Song of The Sea -Get Your Tickets!

Wondrous Friends and Relations:

Please come out to see Willa (and Lila, Rebecca, Asha, and a whole cast of locals!) in Song of the Sea. Willa and her friends wrote the play last winter and now have starring roles!

The suggested donation for tickets is $15 per person. I encourage you to pay what you can or what you feel is appropriate, especially for those with kids! If you can or want to pay more then please do – It makes it possible for others who cannot pay full price to attend. Either way – Just come! Also, the tickets are considered a donation so they are tax deductible.

There are 12 shows! Help us fill the seats! It’s going to be a great show!

Thanks – Lara
