Welcome to Spring on Stage!

Thank you all for joining us for Something New Studio Drama Club's presentation of Spring on Stage!  We are all so excited to show you what we have been working on for the past few months.  In a world that has been so far from normal for so many for so long we are thrilled that our group has been able to bring a slight bit of normalcy back to life.  Through even the most challenging of rehearsals we all came together to know that we were creating something bigger than each of us.  Building our own community that we are thrilled to share with you today.

Oscar Wilde, the playwright of one of our shows today regarded theatre as "the greatest of all art forms and the most immediate way in which a human being can share with another the sense of what it is to be a human being."  How fitting this quote has become in today's world.  

We encourage you to sit back, relax and enjoy our reminder of what it is to be a human being.
