Empress Community Hall
Tickets $25 available from organizers, Village Office and That's Empressive
Here's the deal . . .
Folks are organizing a Summer Theatre School for the area's kids. Professionals will teach drama, dancing, stagecraft, make-up and all that sort of thing and at the end of the week the kids will put on a performance that will no doubt bring rave reviews! But that sort of thing costs money so to keep the kids' participation fees as low as possible the community is beating the bushes to raise $$$.
First up is a fund raising dinner to be held at the Empress Community Hall. Entertainment and a silent auction included in the ticket price.
