Spring has officially sprung! Barrel Tasting Weekend, Spring Plays and St. Patty's Day. I encourage you to take in a spring play showing at your local elementary and high schools.

Improvised Musical
Tonight audience members take on the role of "producers" when they decide which improvised song will become the inspiration for an entire musical! Everything, absolutely everything, will be made up on the spot! What will the musical be about? Will it have a chance of making it to Broadway? You'll have to be there to find out! Accompaniment by the fabulous Win Meyerson who played for "Who's Line Is It, Anyway?" on television.
