October 6th and 13th for 2018!  Your word of mouth is our very best advertisement.  Thank you again!
