A TASTE OF THEATER FESTIVAL 2015
Victor Gulley PRESENTS “A Taste of Theatre Festival”, where theatre talents take the stage and shine with immediate feedback from the most important component of a successful play, you, the audience! Get a wonderful introduction into the fascinating world of theatre as you watch one scene of six different plays each night.
