Memorial-Opera-House-You-Cant-Take-It-With-YouCasting Call! You Can't Take It With You
At first, the Sycamores seem mad, but it is not long before we realize that if they are mad, the rest of the world is madder.

As the weather is warming up, we are preparing for our summer show at Theatre at the Center. The Tin Woman is a new play, running July 13 to Aug. 13 written by Sean Grennan, who wrote Making God Laugh, the stage work which delighted our audiences in 2012. I have known Sean for years and since my first encounter with The Tin Woman, I knew I wanted the chance to work on it.
