It’s been nearly eight months since our last performance, and with no incoming ticket revenue until February, we are relying on your generosity now more than ever. There is no admission fee for this performance, but we are seeking financial donations to the SSO, and each donation offers you a chance to win a gift…
“We ask that all attendees observe proper social distancing, and highly encourage everyone to wear their favorite masks while we are gathered.”
