-CONGRATULATIONS to cast and crew of "After Hours"! Your hard work made our production a success!!
You asked for it and you got it!
This year we will begin a journey that will engage your body and mind, challenge your perception of yourself and others, increase your confidence and comfort in front of an audience and in social situations, enhance your ability to empathize with others, and spark your imagination. And we’ll accomplish all of this while having FUN!
